In a September which will see Milan stepping into the international limelight first for beauty and design with the Salone del Mobile event, and then for climate change with the COP26 preparatory meeting, we will be courting attention from September 5–10 at the “SUSTAINABILITY PAINTS THE WORLD” event on both these accounts because beauty and sustainability are becoming more and more inextricably linked.
In the light of our ongoing commitment to protecting the environment and our efforts to develop sustainable products, organizing an event around this topic was a foregone conclusion.
Alongside the ICA Group, the creators and promoters of the event are One Works, one of the biggest Italian architectural firms operating on the international scene, and Plinio il Giovane, an iconic firm on the Milanese design landscape which has been making environmentally-friendly wooden furniture since 1975. Together with these epic partners, we will be launching a series of unmissable encounters and installations at the headquarters of One Works in Via Sciesa 3 and inaugurating our first Milanese showroom.
The event will enable the public to encounter, understand and gauge the extent to which sustainability can, and increasingly needs to be, the underlying product and process philosophy for any project. It will be structured with an original program of live and virtual talks focused on the UN Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
