A theme for every edition

Brera Design District established the Design Lessons Award in 2014 and for each edition has identified a theme to tell and deepen through successful case histories.
The theme is the output of a critical reflection carried out during the Design Days in October - a fundamental moment for defining new trends and scenarios - and, over the time, has become a reference point for companies and partners.

Too much design, little design
A reflection on the world of design. Too much production without thinking about quality and the ability to develop solutions according to a new design culture.
