The Milan Breakfasts / Design Matters! from Premsela, Dutch Platform for Des on Vimeo.

Milan has been a great academic experience. It has not inspired me that much, but it has opened my eyes into the bussiness of design itself. Now I can understand why its evolution into design art... probably is because of the costumers and the people that supports design, at the end are the same ones that buy pieces of art...

My last visit was in a rush to the Design Academy
Eindovhen stand. It was vox popully that was one of the best things from Milan this year. Great space with a variety of projects that reflect the spirit of the College.

From here I want to express my dissapointment with my College: Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. It had only one official representative in Milan this year... Textile Futures that went on their own without any economic support. It is sad that the effort of students and profesors do not receive an offical recognition and official support from CSM.

It was really sad to see that half of the space of one of the Ventrura Lambrate buildings was ocupied by RCA, with projects that has been shown for many years and that still are fresh and innovative. We do have the same thing at CSM. Why our College does not promote the success of their students? Milan is a perfect opportunity to show to the world what is CSM about but what is more important to help students to start developing a professional network.

Little by little the dreammed of studying at Central Saint Martins is being broken by one dissapointment followed by other. Shame.
