The Secret Place of Design


A place for the project

The exclusive district of Brera, meeting point of the design excellence, hosts an exceptional project, born from the synergy of four Italian brands - Nodus, Exto, Matм and Tao – united by their passion for quality and research.

In the heart of the city, in the main cloister of San Simpliciano, exceptionally open to the public like a treasure coffer during the Design Week, tradition entwines with Made in Italy innovation, creating a space for inspiration at 360°.

This asset is made by: Nodus, at its tenth collection of handmade high quality carpets, designed by the greatest creative minds; Exto, debuting with a collection of furnishings born from strong italian expertise combined with creativity of the highest level; Matм, linear and understated handcrafted luxury design, whose research is based on ancestral materials linked to nature; Tao, applying strong technological contents and formal rigor to technical curtains and prestigious outdoor systems, roofing, furnishings and kitchen units.

Private Cocktail: 16th April, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
