exhibit your work in the historical centre of milan or online, on the platform, in the district dedicated to excellence in art-design, collectibles and one-offs during milan design week (4 - 10 september 2021)


5VIE Design Week 2021

5VIE coordinates and organizes a series of events, exhibitions, installations and performances since 2014 for Milano Design Week in the eponymous district, which is the historical centre of Milan. Over the years, 5VIE established itself as an international point of reference for art-design, collectibles and one-offs, every year attracting an increasingly wider audience of critics, curators, journalists, collectors and buyers.
Even with the difficulties of the last year, 5VIE did not stop and - including the two editions of 5VIE D'N'A Design'n'Art for a Better World - even created a series of activities in a "hybrid" way: live in the streets of the district and online on the platform
This year the events and initiatives of Milano Design Week 2021 will be divided between 5VIE productions, exhibitions and installations with guests and partners, meetings, talks and entertainment. It will be an edition that will have at its centre - more than just objects - the ideas that are at the basis of design.

Who can participate

5VIE is a community of international creatives, artists, designers, architects and craftsmen. The participation to Design Week is open to everyone without limits of age, previous experience or origin.
Our curatorial team selects applications on the basis of aesthetics, design and conceptual quality of the projects submitted.
This approach has allowed us over the years to introduce established but also emerging designers, whose careers have received an important boost thanks to the participation in 5VIE Design Week, and with whom we still collaborate for special projects, commissions and initiatives to disseminate the culture of design independently from the Fuorisalone week.

How to participate

Since 2020, the 5VIE district is both physical and digital: we offer the possibility to exhibit both in one of the district locations, in the historical centre of Milan, and virtually in the dedicated section on our platform.
To participate to the selection and to receive all the information about the terms and conditions, send an email to, attaching a presentation, a link or some images of the project you wish to exhibit.
Our curatorial team will evaluate each application individually and respond personally within a few days.
