Between Verona, Venice, Monselice and Torri del Benaco a great event recalls the English playwright and poet. During the second world war a big part of the Italian construction legacy had been destroyed, so it was important to find new ideas to reconstruct the country: this was an interesting challenge for designers and architects who were called to renew Italian dwelling places in a technical and functional way.
Italy knew an intense industrial design development during the first world war, from 1910 to 1920 which were decisive years mainly for car, plane and general mechanical industry. Considered to be one of Italy’s most important architects, Giò Ponti is a name that is still recognised and revered in the world of design. Italian Design Brands is a strategic opportunity to project your business into the future, making it grow, joining a group that is strong, large and able to create and seize upon the opportunities of a global market. The technical department is to support the designers starting from the early stages. From Italian radical design to a home near you, this was the original beanbag chair.
This last mentioned Italian industry became in a few time the second world-wide exporter after United States, with objects created by Alberto Rosselli, Marco Zanuso, Achille Castiglioni , Piergiacomo Castiglioni and Gino Valle (he cooperated for a long time with Rex-Zanussi company).
The gentlemanly designer, 62, was one of the most influential figures in the industry at the tail end of the last century, and the Milan-based company founded by his father in 1946 was regarded as the most innovative and glamorous furniture brand in the world.
So, the Pink Dog barks at good design and he likes discovering new designs, matching new colours, scouting trends, wandering around new cities, peeking into someone elses’s homes (may be an eclectic, a Scandi, a minimal one..), he loves being surprised of new small things and looking through a lens (its iphone one).
