We are just a few days short of the Milan Design Week 2019. It is probably the premier design event in Europe if not in the whole world. There is certainly plenty to see at the Milan Design Week 2019. Centered around the 58th edition of the Salone del Mobile at the Rho Fiera Milano fairgrounds outside the city, the trade and lifestyle fair offers something for everyone. The trade show focuses on furniture, design, and this year with the bi-annual exhibition of Euroluce, particularly on light.

The organizers also look to the past honoring Leonardo da Vinci who’s 500th anniversary of his death is this year. Exhibitions especially curated about his work and life in Milan at the fairgrounds and also in the city are at iconic locations such as Conca dell’Incoronata canal. The evocative installation showcases a glimpse of the master’s brilliance and his studies of water.
