Founded by Politecnico di Milano, POLI.design has access to the deep reservoir of multidisciplinary skills in the first and most important technical university in Italy. Together with the School of Design and the Department of Design, we form the Politecnico di Milano Design System, which is a pool of resources, skills, facilities, and laboratories that is among the best in the world.
We are based in the city of Milan, a world-renowned center of excellence for design. The city offers numerous permanent structures, cultural institutions, fairs and showrooms, publishing industry, schools, displays, exhibitions, and events that contribute to creating a culturally lively and dynamic environment that can enrich professional and training courses, providing a deeper experience of design in all its modern forms, from the perspective of constant innovation.
Relations with the professional sphere are endorsed by the presence of three of the most important associations of design professionals on the board of POLI.design: ADI Association for the Industrial Design, AIPi Italian Association of Interior Designers, and IAP Italian Association of Visual Communication Design.
