Design Week 2021

It is with great pleasure that 5VIE presents the eighth edition of 5VIE Design Week, underlining the need for a restart under the sign of a new constellation of values, which will be an inspiration for the protagonists of the post-pandemic future.

The 2021 edition will focus not only on objects but also on ideas, which are at the base of design - in the broadest sense of the project: from the Latin -pro avanti, jacere gettare. To design is to throw oneself forward; to design is to sow the seeds that will sprout tomorrow.

This is why 5VIE has chosen to dedicate the event - as every year - to a master of Italian design who we believe is particularly in line with the present day. The 2021 edition will therefore be a tribute to AG Fronzoni (1923-2002), an Italian designer, teacher and thinker, whose intellectual legacy is more relevant today than ever.

The events and initiatives of the 5VIE Design Week are composed of 5VIE productions, exhibitions and installations with guests and partners, meetings, talks and entertainment.

All activities will run on both physical and digital tracks, thanks to the platform that - after its launch in September 2020 - has been further expanded and implemented and is constantly evolving to become a virtual reference point for national and international communities of creatives, trendsetters and innovators.
