são paulo's annual design weekend is returns aug 14-17, and the city is abuzz with interesting events for professionals and design aficionados alike. one of the many presentations is design house, an experimental platform that showcases contemporary design from both brazil and abroad. for this year, creative agency and event organizer diald has decided to focus its gaze exclusively on homegrown talent, presented at a striking 1980s mansion by brazilian architect ruy ohtake in the city's vila madalena neighbourhood. themed multi-utility, the design house showcase features 10 leading designers and design studios who all belong to brazil's new generation of creatives. they will create work on the premises as if being in a residency, not only allowing visitors to view their creative process and production, but also establishing a cross-pollination of sorts between the designers and their respective disciplines. the list of participants includes andrea bandoni, sao arquitetura, paulo goldstein, mariana ramos + ricardo innecco and estúdio ninho. local practice noono has been commissioned to design an site-specific installation at the forefront of the house, conceptualized with this year's theme in mind. location: rua professor nova gomes 228 [vila madalena].
