‘Women In Italian Design’ At Salone Del Mobile 2016

Between Verona, Venice, Monselice and Torri del Benaco a great event recalls the English playwright and poet. In the meantime we are already working on some new furniture for next year’s Salone del Mobile, which includes: a new store design concept for a sunglasses retailer; a collection of electronic devices and accessories for the young Italian brand Tribe and some 3D-printed jewelry for Maison 203 The opportunity to work on different scales is the thing that we like the most, and gives us energy and curiosity.

The gentlemanly designer, 62, was one of the most influential figures in the industry at the tail end of the last century, and the Milan-based company founded by his father in 1946 was regarded as the most innovative and glamorous furniture brand in the world.italian design

Weaving A New History For “Women In Italian Design”

Let’s put it this way, if you are looking to spend $200 on a coffee table, go to Ikea and this is not the place for you. Tre anni fa ho creato il blog ITALIANBARK con l’idea di avere un posto virtuale – all’epoca, all’interno del mio sito professionale- in cui condividere ispirazioni e novità di design, ma anche di diffondere lo stile italiano dal punto di vista del design e dell’interior.

Other than the theoretical approach of the Bauhaus School in Germany or the marketing and profit-oriented design view of the Americans, the Italian design lasted long especially due to its experimenting propensity, the improvisation acquirement of small craft business and the old cultural tradition, which did not want to separate beauty from function.italian design

A Look At Italian Design

Such masters of the Fifties and Sixties as Aulenti, Castiglioni and Magistretti did a very good job indeed if we consider that during those years Italy became a crossroads for a new generation of creative minds on an international scale. The focus of the movement was the design of surfaces and colourful surfaces, the multi-functionality instead of mono -functionality and the communicative aspect of the products. The designer believes that consolidating Cappellini with other brands like Cassina and Alias from the Poltrona Frau group under Haworth’s ownership has given them all an advantage internationally. The demand for Italian designer jewelry is the result of high production standards along with the originality, quality and diversity. Women in Italian Design was on view at the Triennale Design Museum The exhibition catalog is available through the Triennale Book Shop.

Italian Design

This event offers both an introduction to, and a critical reading of, one of the most popular brands and concepts in the world. In the field of home interiors, modern design has found the ultimate means of materialising functionality, exemplified in Italan designers’ splendid sofas and famous armchairs or else in original room dividers. But the note about a misplaced letter ‘i’, from a Robert in Italy, got mistranslated by me. I’d mistakenly thought the email had come from the Dutch-born Italian designer Bob Noorda himself (1927-2010, which shows how much I still have to learn). Olivetti is an Italian manufacturer of typewriters, computers, tablets, smartphones, printers and other business products such as calculators and fax machines. Event is presented by the Theresa and Lawrence R. Inserra Chair in Italian and Italian American Studies, Department of Spanish and Italian, at Montclair State University.

Postwar Italian Design was influenced by shortages and cost considerations that encouraged Italian designers to think of design as a vehicle for social change. You get to see objects from design powerhouses like Patricia Urquiola and Gae Aulenti along with ambitious and sometimes eccentric works from relatively ignored Italian designers of the past—the presentation intentionally presents no hierarchy between the two groups, again for the purpose of highlighting ideas as opposed to names and singular authorship.

Work from big female names in design – such as the recently passed Zaha Hadid , Gae Aulenti, Gabriella Crespi, Patricia Urquiola and Elsa Peretti – are all represented and mix easily with now anonymous talents. As for the Triennale itself, the design museum is packed with programming associated with the Esposizione Internazionale, as well as single-themed exhibits of note. I think we have to move back to the origins of Italian design in …
