Pro Helvetia is pleased to offer young Swiss designers the opportunity to participate in a major event for the design branch: the Milan Design Week (new dates: 5-10 September 2021).

For the first time, Pro Helvetia is excited to collaborate with Alcova, a platform for independent design which activates forgotten locations of historical significance in and around Milan, temporarily recasting them as venues for exhibition and events. After two successful editions visited by more than 100,000, Alcova is preparing for an exciting new edition in a unique location in 2021, just a few steps away from the Inganni metro station. Located in three historical buildings of a former military hospital, immersed in a luxuriant park, Alcova will host over 50 exhibitors including the Design Switzerland exhibition.

The participating designers were selected through a call for participation and will be announced soon.
