Next January HOMI, the Milan Lifestyle Exhibition of Lifestyles, will be back. The opening of the eleventh edition will be in the name of house as never before! House is increasingly a central place in the life of everyone for the daily activities: from relaxation to study, to work and family. The ultimate goal of a house is to tell the personal story of those who live there by showing off the style they love, the objects they have collected over the years, the spaces and tools necessary for their favorite activities.
HOMI January 2019, scheduled from 25 to 28 January, as always at Fiera Milano (Rho), is a unique opportunity to discover and rediscover the thousand worlds of living. HOMI is not just a showcase of products but also a container and a forge of different ideas, projects, styles and cultures that meet and influence each other, creating a unique place where you can identify the trends that will characterize the next season.
The objects around us are nothing but “words” made real, phrases of a constantly changing story that winds between rooms and contexts of use. To tell all this, HOMI will offer, as for each edition, a broad and cross-sectional product offer thanks to the collaboration of established companies, young start-ups and designers who will occupy the spaces dedicated to experimentation (HOMI Sperimenta) and research (HOMI Creazioni).
