Thanks to our Wi-Fi partners SimpleSpot (see our video-interview, in Italian, to one of the founders, who visited us on the first day of Fuorisalone) we were able to offer a free, fast and reliable connection to the Internet to all the guests who stepped in our coworking place in the Lambretto premises. As a […]

Intervista al nostro Wi-Fi partner: Martino Massalini di SimpleSpot.

Se c’è un protagonista dell’esperienza “Coworking Fuorisalone”, è lui: il Wi-Fi. I visitatori del Fuorisalone sono in gran parte stranieri, ed alcuni ci hanno confidato il disagio provato nel non aver visto (online prima di partire, e poi dal vivo, una volta arrivati) nessuna rete di Wi-Fi disponibile in Italia. Nè aeroporto, né zone pubbliche, […]

From coworking to megaparty, and back.

Last night the premises of our Coworking Fuorisalone at the Lambretto (Ventura Lambrate design district) have hosted a super-party, with deejay set and an amazing, international crowd, coming from all over the city to celebrate the new Fruit of the Forest design magazine. It was quite a storm that took away our quiet, efficient, Wi-Fi […]

- 1 giorno al Coworking Fuorisalone.

La giornata è stata dominata dall’ansia. Mentre in tutto il quartiere Ventura Lambrate fervono i preparativi per la grande kermesse, in Monkey Business è tutto un infilare lavori per i clienti, telefonate, contatti, impostazione di poster e volantini, spostare coworker e tavoli, gestire le pulizie, organizzare gli spazi, ritirare il materiale stampato (in 4 ore), […]
