A future-proof exhibition

During Milan Design Week 2015, students and graduates from VIA School of Business, Technology and Creative Industries will give their take on future-proofed products in a large joint exhibition entitled 'Resilience - Future Resources, Future Living'


  • About the exhibition

    We live in a world with more and more social and environmental challenges. Under these circumstances, how can we as designers allow ourselves to keep designing and manufacturing new products?
    During the Milan Design Week 2015, the doors of the Camper building in Ventura Lambrate open up to an exhibition with an important focal point. At the exhibition, 100 students, graduates and teachers from VIA will showcase 50 projects which in different ways explore and seek to address some of the world’s future social and environmental challenges. With the theme 'Resilience - Future Resources, Future Living' the exhibition is about challenging the status quo and seeing opportunities in the social and environmental changes of our constantly changing world. The exhibition focuses on how we as humans can take responsibility for the issues of the world and how we can be flexible and adapt to new circumstances - whether it is about climatic conditions, lack of available resources or technological development.

  • Design, Technology and Business

    At the 700 square meter exhibition, you can experience design solutions from the fields of Design, Engineering, Construction, Film & Transmedia and Business.
    The exhibition showcases everything from furniture, fashion collections and assistive technology to urban gardening, graphic design, film and virtual reality.
    The wide range of subject areas distinguishes the exhibition from many of the other exhibiting schools at Milan Design Week, and the overall theme 'Resilience', ensures a coherent experience for the visitors. This theme has created the basis for a design exhibition that is both diverse and exhaustive.
    For the exhibitors from VIA, the concept of 'Resilience' is closely related to concepts such as adaptability, mobility and flexibility, which will be reflected in the exhibition design.
    During the exhibition, the Camper warehouse will evoke associations to urbanism and productive industry with partitions made of scaffolding and other creative materials.
