Architecture, design and philosophy of next-generation open-air hospitality in an exclusive Glamping Venue in Piazza del Cannone, with all the Italian players in the open-air accommodation sector .Crippaconcept, the most important Italian player in the design and production of Made in Italy mobile homes and lodge tents for next-generation open-air receptivity, returns to Milan Design Week 2023, from 17 to 23 April.

It will be present with many novelties that will populate the exhibition space inside the DDN HUB, at the Castello Sforzesco, Piazza del Cannone: a completely walkable architectural installation that reproduces glamping accommodation in the heart of Milan, to bring passers-by closer and let them discover what it means to have an excellent open-air holiday. In particular, on 20 April 2023, all the major Italian players in the open-air accommodation sector will gather here for an unmissable special event.

Crippaconcept’s presence is summed up in the formula ‘OPEN AIR DESIGN VISION’, which means revolutionary ideas and future visions, but also style, elegance and beauty. A project that synthesises the scientific and architectural research and concrete development of the company, introduced in recent years, combining the aesthetics and design of mobile living units with the minimisation of environmental impact. Created using natural, recycled and recyclable materials, designed with an ergonomic approach, with an overall vision that conceives mobile homes and lodge tents as an integral part of a broad landscape project with a low environmental impact, both in the internal equipment of the mobile home unit and in the context of the glamping village and tourist village, which are – in turn – increasingly adopting strategies of environmental sustainability and compensation to regenerate the resources consumed within them.

Four years after its ‘first time’, in 2019, when excellent open-air tourism was a little-known sector in Italy, outside the circle of enthusiasts, Crippaconcept is back with its mobile accommodation units, in a completely changed landscape: the last two years, in fact, thanks to the characteristics of the open-air holiday combined with the historical context, have been an unprecedented catalyst, attracting tourists of all ages and types (families, couples, singles, etc.). This return aims to recount how the architecture, design and values of this new generation of hospitality have evolved.

Sergio Redaelli, CEO Crippaconcept, anticipates the participation with a comment:“Our presence at Milan Design Week has an even more important value than 2019: we are returning after four very intense years, in which we have worked tirelessly to ensure that our customers are able to welcome all the tourists who have appreciated this form of tourism immersed in nature, attentive to privacy and personal space, rich in food and wine research, entertainment, sport, wellness and culture. We are at a new beginning, at a new life – like everyone else – never the same as before, to tell who we are, what the industry is today with the help of all the most important Italian and foreign experts: from the academic world to the major open-air tourism groups, from architects and landscape architects to local government representatives, to try and tell what the open-air system of the future is with the trends and data we have available. Where we were and where we are going, and where future developments are taking us or want to take us.”
