A BRIDGE BETWEEN MILAN AND OSAKA The festival has been conceived by Daimaru Matsuzakaya Department Stores to create a link between Osaka and Milan through design as a strategic, commercial and cultural lever. But also to celebrate Fuorisalone as the most important and representative moment for Milan, the world’s design capital.

The aim has been to establish a long-term partnership between Italy and Japan, developing formats for events and activities to be held in Japan, in collaboration with Studiolabo and "Local marketing" and "Design" are the two strategies Studiolabo has developed in its and Brera Design District projects. These same strategies have been the drivers for the development of the collaboration with Daimaru, together with the valuable support of Drill, a Japanese production agency and partner of the project.
