It connects you with Italy’s finest designers, enabling you to realise your project, study design at the most prestigious Italian Universities or to invest in entrepreneurial dreams of the most talented designers. The map will highlight all participating retail, wholesale and other professional establishments in the Metro Vancouver area that sell and/or promote Italian design brands. The design has also benefitted from previous work done to design the Absalom class, another success story. The exhibition celebrates women as the new creative force behind a form of design that is less high-handed, less authoritarian, more spontaneous and more dynamic. Kartell has always been a presence in the Salone del Mobile in Milan , and as one of the most important brands in the industry, Kartell now has 130 stores in the world, exporting mainly to the United States.
Graphic representation in the form of renderings, 3D printing, and the creation of small prototypes further assist their ability to design and visualise products in connection with space or location, and accurately evaluate their functional and ergonomic properties.
The exhibition runs through the of September, so there’s still a couple of days to see examples of amazing modern Italian design projects, created by some of the up-and-coming Italian industrial designers. Italian design became famous worldwide for its unique balance between aesthetics and functionality, expressed through many industrial products, as furniture, cars,motorbikes and household devices.
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.
While Italy’s dynastic family design set might have one foot in the past, it is a past whose legacy has very much helped to shape the present day and will continue to inform the future. Lo spettatore compie un viaggio attraverso la storia del design italiano, navigando in una sequenza d’immagini di oggetti e architetture simbolo di sei grandi maestri. This blending of classic Venetian glass manufacture with the modernist design sensibility of architect Carlo Scarpa represents the link between old and new. A better exchange rate, though, means Italian design will soon arrive in the Southwest, where it works quite nicely. With a focus on Italian craftsmanship, design and style the course explores how Italian manufacturing is exemplary in its identification and use of materials and techniques. The trend for reissuing back catalogue designs is one adopted by many Italian companies. The twenty-first century is increasingly showing a new-found intensity in these design skills.
