Sport and design have always maintained a symbiotic relationship, each nurturing the other to reach new heights. This synergy between aesthetics and performance lies at the heart of the MATCH exhibition.

Design Serving Athletic Performance In a world where sports competition reaches unprecedented levels of excellence, mere physical performance is no longer sufficient.
