ove Design is about to start in a handful of days. Love Design is the biennial charity exhibition supported by AIRC (the Italian society for cancer research) and ADI (the Italian association for industrial design), set up to raise funds for cancer research.

A definite must-see for all design lovers (and not just them), who from Friday the 20th to Sunday the 22nd October 2017 at the Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan, will have the opportunity to purchase furniture and accessories by top designer brands.

Just like in past editions, the main aim of Love Design is raise as much money as possibly for cancer research. We are ready to answer to Marta Ferri’s call. The Milanese designer Marta Ferri will be the event’s spokeswoman, which is on precisely during breast cancer awareness month (represented by the pink ribbon): in fact, AIRC promoted a rich calander of events during the month of October.

Since its first edition in 2003, Love Design has sold over eighteen thousand different design icons to over 150 different firms, raising over 2 million Euros for cancer research. A great reason to take part in this event, which in 2017 come out with a special raffle: the final draw will be on the 22nd of October and there a luxury prized to be won like the Fiat 500, a Piaggio Vespa, holidays on the Lake Garda, Damiani jewellery and a bag by Salvatore Ferragamo.
