Presented by DDN in collaboration with Re.rurban, Killer Kiccen and Unconventional, INHABITS let visitors discover the latest technology, learn about new materials and meet designers and companies. The ‘living units’ are at the center of the exhibition: easy to build and transport, they offer innovations in terms of materials, assembly techniques, technologies for home automation, and energy efficiency.
Made by Italian and international companies, they have been designed to meet different needs: from residential to contract, from service areas to residential emergencies.
The units are joined by ‘satellite’ spaces, where it be possible to see closely products, fittings, technologies and solutions related to the domestic and urban environment.
