The Italian Design workshop is held in Florence, Italy where participants learn first-hand the world of Italian design. We have some products that were designed by Morrison or other designers 20 years ago that were at the beginning maybe too avant-garde, but we sell more now than in the past. An ideal mix of skills in which established professionals and young designers coexist coming from the most important Italian and international design schools. 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. Vespa and Lambretta are two important pieces of Italian history and they keep at be a people heart’s piece. 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.
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.
Mi interessa scovare luoghi, locali e oggetti che siano poco ordinari, così come designer emergenti, a cui dare voce grazie ad ITALIANBARK… partendo da Venezia , la città che mi è più vicina e della quale mi piace dare sempre punti di vista originali.
Fascism accomplished a remarkable propagandistic effort and young Italian rationalist architects put it to use, but their vanguard work was in contrast with a market modern objects demand lack; so, talking about rationalist furniture, it is correct to say that it was at a sperimental stage yet.
A better exchange rate, though, means Italian design will soon arrive in the Southwest, where it works quite nicely. The accessible, egalitarian design resulted in a huge cross section of Italian society driving a Fiat 500. Is the long experience that makes it possible to make designers and artists’ ideas concrete.
