3M Co. is showing off its creative side at Milan Design Week, the annual event that kicked off Tuesday and spotlights some of the world's top architects and designers. Milan Design Week typically features installations at the offices of Vogue Italia and the famous Salon del Mobile furniture fair, but this year there's a presence from big-name American corporations. Google Design Studio is also running an exhibition on neuroaesthetics, which is the study of why the brain finds certain things beautiful or pleasing.
