Living Italian Design

In addition to furniture design, Italy has also set trends for industrial design. 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.italian designitalian design

A Brief History Of Italian Industrial Design

Our work extended in years, starting from innovative and elegant tables like ‘RAGNO’ to ‘GHOST’, Cini Boeri’s vanguard armchair; we are in a continuous evolution, ready to see what glass has to offer, basing also on the developing technologies. Instruments for Italian design promotion were the Compasso d’oro prize, exhibitions like the Triennale and the new Salone del Mobile in Milan and the big objects-manifests like Italian ocean liner laying up for United States.

Italian Design In The Shop

The Italian Design workshop is held in Florence, Italy where participants learn first-hand the world of Italian design. 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. A man of many talents, Giò Ponti has made his mark on industrial design, furniture design, art and even publishing.

The style was extremely provokative and kitsch and it became in a few time the guiding style of the new Italian design.

Italian Design

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. In addition to all this there is the quality of the Italian design, that makes our furniture a must-have. Jose Escobar, of Five Star Painting, applies plaster to a recreation of an Italian apartment at Contents Interiors. Massimo and Lella Vignelli made great success in the United States as representatives of the purer Italian design. The Isetta epitomises the element of fun that is so often prominent in Italian design. Many people at the time were thinking, look, Cappellini is working on design, so you can’t make money doing design.
