The 2018 edition of Overture of the Master’s Degree Program in Interior and Spatial Design of the School of Design of the Politecnico di Milano was held at the evocative headquarters of the Livellara Cristallerie, in the Bovisa district, where space and time seem to dialogue between past, present and future. The event, now in its second edition, has paused to reflect on the current issues of interior design, involving a series of international personalities who, through workshops, video installations and lectio magistralis, have provided food for thought for the development of critical thinking around the project of contemporary and future spaces and interiors.

The second edition, entitled “Timespace – Next stop: STOP!”, Was an opportunity to examine the relationship between TEMPO and SPACE, with particular attention to the theme of “the lost interval” (Dorfles, 2006), which today defines, in its different exegesis, one of the major interpretative challenges for the design of spaces. The 21st century must necessarily compare the design of spatial forms, exercised through the tradition of design, with new forms of design of the time made of simultaneity and ubiquity and capable of contending and managing the different times of life.
