From the 19th to the 25th of May was taking place the « D’Days »: a full week dedicates to Design. For the thirteenth edition, more than a hundred exhibitions provide a showcase for designers who present the progress of creation around a common theme :« Movement ». So I started a marathon to see so many things as possible. Some would say that there was not much new stuff compared to Milan but I was pleasantly surprised by the spirit that emanated from this edition. It was much more open to the general public through museums and there was a lot of workshops in the « Fablab » trend.
