September, the month everything gets going again after the summer break. Schools, first and foremost, but also professional activities, especially in the fashion world – from New York to London by way of Milan and Paris – and design. The following are four unmissable events in which design in all its many facets becomes not just a promoter of products but also of lifestyles and cultural events.
Kartell at LoveITDetroit
From 1st September until the end of the month Michigan will be the focal point for a number of cultural events – from the NAIAS Detroit Motor Show to the Detroit Jazz Festival, Dlectricity (Detroit’s Nighttime Exhibition of Art & Light) and the Detroit Month of Design. One of the events is LoveITDetroit, an active design, innovation and architecture exhibition that represents and pays tribute to the importance of Italian design abroad, organised by the Italian Consulate in Detroit as part of its four-year campaign promoting Italian design in the only American city designated a UNESCO City of Design. In their role as Global Ambassadors for Italian Design, Ludovica + Roberto Palomba have invited some of Italy’s most representative brands to take part. Alongside Foscarini and Ginori 1735, Kartell, for which the Palomba Serafini studio designed the outdoor HiRay Collection, has been accorded a place of honour.
