I’m an Italian Architect and interior designer, working on site and online on residential and commercial projects, and passionated about graphic design, web and photography. 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.
The exhibition puts forth that female designers contributed to this industry-wide attitude shift. By opening the exhibition with a weaving installation, the curators have created a visual representation of the complex position women have occupied in Italian design—the tension between craft and design, the individual and collaborative creation. Another Italian female, Irene Bacchi, created the cool graphics for the catalog and logo. Jose Escobar, of Five Star Painting, applies plaster to a recreation of an Italian apartment at Contents Interiors.
Often described as design royalty”, Moroso counts Urquiola and fashion doyenne Miuccia Prada as her close friends, and is one of the visionary women at the helm of contemporary design. Seamlessly incorporating classical ideas with fresh global influences, J&V Italian Design entices designers and design aficionados alike. An Italian phenomenon in the late 1960s was that the gap between industrial production and experimental alternative designs was associated with some designers and manufacturers. We decided to design and produce, together with the Nike team, tailored textures that were applied as lampshades.
However, the brand fell from grace in the early 2000s amid talk of financial difficulties, and it was bought in 2004 by Italian furniture group Poltrona Frau , at the time steered by investment firm Charme. Industry insiders say Moroso has an unerring instinct for not just reading the zeitgeist but creating it. Her early embrace of the handcrafted and cross-cultural aesthetic that has since gripped the design world was prophetic. Sometimes we people of design think that people who don’t understand design products or who buy copies, they understand nothing. Passion for glass and for its feature pushes our company to overcome the boundaries of crystal design furniture. Is the long experience that makes it possible to make designers and artists’ ideas concrete.
Our workers’ special skills are supported by the new technologies, so that extravagant and modern design ideas can be realized. When the industry was open for the new design culture of the young designers, the wind was taken out of there sails. And really thanks to Haworth, we are growing a lot in the contract market, because today it is easier to sell design products for contract – for hospitality and for offices – more than for residential. The Memphis Group was an Italian design and architecture group founded in Milan by Ettore Sottsass in 1981 that designed Postmodern furniture, fabrics, ceramics, glass and metal objects from 1981 to 1987.
