The VI edition of dOT-design Outdoor Taste will be held from 18 to 23 April 2023, the most awaited event dedicated to outdoor design & living during the days of the Fuorisalone, within the official circuit of the Brera Design District.
A fascinating historical and artistic heritage in the heart of the city, on the occasion of the Milan Design Week, becomes the point of reference for operators and lovers of life en plein air and opens the doors of the cloisters of San Marco with an exhibition which, in the sign of continuity between inside and outside, is an expression of formal and aesthetic experimentation and hybridization of materials.
An exhibition space of 700 square meters presents a set of settings and solutions for the outdoors in the name of quality, well-being and conviviality.
Flooring, kitchens, pergolas, orangeries, spas, lights, furnishings and accessories offer visitors (operators, planners, companies, designers, home&garden lovers, builders, shopkeepers, hoteliers…) a range of high-level housing and design proposals, giving life in elegant ‘garden rooms’.
With a proposal that culminates in the unprecedented “open-air apartment”, with the CUBENATURE® at the center (a project by IODA studio for the Officina dei Giardini), a protected, evanescent and poetic microspace, in which high technology does not imposes and leaves nature the protagonist. CUBENATURE® is designed to accommodate people, whether they want to eat, study, relax or sleep.
Nature, stylistic inspiration also for furnishings and accessories, becomes a design element for all settings and opens up to a profound dialogue with people, while shape and geometry juggle with materials, between linearity and roundness, from the flooring to the seats, from the tables to the covers, to the accessories, in a continuous scenographic reference.
If in the unique, lively and full of energy setting of Piazza San Marco every element celebrates the beauty of the spaces and conviviality in the open air, the materials are at the center of the narratives in the Chiostri.
Threshold of relationship between interiors and exteriors, the loggias and garden of San Marco offer a story of in-out living in which objects reveal their creative genesis, reveal their material essence and manifest the qualities of use.
Steel and glass, wood and fabrics, ceramics and metals, colors and lights tell of creativity, research and planning, between artisan attention to detail and industrial production, in a creative mix of shapes, functions and material relationships: what happens in the cloisters is an in-depth analysis of knowledge contaminations that give life to special objects, summary and epilogue – in constant evolution – of cultures, territories and know-how.
