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 this second event, we will have the opportunity to meet the 3 Michelin star Niko Romito in dialogue with Nerina Di Nunzio, Director of IED Rome and digital marketing and communication expert. Food is clearly a system activator and its cultural function is essential. From hunger to a love of and taste for good food, to all social aspects and appetite, food design involves consumers and contexts at 360 degrees. At a time when global hunger and waste are gripping the planet while the fashion for (so-called) quality food rages in our households and when dining out, the time has come not just for media attention but to reflect on tools and priorities, responsibilites, obligations and the use of aesthetic and creativity.
