About Superdesign Show



Since 2000 Superstudio, with its two locations Superstudio Più and Superstudio 13, has been the initiator of the project that spread design into the city, bringing it out from its institutional headquarters of the Fair. Starting from the Tortona District, where Superstudio is based, the April Design Week   expanded throughout the whole Milan. A true city phenomenon replicated by other districts and a case study around the world.

The great quality, commitment and selection of Superstudio’s project has changed title over the years (from Temporary Museum for New Design to Superdesign Show) but it has always been led by Gisella Borioli, CEO of Superstudio Group with the collaboration of Giulio Cappellini, designer, art director and great character of the world of design. The project has helped the city of Milan to earn a unique and international prestige and authority.

Today Superdesign Show presents a coordinated direction and continues following its mission: “Only The Best“. Innovating constantly, presenting the latest valuable news from the worlds of design, technology and lifestyle in a landscape that unites great brands and start-up, archistars and young designers, industrial productions and proposals of craftsmanship under the sign of quality. This is the goal we achieve in our Milan venues during every Design Week.
