VENICE DESIGN 2019 is the largest Design exhibition in the context of the Venice Biennale. This exhibition will show a glimpse of the approaches of today’s international designers and is a witness as well as a proof of the current design scene. For its fourth consecutive year, the exhibition will be hosted by the European Cultural Centre in the historical location of Palazzo Michiel, facing the Grand Canal in the very heart of Venice. 

Our last edition, VENICE DESIGN 2018 hosted around 60 creators from 30 different countries and of various cultural backgrounds. Palazzo Michiel became an international Design platform for design investigations, contemporary mutations and innovative creative attitudes. In the past, we had the pleasure to collaborate with Creators and Design institutions such as Archivo Museum of Architecture and Design Mexico City, the V.I.A Paris, Studio Nendo, Ying Gao, Naqsh Collective, ll’atelier, About a Worker, Chapel Petrassi, Gunjan Gupta and the first National Pavilion of Pakistan with the presence of Coalesce Studio.

VENICE DESIGN is not only a platform for an international vision on design but, also shows the Design scene in Venice. A city map has been created proposing to discover 42 independent designers who all live and work in Venice. 

In the context of the Venice Art Biennale, VENICE DESIGN 2019 will highlight international creative perspectives in the field of Design. As an interdisciplinary platform, Palazzo Michiel is a place, a well where to draw and discover Designers’ inspirations, dive into them and even experiment them.
