Tuttobene Celebrates Ten Years in Milan

It’s an occasion marked by the invitation of ten respected designers to this year’s Milan Furniture Fair. Tuttobene is celebrating its tenth anniversary.

Most visitors to Milan in April will be familiar with the exhibitions put on by Dutch organization Tuttobene. Established ten years ago by Victor le Noble and former boss, the idea for Tuttobene started as a space-share between Dutch and Belgium companies – hence Tutto Be(lgium) Ne(therlands).

It was in their second year (2005) that David Heldt joined forces with Le Noble to create an organization focussed on sustainable design. After government funding from the Netherlands, Tuttobene became a solely Dutch organization.

So what is it exactly Tuttobene does? To cut a long story short, connect designers to the market by hosting exhibitions and matching clients with designers that fit them best. A strong focus on young design talent, sustainability and the international market along with many years of experience have made the organization a successful presence in today’s market. 

Another former Tuttobene production is The Dots, our yearly guide to Dutch design in Milan, now an independent magazine under supervision of David Heldt. 

And let’s not forget the company’s presence in Milan. This year, ten experienced designers that worked with Tuttobene during the start of their career have been invited back to reflect on ten years of exhibiting in Milan. 

In addition to the ten established designers, no less than 17 new talents who will form the Tuttobene X this year, will see their work presented within the exhibition space at Zona Tortona. Also new this year is the Tuttobene Work/Shop where visitors will get the chance to view design from around the world, as well as taking something home. 

Jacob de Baan, Ineke Otten, Siba Sahabi, Floris Hovers and Alissia Melka-Teichroew are just a few of the many names visitors to Tuttobene will get to see this year. Together with partners Heineken, Designersblock and Coolhunting and named 'the Magazzini', this area promises to be buzzing.
