EDIDA 2009 took place in the Hangar Bicocca, former industrial location and cult place of contemporary art. The specific characteristic of the Hangar Bicocca is to present exhibitions in relation with space and it is a place of experimentations.
The Award ceremony traditionally takes place on Thursday during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, the world’s leading furniture fair. Generally the event is held in a different location of the city every year. It gathers the editors-in-chief of ELLE DECORATION editions worldwide who reward the winners of the year in the presence of major actors of the international design community.
