CasaPlatform@BiennaleVenice: the exhibitions and the Exhibition project
During the next Venice Biennale, Platform creates a unique and unprecedented event combining the experiences and the system of values expressed by Casa Platform and the Best Design initiative and sets it in the prestigious setting of Scuola Grande di Ns. Signora di Misericordia.
During the first three months of the Biennale (22.05_22.08), at CasaPlatform@BiennaleVenezia will take place 2 thematic exhibitions with the involvement of 140 architectural firms:
– Best Italian Interior Design: an overview of interior design, without geographical and typology limitation (residential, hospitality, retail, etc.), designed by Italian authors, through the selection of 70 projects, based on applications from all over Italy.
– Best International Houses: an overview of living places from across the world through the selection of 70 projects chosen by a scientific committee, based on applications from all over the world. For each one of the Exhibitions will be created a dedicated publication, in which the selected projects will be included. The publication will be available to all visitors to the Exhibition and offered for sale on Amazon Books.
With the brand Platform Best Design, the editorial staff launches in 2018 a unique editorial initiative, created to give visibility to the design skills of Italian architects and interior designers and beyond. Each year a different design theme is chosen with the aim of collecting, through free candidacy and through a rigorous selection by the Scientific Committee, a representative number of projects that have distinguished themselves for design quality within the chosen theme. The selected projects are brought together in a Volume and an Exhibition of projects through individual tables.
The Exhibition is normally inaugurated in a location of great symbolic value (in 2018 Triennale di Milano, in 2019 the former Roman Aquarium in Rome) and then made available to Orders and Foundations that wish to host it, thus creating a travelling exhibition able to offer great visibility to the selected Studios.
