Event Details


The 8th edition of Isola Design Festival, organized by the digital and physical design platform Isola, will welcome visitors during Milan Design Week, from 15 to 21 April 2024.
Venturing into new locations such as Lampo Milano, WAO PL7, and Galleria Bonelli within the Isola Design District that were never opened during Milan Design Week, Isola is set to turn these hidden gems into prominent hotspots. These and many other venues will point towards the future of design and cultivate an atmosphere of creativity and exchange throughout the entire neighborhood. 
Isola’s annual theme titled “This Future is Currently Unavailable” for 2024 is a statement to provoke action, launching a call to all designers to imagine how design and new craftsmanship can shape the future. At the core of the vaste programme of Isola Design Festival 2024 are three main hubs, Lampo Milano, WAO PL7, and Stecca 3.0, and five shows curated by Isola’s curatorial team led by Elif Resitoglu(creative director of Isola Design Group) and guest curators.
Lampo Milano exhibitions:
Isola Design Gallery focusing on collectible design, unique designs with a narrative, Dutch design and contemporary products crafted by independent designers and design studios from all over the world.
Is One Life Enough? features a curated selection of collectible pieces and market-ready products crafted using sustainable materials and circular methods. It sparks a dialogue on the countless possibilities within a human, product, and material lifetime while showcasing ways to infuse new life into products designed for a single life cycle.
Lampo Milano will serve as the venue for the Isola Design Store and Media Corner, and a dedicated space for Talks and Panel Discussions.
