“A letto con il DESIGN – Design Hostel” (“Sleeping with DESIGN – Design Hostel”) is an original proposal in the panorama of events taking place in the city during the Milan Design Week 2017. The project seeks to approach design from “behind the scenes”, and literally enter into the life of the projects and the people thinking and making them. It’s a space that resembles a hostel, a temporary home or a “liveable factory”, which hybridizes and reinvents all these typologies together.
The project starts from Davide Crippa’s provocative idea to create a temporary hostel inside an early 20th century factory building, and open it during the design week to people who “think and make” design. The protagonists of the project will be welcomed in a temporary hostel which will come to life among the analog and digital factory machinery; every designer guest of the structure will provide a design project to be displayed in a customized setting, designed as a sleeping area. These products will constitute an exhibition visitable throughout the Milan Design Week; an exhibition that will lead us, step by step, through the “design rooms”.
