On the occasion of the Milan Design Week 2017, Oikos presents White in the City, a project involving leading names in architecture – Giulio Cappellini, David Chipperfield, Daniel Libeskind, Patricia Urquiola, Stefano Boeri, Aires Mateus, Marco Piva and Zaha Hadid Architects – invited to give their own original interpretation of “white” in the courtyard of Honor (Cortile d’Onore), and in the arcades of the Pinacoteca di Brera.

The event in Milan is the result of a decades-old research focused on white color and on the various ways to represent it, whose outcome is a collection on 187 different shades of white.
“White in the city” is a project created by Claudio Balestri, founder and President of Oikos, developed to maintain an high profile of research at the Milan Design week.

In addition to the exhibition at the Pinacoteca di Brera, the event “White in the City” takes place in other venues across Milan: the exhibition “White on White” at Palazzo Cusani, “WITC White Ben-essere” at the church of San Carpoforo, and the exhibition “White Young Innovative” at Class Editori Space which showcases works by young designers.
