IDD 2022 | Italian Design Day – 6th Edition



IDD 2022 | Italian Design Day – 6th Edition

The best of Italian design takes centre stage in 100 countries on the theme “Re-Generation – Design and new technologies for a sustainable future”.

The Italian Cultural Institute celebrates this year the 6th edition of the Italian Design Day with a conference by designer Alex Terzariol at the ALBA-Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts (University of Balamand) in Beirut.

Started in 2017, it aims to promote the best in Italian furniture, architecture and design abroad. With hundreds of events going on all over the world, like exhibitions, presentations of objects and design projects, competitions and seminars which will involve some of the best known and most highly qualified Italian designers, architects, researchers, entrepreneurs and specialized journalists in highlighting the value of Italian creativity.

The theme chosen for this year's edition highlights one of the current challenges that design is facing: promoting a transition of lifestyles that combines functionality and well-being with sustainability and reduced environmental impact, re-generating, – in ideas and in practice – objects and spaces. Today, reusing, mending, renewing and recycling existing materials and products is a parallel need with the development of new ones. The goal is to conceive new products and new processes based on sustainable technologies based on the concept of circular economy.

The Italian Design Day 2022 has been promoted and organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation with the contribution of the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture within the context of the beIT and Vivere all'Italiana initiatives.

The ADI Compasso d'Oro Collection Foundation, ADI Association for Industrial Design, ITA ICE Italian Trade Agency, Triennale di Milano, Salone del Mobile Milano, FederlegnoArredo and Altagamma have all worked together in the general organization and communication.
