26 set Italian Design Days @IDS
The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada –West, the Consulate General of Italy in Vancouver and the Italian Trade Commission Toronto are organizing a series of events called “Italian Design Days @IDS” during IDS – Interior Design Show Vancouver, that will take place during the first week of October (1st-8th).
Vancouver has been in the last years a very important showcase for Made in Italy Design, thanks to the announcement of new projects by local developers in collaboration with Italian companies (e.g. Palazzi di Westbank, in collaboration with Studio Lissoni), and the opening of new showrooms of high-end brands (Poliform, Armani Casa, Stefano Ricci etc.). We will be celebrating the significance of Italian Design in Vancouver during the Italian Design Day @ IDS with a series of engaging events.
Zoom to Zoom with a World Renowned Italian Designer
The past editions of Italian Design Day in Vancouver saw the participation of architect Stefano Pujatti, founder, and president of the ELASTICOSPA architecture firm; and Studio Boeri (Milan) and their visionary “Vertical Forest” development.
The 2020 edition will be concluded with a complimentary webinar featuring a world renowned Italian designer on November 5th, the day dedicated to the yearly celebrations of Italian design all around the world by all Italian institutions.
