Marbella Design & Art 2022 will be one of the most important design and interior design exhibitions in Europe this year.
The event, which takes place between November 3 – 13 at the Adolfo Suárez Conference Center in Marbella, will uniquely combine design and interior design with contemporary art.
At the presentation held this week at the Marbella Club Hotel, Alejandro Zaia, Marbella Design & Art general director, explained why the combination had been repeated. “Given the success it had last year, we have repeated the novel formula of mixing design with art to generate collaborations between both fields. And the truth is that we are very satisfied with the response.
“In addition, a spectacular parallel programme of activities has been prepared for the participants, to turn Marbella Design & Art into a comprehensive experience
More than 40 interior designers and more than 150 brands have confirmed their participation in Marbella Design & Art, which this year celebrates its fifth edition
The fair once again features Sergio Sánchez and David Jiménez as creative directors. Founders of Deseesedesign, they have designed two special projects: Medusa, the restaurant area of the fair, and a very special terrace where the Indian firm GM Modular will be the protagonist.
Another novelty with respect to previous editions is that the hall of the pavilion will be sponsored and managed by the Design Institute of Spain and designed by the Somos2Studio studio, with Eva Jurado and María Díaz Leguina. This will be a multifunctional area dedicated to professional networking and coworking between the participants, as well as an auditorium.
Marbella Design & Art will have an art section curated by the Brazilian-British curator Ana Araújo, who, based on concepts inherited from femininity, will present a selection of works that focus on the aesthetics of fascination. “We believe that art should be something that we find not only in museums, but that we can enjoy daily. For this reason, at Marbella Design & Art many of the works will be easy to integrate into the spaces in which we live, work and have fun”, affirms the curator. Likewise, many of the interior designers will also be accompanied by artists such as Antonio Quiros, Eva Bekier, Bert Goeman, Pablo Redondo, Andreas Luethi, Stefan Postol and with a project of Ukrainian artists organizsd by the Cipressi Gallery in Kyiv.
