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.

So, I think the thing we have to change is to work a lot on communication, to explain to people what there is on the back – in terms of research, investment, technology – of a real design products. Owners Carol Bell and Tamara Scott-Anderson remodeled 1,000 feet of showroom into a minimalist Italian apartment to illustrate how an Italy-Old Pueblo mashup would look.

The rest of the show presents pieces from hundreds of different female designers throughout Italian history—navigating the installation as a river, or a timeline, that begins in the late nineteenth century and ends with bold works of the present day.
IDI is a family owned business that has been operating in the Boston Area for over 25 years with a wide experience in imported Italian contemporary furniture for any room in the house. At the moment we only have two copies of the prototype printed, plus the digital file available for free download on n-u-s website ( /IN-Pratica ). The book is in both Italian and English because we would like to share it as widely as possible. A man of many talents, Giò Ponti has made his mark on industrial design, furniture design, art and even publishing. Following plenty of requests and two years of design development later, the small brand launched in order to produce and sell the handcrafted products and simultaneously form a platform for promoting Italian craftsmanship. The show begins in the early 20th century with a weaving room, where women’s design skills were first applied to carpets, tapestries and lacework.
