The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada-West, in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Vancouver, is pleased to present an initiative: Italian Design in Vancouver”. While it takes about 10 to 12 weeks for something to arrive from America’s furniture hub of North Carolina, it might take around 14 weeks for Italian-made pieces. Modern Italian interior design is different from the houses of the 18th and 19th centuries, but it has a few things in common with its historical counterpart: the love of open, well-lighted, airy spaces. The Italian version features large, wall graphics rather than a small, repeating pattern, and it looks very textural. In addition to the bodywork, the design included handlebar-mounted controls, forced air cooling, wheels of small diameter, and a tall central section that had to be straddled. Linda would be my choice, but I could quickly conclude that all of the designers on this site had so much to offer and it would be pretty easy for anyone to find one that fits their budget and taste. If we had the time, we’d take a contemporary interior design tour around the globe.
Fashion Week has just wrapped up in New York City, with the new lines for Spring and Summer 2013 from both new and established designers being revealed. When styles were developed in the 1920s (like the ones of the Bauhaus), design in Italy became famous at the end of the 40s. In the context of Corporate Identity Programmes the names of Designers and companies became more important.
It is only logical then that Italian designers excel in the area of furniture design and home furnishings. Most Italian interior designers today, whether fans of classic designs or of edgy chic, design living spaces with lots of light and air in mind. But the two that will really prompt designers and decorators to queue are Sandycombe Lodge and Sir John Soane’s home, both of which are currently being restored to their former glory. So, I started by reviewing their design questionnaire and following their advise to give them a sense of your desires for designing your dream space. The italian navy has released some different, contradictory figures for the displacement, which consequently isn’t identifiable with certainty. Simply defined, sustainable furniture and furnishings, also known as Eco Furniture is constructing furniture using materials which are recycled or re-purposed such as wood, metals and glass. Italy enjoyed a golden age of design and manufacturing from the 1950s to the 1970s.
With a fairly clear picture of what I would want as a living room, I visited the numerous designers pages and reviewed examples of their finished work and found a designer that design style really sums up my taste and would love to have design a living space for our abode.
Sixty-seven percent of attendees were international, a fact that is no doubt appreciated by Italy’s noble design houses. He advocated that many companies are stuck in a traditional mindset and promote this standardised ‘Made in Italy’ design. Designer Monica Graffeo is unique in that she got her start studying the classics, Latin, Greek, and mathematics. Italian Design is a young company created by young Italians with the goal of making the essence of Italian-made products known around the world. Already a mainstay in desert dwellings, Italian-made Gamma furniture is the ultimate upgrade. It is surprising that in the mid-1970s a second wave of Radical Design arose which saw the creation of the groups Alchimia (founded 1976) and Memphis (founded 1981). 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.
