Inside and out. A concept the design world has embraced for several years now, thanks to highly evolved technologies and materials that permit the creation of products that can be used both inside and outside the home. We have taken this concept as the starting point for an issue that more generally investigates the theme in relation to the many qualities of design and architecture: inside and outside space, material, form, surface, the substance of objects and buildings. Dualist, divergent, contradictory thinking, offering different vantage points on the complexity of contemporary design. The analysis is introduced by the critical reflections of the Turin-based studio UdA, engaged for some time now in ongoing experimental research on the residence. Then come other constructed works that from the viewpoint of in&out approach the dimensions of the home and hospitality (in Italy and abroad), offering new proposals and paying close attention to the dimension of recovery of existing things. Shifting to the scale of design, the game of oppositions gets clearer: ‘inside’ involves research and innovation of processes, giving materials unexpected visual and tactile qualities; ‘inside’ is also a hidden mechanism – the result of 36 months of study – to shift the positions of an armchair; ‘outside’ is a matter of modular components, in a suspension lamp that adapts to a wide range of spatial needs, just as ‘out’ can refer to the visual distortions of new mirrors that transcend their function to become sculptural objects. Finally, furnishings that interpret the most erudite languages of contemporary living can be both ‘in and out,’ since they adapt to an outdoor setting that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.
