SF Design Week Opening Night: "Question Everything"



Celebrating its tin and aluminum anniversary, San Francisco Design Week returns to the Bay Area to promote growth and ideas that have made this region such an innovation powerhouse. With over 200 events, the week-long program includes more than 60 partners across numerous categories, including architecture, interior design, graphic design, user interface design, fashion design, culinary arts and many more. Many of the big players are coming out, too: Pixar, Airbnb, IDEO, and Snøhetta — the firm that designed the new SFMOMA — among others. Events are set to be held in spaces throughout Silicon Valley and San Francisco, including the new Tartine Manufactory — and yes, there will be baked goods.

It all starts this Wednesday, however, at Pier 27 when the Consul General of Italy kicks-off the opening night reception with a prosecco toast and remarks.. Here guests will find Casa Castiglioni, an international exhibit from Milan, Italy that will be presented in the United States for the first time. Casa Castiglioni explores the work of Achille Castiglioni, one of the greatest industrial designers of the 20th century. The exhibit showcases nearly 60 years of the Italian designer's historic work. Additionally, there will be a custom experiential installation by Airbnb inspired by this years theme, "Question Everything". VIP ticket holders get access to a VIP bar, appetizers and lounge. General admission is cash bar only — plan accordingly.

If You Go:

When: Wednesday, June 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Where: Pier 27
Cost: $25-150
