On the occasion of the Salone del Mobile, Prada Frames returns: the annual multidisciplinary symposium designed with the aim of exploring the complex relationship between the natural environment and design.

The 2024 edition of Prada Frames Being Home was born from a reflection on the private environment understood as a frame of reference within which to face the challenges of contemporaneity. The living space is no longer just a source of comfort but a true refuge, an infrastructure of services and a dynamic space capable of continuously evolving and, historically, shaping the socioeconomic norms on which communities are based.

The symposium, curated by the design and research studio Formafantasma, sees the contribution of numerous scholars and professionals from different research fields, including Paola Antonelli, Brigitte Baptiste, Kate Crawford, Jack Halberstam, OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Anna Puigjaner , Alice Rawsthorn, Isabella Rossellini and Françoise Vergès.

Hosting the rich program of meetings, from Sunday 14th to Tuesday 16th April, is the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum in via Gesù 5 in Milan which was a home until 1974. A unique example of stratification of personal and artistic history and among the first great expressions of Milanese design, the 19th century neo-Renaissance building, which inside houses fifteenth-sixteenth century artifacts and furniture, opens up to intimate thematic conversations and conferences that take place simultaneously in its environments, creating an ideal, uninterrupted exchange between the living room, bedroom, dining room, bathroom and library.


Prada Frames Being Home is free to enter, subject to availability, upon registration on starting from April 9th.
