A curated design objects for sale

Alcova, one of the world’s leading platforms for innovative design, is pleased to announce the launch of Alcova Design Shop, a new online store featuring the best of Alcova.

In line with its commitment to promoting groundbreaking design, Alcova’s online store will present a carefully selected range of works from established, experimental and emerging makers from around the world. Drawing on its vast network of exhibitors who over the past five years have transformed Alcova into one of the most visited events of the Milan Fuorisalone, Alcova Design Shop will be a curated platform, active throughout the year, that explores future-oriented design that challenges the canons, embraces current cultural discourse in design, and explores the ways in which our collective thinking is evolving around themes such as new aesthetics, new materials, gender, social justice and the environment.
