Oriental Design Week was born in Milan thanks to the interest and curiosity that the people feel more and more for the design and art offering by East.

This FuoriSalone is a novelty for its content, oriental and "to the east", and for its format, more democratic because it gives opportunity at whom has not it.

It aims to create a bridge between East and West, between City and City, between fuorisalone and fuorisalone proposing design, research, experimentation, innovation and creativity.

It not only lasts 6 days of Milan Design Week but lasts throughout the year in order to create cultural and economic opportunities.

The district that gave birth to the event, to "the bridge", is Sarpi, a historic district of Milan of great charm but Oriental Design Week is dynamic, always in moving looking for new places to create other bridges.

A careful organization, a good selection of exhibitors, based on criteria of creative quality, innovative and content makes Sarpi Bridge - Oriental Design Week one of the most interesting exhibition of design, for its special identity, diversity and internationality.



Fuorisalone Sarpi Bridge is an association founded by the collective cultural Tomato Catch Up di Torino with Studio Akka of Milan.

It is proposed as promoter and organizer of this new Fuorisalone that is the first Oriental Design Week  in Italy and in Europe.
