3D-printed houses and sustainability at Milan Design Week 2018
The international design community descends on Milan every April for the world's biggest and most significant design event in the calendar, Milan Design Week. Throughout the week the city is alive with exhibitions, installations, talks and parties.
The event acts as a barometer for current and future trends in design. While most visitors are gauging the colors and forms of the moment, snapping and sharing them like fury, there is a growing appetite amongst designers to question this never-ending influx of new creations.
Instead of just adding more, designers are increasingly interested in reduction, eager to work with materials and processes that will hopefully have minimal impact on our resources in years to come.
In this short film, I visit five highlights from Milan Design Week.
