Milano Design Week, Eurostands sets up and builds 10 installations at Salone del Mobile and FuoriSalone
Salone del Mobile and FuoriSalone 2022: Eurostands sets up 2000 sqm of installations
La Voce di Idra, INFLUENCE, LIGHT IS LIFE e 24 Ore con Boero: these are the projects presented at the Fuorisalone with the contribution of Eurostands, a leading company in the exhibition and temporary architecture sector that is setting up a total area of 2000 sqm. In addition, the Cambiago company boasts the production of numerous booths with the signatures of well known designers for the Salone del Mobile. “The flagship event of Made in Italy is back and we are proud to take part in the event that made Milan the world capital of Design”, says Maurizio Cozzani, CEO of Eurostands
The return of the Salone del Mobile to Fiera Milano from 6 to 12 June 2022
“Design is the intelligence made visible”: with these words the American writer Alina Wheeler defines a sector that returns to shine in the Bel Paese thanks to the Milan Design Week, which includes a series of events enriched by the presence of numerous works and art installations. Many of these are signed by Eurostands, company leader in the exhibition and temporary architecture sector that celebrates 60 years of the Salone del Mobile with the creation of 10 installations between FuoriSalone and Salone del Mobile for a total of 2 thousand square meters of built works. Eurostands built and set up a booth designed by Lineaquattro, a company of global importance in the field of modular kitchens, in collaboration with the architect and designer Antonio Lanzillo, winner of the Compasso d’oro in 2020. For the occasion, the company from Milano-Brianza took care of the engineering and construction of the stand of 190 square meters: specifically, it is an architectural shell with a modern and dynamic architecture. Eurostands and Lanzillo have also collaborated together for the construction of the booth of Venini, historic brand of artistic glass in Murano, replicating his most iconic work, the “Fazzoletto”. More specifically, a sensory experience is proposed in which the individual visitor enters a real tissue structure. To conclude, here are two more booths produced and set up by the company from Brianza: the first is an open space for Enrico Pellizzoni, in which the brand will exhibit the most representative products of its production line and the second, instead, it is a 48 sqm stand designed by Pininfarina for Gruppo Mondadori.
The expertise of Eurostands in the exhibition event INTERNI Design re-generation.
The first installation among these is “La Voce di Idra”, designed by the artist and product designer Elena Salmistraro for Guglielmi Rubinetterie, a fresh, colorful and playful work that is the source of life and regeneration. A portal-fountain located in the Courtyard of Honor of the University of Milan that is inspired by the mythological monster Hydra, a work “ancient” as the myth that represents but also “futuristic” as the new taps with voice control inserted in the installation. The installation, produced and set up by Eurostands, is almost 4 meters high and is entirely made of wood and iron and covered with multilayer panels, illuminated by the LEDVANCE’ strips and Globe SMART+ WiFi voice-controlled bulbs.
From regeneration and mythology we move on to “INFLUENCE”, an immersive installation, designed by COBALTO STUDIO for ROCA. The project itself was born with the idea of conveying to the visitor a sense of peace evoked by the waves of the Mediterranean Sea, which are reproduced through a highly innovative lighting system. The installation is 100% green, since it is entirely built with recyclable material. The journey to discover Milan Design Week continues with “LIGHT IS LIFE”, an iconic work of LEDVANCE designed by the studio CastagnaRavelli and created in collaboration with Eurostands. The artistic masterpiece, located in the Loggiato Est of the Cortile d’Onore of the University of Milan, is composed of five large silhouettes of two-dimensional eggs, symbols of life and renewal, inspired by the “Pala di Brera” by Piero della Francesca and which are surmounted by the inscription “LIFE IS”. The latter was assembled using LEDVANCE’s own smart human centric lighting LEDs.
The installation of 24 Hours for Boero at the Opificio 31 in via Tortona
To conclude, here is “24 Ore con Boero”: the exhibition interprets the homonymous art book elaborated by IED and is conceived by Nooro Milan Design Studio. It is divided into 6 moments of a special day lived through Italy and the Italian spirit from which 6 trendy palettes emerge, for a total of 48 chromatic proposals. An exploration that allows Boero, market leader in painting products in the building and architecture sector to illustrate variety, modernity, commitment and beauty: Eurostands and its professionals took care of the installation of the entire space at Opificio 31 in Via Tortona in Milano.
Marc Quinn presents “HISTORYNOW” in Venice, the exibition setup by Eurostands at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale
HISTORYNOW, the Marc Quinn's exhibition setup by Eurostands in Venice
Eurostands setups the exhibition of contemporary art “HISTORYNOW” signed by the London artist Marc Quinn at the National Archaeological Museum of Venice. Forty-eight new paintings and a smartphone shaped sculpture made out of Carrara marble will tell how society is changing through an incessant flow of content between current events and pop culture.
Smartphone screenshots witnessing the dramatic changes in the world and the way humans absorb, consume and share news. Issues such as human rights, racism, opposition to the symbols of power, environmental disasters and gender equality are emerging.
Eurostands’ work gives quality in terms of installation thanks to the finishes of each element of the exhibition and the detailed knowledge of the museum exhibition spaces.
HISTORYNOW is curated by Aindrea Emelife and Francesca Pini and will be open until 23 October 2022.
Homo Faber 2022 – Eurostands sets up the international exhibition dedicated to contemporary craftsmanship in Venice
Homo Faber 2022: Eurostands sets up the big cultural exhibition in Venice
Eurostands sets up the second consecutive edition of the Homo Faber Event, the great atelier of international craftsmanship in Venice. The savoir-faire of Eurostands is at the service of the big event with the creation of refined exhibition spaces for the 15 exhibitions scheduled until May 1 on the Island of San Giorgio. The second edition of the event will celebrate the living treasures of Europe and Japan in “an exceptional journey seen through the eyes of celebrated curators, architects and designers”.
The work will cover nearly 4,000 square metres in the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice
The Eurostands installations will enrich the already extraordinary 15 exhibitions followed by 22 curators and exceptional designers that will be set up on the 4000sqm exhibition area on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice. Halls such as the Longhena Library and the Gandini Pool, usually closed to the public, will open to visitors on this special occasion and will be the set to explore the intertwined cultural relationship between Europe and Japan.
A path made of galleries, cloisters and new spaces such as the former Gandini Swimming Pool emptied and renewed for the occasion by the Eurostands team. The designer and curator of this latest exhibition is the award-winning visual artist and director Robert Wilson who, more than an exhibition, created a real theatrical production.
A never-opened-before space: the setting up of the former Gandini Pool becomes a multisensory setting curated by Robert Wilson
Our team transformed the Gandini Swimming Pool into a suggestive exhibition for Homo Faber curated by Robert Wilson, award-winning visual artist and American director. An area of about 1000sqm never opened before that becomes a stage made of visions inspired by Japan and the director’s theatrical productions.
More than an exhibition. This setup is an experience divided into two moments, almost like a ritual and cathartic path. “A multisensory setting: dark access, with works and videos by Japanese choreographer Suzushi Hanayagi, will culminate in an immersion under a blue lighting environment between art objects and clothes” explains Michelangelo Foundation executive director Alberto Cavalli.
The Nautical School transformed into an atelier of contemporary craftsmanship
The Nautical School on the Island of San Giorgio is a space setup by Eurostands, framed by beautifully worked wall panels to specially made floor tiles, where visitors can admire the demonstrations of master craftsmen of some of the most important luxury houses in Europe. Among the participating brands: Cartier, CHANEL, Van Cleef & Arpels, which are joined by Vacheron Constantin, A. Lange & Söhne together with many other international realities.
The event is organized by the Michelangelo Foundation in partnership with the Giorgio Cini Foundation, the Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte Foundation, The Japan Foundation and the Fondation Bettencourt Schueller.

The magic of Christmas is back in Milan: the Piazza Duomo Xmas markets are setup and built by Eurostands
One of the most important events in the city has begun: Eurostands has taken care of the setup and building of 65 wooden chalets, house of Santa Claus included, for a total of 1200 square meters of preparation. The markets of Piazza Duomo come back to relieve the heart of Milan for the Christmas holidays after a year of stop. “We are used to set up in the center of Milan – says the CEO Maurizio Cozzani – After receiving the assignment from Confcommercio we immediately started to work”.
The set-up was made in a record time: the team of Eurostands worked non-stop from 26 to 30 November, for a total of 90 hours dedicated to the dressing up of the square that is a symbol of the Lombard capital. “We have been entrusted with a challenging but at the same time rewarding task: bringing the magic of Christmas back to Milan – says the CEO of Eurostands, Maurizio Cozzani – This year, there is so much desire to celebrate the most magical time of the year and for this reason we accepted with enthusiasm the assignment that Confcommercio gave us in setting up Piazza Duomo with its best dress: the Christmas markets. We know that the month of December is particularly awaited and felt for the Milanese people: for this reason, we immediately planned to operate in the expected time and in total safety. Special thanks go to the mayor of Milan, Beppe Sala, and the president of Confcommercio, Carlo Sangalli. This experience teaches us that things can be perfectly done”. This is not the first time that Eurostands has prepared an exhibition in the centre of Milan. Recently the Brianza-based company has built an open air installation for Motomorphosis, a non-profit project that is committed to spreading the theme of education and road safety. In June, Eurostands was the main partner of the event MIMO – Milano Monza Motor Show and built 120 wooden platforms for 63 car brands in Piazza Duomo, where were also installed and 2,000 meters of cables in just 3 days of work.

The in-house designed and built booth for Triumph Motorcycles
Strength and temper. This is the Triumph booth created by Eurostands for EICMA that has translated the communicative power of the British brand in every architectural element, from the display platforms to the shape of the LED lights of the suspended structures.
411 sqm that suggest a minimalist concept with a strong visual impact, designed by our in-house team of designers: starting from the study of the logo our team have created a “total black” exhibition space that generates an immersive experience in the world of Triumph.
Kymco: the booth is over 900 square meters
Essential and hi-tech. These are the main characteristics of the Kymco booth that brings to EICMA new products and great classics, and to do so has chosen Eurostands as a partner for the fair. 950 square meters of minimalistic design and technology that capture the visitor thanks to the large ledwall surfaces embracing the entire set-up.

Annarosa Racca, president of Federfarma Lombardia says: “It is a pleasure walking across to these stands and see all the innovations that are germinating in the world of pharmaceuticals. We can consider it a push towards the future. The reason we’re here today is because of the vaccine success, the demonstration of the importance of the pharmaceutical industry. We must invest in this sector, companies and institutions must commit themselves to this”.
From Brianza to Dubai, Eurostands brings its know-how to Expo 2020 Dubai
Eurostands, leader in the trade fair sector, transports its equipment to over 5 thousand kilometers far: there are 3 construction plans, 7 thematic areas and 2000 square meters of space. Eurostands is thus confirmed as a leading player in the field of universal exhibitions, reaching its seventh participation. “From Brianza to Dubai, despite a year of pandemic and the related difficulties, our commitment to the construction of the pavilions in the universal exhibitions continues over twenty years” says Maurizio Cozzani, CEO of Eurostands.
It has been a year of difficulties, missed trips and cancelled appointments, but the wait is over: even with 365 days of delay, the spotlight on Expo Dubai 2020 has finally been turned on and the doors of one of the most anticipated international events are open. The Universal Exhibition, which began on 1 October, will be staged at the “Dubai Experience Centre” until 31 March 2022. As always, more than just a fair, it is a real journey around the globe, a tour that passes through pavilions and creative installations, original and highly innovative.
192 countries are participating at the event, including Italy. In addition to the pavilion dedicated to it, the country emerges from an operational point of view thanks to the Angola pavilion created by Eurostands, Brianza-based company leader in the field of exhibition equipment and temporary architecture. For the company of Cambiago, this is not the first time at Expo: the debut was over 20 years ago and participation in the universal exhibitions numerous: from Lisbon to Shanghai, from Hanover to Aichi and Milan in 2015 for a total of 7 participations.
This time, Eurostands has taken care of the interior fitting of the Angola Pavilion: the theme chosen by Angola is “Oportunidades”, a highly evocative and auspicious leitmotiv after the difficulties crossed. What is more: the installation, thanks to the partnership with the Emirates company ABRA, is located in the Mobility District, which aims to embody the general mission of Dubai, stimulating innovation, opportunity and connectivity.
Culture and sustainability: we must face all the challenges that the market places us
“Taking part in an event as important as Expo Dubai 2020 with the Angola pavilion is a source of great pride and satisfaction for us – underlined Maurizio Cozzani, CEO of Eurostands – it perfectly embodies innovation and modernity, Eurostands still is a great presence in the universal exhibitions world: a path started by the founders in 1998 with the construction of the Italian pavilion in Lisbon, in Shanghai in 2021 and with the 4 national pavilion built and set up in Milan at Expo 2015.
The hope for the future is that the Expo will be the first of a new and long list of physical international events”. From the operational point of view, the professionals of Eurostands worked on 3 floors of construction, within an area of about 2000 square meters, also providing all the furnishings for offices, kitchen, restaurant and decorations.
The pavilion itself, for the most part made up of eco-sustainable materials such as wood, metal and ecological paints, is a real journey into the culture of Angola divided into 7 thematic areas. Each area is characterized by a particular type of realization. In addition, there is a restaurant designed for hosting the guests of the event. Among the different areas that characterize the structure, the area 04 is the most technological and innovative: the wall consists of 500 tiles with internal lighting. A playful, brilliant and highly symbolic setting, since this choice represents the future of Angola, a future in which new technologies must necessarily be the protagonists to illuminate the way.
The Brianza-based company realizes part of 4 installations of FuoriSalone 2021
MAD Architects' FREEDOM and Pura by Guglielmi Rubinetterie
Production, engineering, assembly, logistics
The first work of art is located in the Courtyard of Honor of the University of Milan and it’s designed by MAD Architects Studio. The installation represents a seagull, a symbol of rebirth, made out of 120 meters of profiles and metal tubes produced in Eurostands factories. The company was responsible for both construction and assembly of the work, which stands with its 6 meters high and 8 meters long on a platform of 600 kilos. Freedom, however, is not the only creation we took care of. Even Pura, indeed, is located at the same location: it is a 6 meters high totem, designed by the architect Alessandro Zambelli for Guglielmi, composed of different sheets and illuminated directly from the inside.
The restart according to Maurizio Cozzani, CEO of Eurostands
“Taking part in such an important event, showcasing our professionalism and efficiency, it’s for us a source of great pride” – says Maurizio Cozzani, CEO of Eurostands – “Every work has a precise meaning as well as the Fuorisalone itself in its entirety, because it reinforces the idea of rebirth and, above all, that of return to conviviality. Our professionals have put themselves to the test again and have worked tirelessly: this kind of events such as the Fuorisalone must be the cornerstones of an increasingly connected future capable of bringing people back to the center through live events and physical events”.
Audi City Lab e Doppia Firma
Eurostands participates in the set-up of the Audi laboratory at the milanese fashion district
The expertise of Eurostands also emerges in two other installations displayed in Milan: Doppia Firma and Audi City Lab. The first is an exhibition produced by Fondazioni Cologni and the Michelangelo Foundation related to the theme of the garden and outdoor, which returns for its fifth edition at Palazzo Morando (Milan) from 5 to 12 September. A union between the innovation of design and the tradition of the great masters of art. The creations of local artists and artisans rely on 12 exhibitors and 10 tubular bases, covered with sheet metal, designed by Studio Salaris.
The second project is Audi City Lab, a project of urban regeneration by Hines aiming to recover the historic Palazzo Pertusati, in Via della Spiga. The fully restored place will welcome stories and characters that embody the idea of progress. For this temporary hub, which will remain active for about a month (from 5 to 27 September), Eurostands laid 800sqm of suspended ceilings and platforms and 300sqm of drywall.
