We are happy to support ‘OFFICE GOALS’, a conversation between the super curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and Valerio Olgiati, the award-winning Swiss architect who has reached cult status internationally with radical, conceptually rigorous projects.
The event is presented by Kaleidoscope Magazine at Spazio Maiocchi in Milan within the framework of Salone del Mobile.Milano. It will explore contemporary methodologies of working, which expands on the trend report of the same title featured in the magazine’s latest issue.
After the talk, and artist/DJ Juliana Huxtable will perform with a set inspired by office soundscapes.
Spazio Maiocchi, via Achille Maiocchi 7, Milan
This event is in partnership with Istituto Svizzero.
