Edison is the Main Partner of the Brera Design District, because - as Cristina Parenti argues - "international excellence in design and development, it is the ideal place to open a discussion about the key role that energy plays in enabling and concretely implementing the transformation and evolution of our lifestyles and the related services that meet the contemporary needs of connection, sharing and socialization".
During Design Week, visitors will find an oasis of calm thanks to the Smart Stations made available by Edison: smart benches with free wifi connection, where sit and have a rest and recharge devices with the renewable energy of photovoltaic panels. A way to regenerate and recharge batteries.
The units will be located in Largo la Foppa alongside one of the Brera Design Week info points. Cristina Parenti explains the role of Edison at Fuorisalone: "Edison promotes and takes part in the building of a sustainable future by providing skills, technologies and people who have been producing and distributing energy across the country for over 130 years. As international excellence for design and project development, Fuorisalone is the perfect place to open a space for discussion on the key role that energy plays in practically triggering and implementing a change and evolution in our lifestyles and the related services that meet the current need for connection, sharing and socialization".
Moreover, since its beginnings, Edison has had a distinctive expertise and role in these fields, since 1930, with the construction of the Casa Elettrica (Electric House) conceived by Group 7 and Piero Bottoni. Always attentive to the world of contemporary design and living, Edison has built many buildings, plants and structures in over 130 years of activity. Among the designers who have collaborated with companies of the Group are: Piero Bottoni, Luigi Figini, Guido Frette, Adalberto Libera, Riccardo Morandi, Pier Luigi Nervi, Piero Portaluppi, Gino Pollini, Gio Ponti.
