The Platform

A curated selection of design in Venice.

The Platform brings to the international audience of the Venice Design Biennial the best stories about people, places, and practices around design culture in Venice.

The city and its territory host a surprisingly multi-faceted community of designers, makers, architects, and creative people who share an innovative approach, rooted in traditional craftsmanship and refined aesthetics.

The Platform's goal is to foster new connections and ideas.
