Elisava students and professors are taking part in Milan Design Week 2023, the world’s largest design event, which will take place between 18 and 23 April at the Milan fair. This space is designed for experimentation and dialogue between technology companies and designers.

Roger Cos, a student of the Degree in Design, has won the ITmakES Design award, in collaboration with INTERNE magazine. This award, under the slogan “adapt to change: a project in constant evolution”, seeks the creation of symbolic and multifunctional objects. Its winning proposal, with the name Nomad, is a stool devised for young people that seeks to recover a more relaxed lifestyle and invites them to socialise while encouraging (de)digitalisation. The idea for the project was inspired by the objects on the streets of Senegal, observed through Google Maps images. The material used to make the stool is recycled plastic and Ecopixel, a proposal against disposable objects.

Some of the school’s alumni also took part in the project. Maria Fernanda del Toro, from the Master in Design through New Materials, will present her creation Artisan Protest, a collection of vases made from polyaluminium, a material recovered from the packaging produced by the Tetra Pak company. María Songel and Francisco Mazo will be there too, alumnis of the Master in Furniture Design, with their brand Perillan Design, dedicated to furniture and lighting collections. Ricardo Camilleri and Cristina Tomás, who work in the product design studio Nutcreatives, will be at the fair from 19 to 23 April.

Elisava alumni Rocío Gambin’s outdoor furniture collection ‘Easy’.

Rocío Gambin, student of the Undergraduate Degree in Industrial Design Engineering, presents ‘Easy’ a collection of outdoor furniture consisting of a chair, a stool, a chair with arms and a side table. The collection has been designed for Diabla, a company of the Gandia Blasco group. The designs are dominated by the simplicity of Scandinavian style with the originality of Italian design, which has resulted in simple and adaptable pieces.

Professors Pablo Figuera and Álvaro Goula, with their GOFI design studio, have created mirrors for the Nomon firm, which will be presented exclusively in Milan. This is Unut, a collection of two mirrors that fuse minimalism with aesthetic luxury, as they have used materials such as marble and walnut. Professor Martín Azúa will also be at the Vibia stand, with a range of designer lamps, and rofessor José López Aguilar, founding partner of Oiko Design Office, will also take part in Milan design week at the stand of the furniture company Gandia Blasco.
