Archincont(r)act to host 10 internationally renowned architecture firms at Cersaie | by Simone Ricci

With the second edition of Archincont(r)act, Cersaie 2021 confirms the show’s attention to the world of design and its relationship with the contract furnishing sector. Ten internationally renowned architecture firms will be hosted in an approximately 2,000 square metre area organised in cooperation with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Italian Trade Agency ITA. The purpose of this dedicated area is to promote networking between the firms responsible for developing architecture projects and the players who invest in architectural spaces that add value to cities in Italy and throughout the world.

The firms that have confirmed their presence at Cersaie 2021 are amongst the top Italian and European architecture practices: Archea Associati, Archilinea, Caberlon Caroppi Architetti Associati, Iosa Ghini Associati, Lombardini22, NOA* Network of Architecture, One Works, Pininfarina Architecture, Studio Bizzarro e Partners, THDP.

This space will host meetings between exhibitors and professional visitors to Cersaie and will offer a dedicated destination management service for international real estate operators. All guests in this space, centred around a Talks Area, will have a chance to admire the “Spa in Outdoor” concept created by the ten practices. This is a highly topical issue for contract furnishing companies that operate in the field of accommodation and hospitality facility renovation.
