The Italian Design Futures Capsule - designed by Stefano Boeri Interiors
Stefano Boeri Interiors, will again collaborate with FIND to design a unique area entitled “The Italian Design Future Capsule”. The exhibition layout conceived by Stefano Boeri Interiors develops around a 'square’ that represents a meeting place dedicated to the exchange and sharing of visions and projects, generated by the intersection of two large orthogonal "public boulevards." Inspired by the historic gateways of Italian cities, the entrances to "The Italian Design Futures Capsule" are identified by large monumental green portals that help visitors orient themselves within the pavilion.
The central square is the beating heart of the entire set-up, where visitors converge to participate in formative moments of listening and dialogue, provided by the Global Summit, curated by Yoko Choy, which will bring together opinion leaders to discuss the developments that are driving the design industry today. The traveling exhibition "Italia Geniale" dedicated to enhancing the heritage of trademarks and patents and telling the story of Italian design - organised by the Embassy of Italy in Singapore, with the support of the Italian Trade Agency, and in collaboration with ADI (Association for Industrial Design) - will be hosted along the main boulevard.

About Stefano Boeri
Some of Stefano Boeri’s past works:
The position of ITA as 1st EU exporter to Singapore in the furniture sector, with an export value of 59,8mln di Euro in 2022, outlines the importance of investing in this country and the strong interest in the "Made in Italy" design from local counterparts.
Singapore is an experiment of architecture and urbanism, therefore the high quality and innovation of our Italian products are the perfect solutions to the needs of the Country.
Also, the presence of over 30 Italian companies at FIND - Design Fair Asia 2023 is a sign of the importance of Singapore as an ideal hub for Italian producers and designers for the whole region.
