Milan Design Week is back for 2023

The Milano Verticale | UNA Esperienze opens its doors to the Fuorisalone

11 Apr 2023

Milan Design Week is one of the most eagerly awaited events in the city. Entire neighbourhoods are involved in installations, exhibitions and conferences, not to mention the unfailing events that colour the corners of the Lombard capital.

If you were wondering when Milan Design Week is, you should know that it opens on 17 April and closes on 23 April, as do the Fuorisalone 2023 events.

At UNA Esperienze there are big news: for the first time ever the Milano Verticale | UNA Esperienze, the brand's flagship hotel, opens its doors at the Fuorisalone and becomes part of the Brera Design Week.

The Milanese flagship hotel will host a selection of major international brands and is preparing to welcome enthusiasts for the duration of the design week.

Find out which exhibitions you will find within the walls of Milano Verticale | UNA Esperienze and the rich programme of events planned for this week.


I brand del design internazionale al Milano Verticale


FURLA will be among the brands at Milano Verticale, a global brand of accessible luxury that never fails to emphasise its artisanal and Italian roots.

The hotel's 4th-floor terrace will be transformed into a 300-square-metre showroom, which will be connected via an 'old Milan' style balcony to a VIP Lounge. For the brand, it becomes an opportunity to exclusively showcase its first Home collection: furniture, complements and accessories with fine finishes will be the protagonists of the exhibition.

GERVASONI 1882 will be exhibiting its design furniture at the venue, which tells of a contemporary world where elegance and informality go hand in hand. 

The Jeko collection created by designer Paola Navone will allow you to get in touch with ECOTeak, a material that comes from the reuse of beams and other elements recovered from the characteristic wooden houses of the Java Island.

YOUMEAND will use the spaces of the Milanese hotel to showcase its products: the aim is to enhance the angular surfaces by optimising their dimensions as part of the surrounding furnishings. An ambitious project that aims to get rid of classical stylistic features in order to find dynamic and innovative solutions. 

Fans of design and optical constructions will be surprised by the exhibition curated by Leica Camera AG, an internationally active brand in the field of cameras and sports optics. Its products guarantee the best images in the fields of visualisation and perception thanks to innovative technologies.

Visitors and enthusiasts will be able to enjoy the exhibitions and an aperitif prepared for the occasion, all to be enjoyed in the setting of the hotel's 1000 square metre garden, a true urban oasis.
