The story of ‘another’ design: from great icons to more experimental research
After tackling the subjects of interior decor products and domestic living in the first two editions, we are back with Design Stories to discuss several types of applications with experts in the field. Design –and Italian design especially- is characterised by the wide breadth of design areas and for its cross-disciplinarity, spanning from what we wear and what we eat to how we get information and communicate. Four events to tell how design is present in our daily lives, in any product that requires a reflection on the conditions and purpose of an action.
At our fourth event, we will meet Paolo Ferrarini, researcher, professor and editor.
Fashion and product design are areas of the project that coexist in harmony and opposition at the same time. Starting from the Industrial Revolution, they had similar and often overlapping stories as well as fluctuating fortune of critics. Despite some obvious differences, what they have in common is the pivotal role of the body around which experiments and revolutions, technical and material innovations, safeguarding of tradition and pioneering visions, mass productions and niche phenomena take place.
Introduced by Domitilla Dardi MAXXI Architecture design curator
