Blue Note Milano, the historic jazz club of via Borsieri for the first time in its history will participate in the Milan Design Week, animating with aperitifs and concerts the brand-new Isola Design District between 17 and 22 April. The venue is ready to open the doors to the customers of Fuorisalone with the innovative project “Live jazz and live design”, thanks to which the audience in the room will be able to touch and experience the pieces hosted.

Six brands will exhibit their artworks in the Milanese temple of jazz.
Those who will want to relax sipping a drink from 7.30pm to 9pm will have at their disposal the reading space of La Feltrinelli, who will set up its Feltrinelli Notes – with a clear reference to the name of the jazz club – in which books, notebooks, and suggestions related to the history of the brand will be available for the audience.
Feltrinelli Notes and the bar counter will be illuminated by Blackout, leading company in the lighting sector for over 40 years that offers cutting-edge products and systems designed to create particular scenographic effects.
The audience in the room will be able to sit and dine on chairs and tables handmade by Emmten, a company that produces unique, tailor-made furniture.
The cool atmosphere of the Design Week will be completed by the creations of OKI, a global brand specialised in professional printing solutions, created using innovative technology, which allows images to be hot stamped to fabrics, and by the beautiful dress by NVK Daydoll, the fashion collection by Natasha Calandrino Van Kleef, cosmopolitan designer and architect, created with natural fabric and exposed on one of the very precious models by Hans Boodt Mannequins, a company that manufactures mannequins cared for in every detail and customised according to the needs of each brand.
To frame the whole, a newly installed permanent exhibition by the artist Marco Lodola, who specifically designed for the Blue Note a series of sculptures arranged inside and outside the venue.

“We are very pleased with the path that Blue Note Milano is taking on the road to innovation,” said Andrea De Micheli and Luca Oddo, respectively CEO and President of Casta Diva Group, owner of Blue Note Milano, “Milano Design Week is an excellent opportunity to convey the idea that the Blue Note is not just jazz, but an extraordinary container of stories and people who every day bring together a unique product in the world.”
