An eco-design itinerary is what is proposed this year in the sixteenth edition of Green Island, during the Milano Design Week (3-9 April 2017). The central focus is the Isola Neighbourhood, an area undergoing major cultural and urban expansion, presented in three stages, investigating the 'plant sculptures' by the artist Emilia Faro. The starting point is Garibaldi Train Station with a project staged in the shop windows of Tiger; then at the famous Algranti Lab, where the recycled materials are a 'must-have' for lovers of skilfully created wooden objects; right up to the heart of the event at the RivaViva eco-furnishing studio, which will feature a new installation recreating a natural botanic garden, designed especially for the occasion.
In fact, BOTANIK is the name given to the artistic project proposed by Claudia Zanfi, the real 'green soul' behind the Milano Design Week in Isola District, who states: 'ever since its pioneering launch in 2001, the GREEN ISLAND project has set out to bring the citizen back to a dimension of greater harmony between artificial and natural spaces; it aims to provide a moment of reflection and planning on urgent themes such as sustainability, urban green spaces and new landscapes.' GREEN ISLAND was the first project to bring design to the streets of the Isola Neighbourhood, creating a network of over 100 local entities for the valorisation of artistic and crafts workshops, introducing the DID-Distretto Isola Design: a unique element for the valorisation of the territory.
