500 Italian Design Icons 1954/2016 – Still in Production

Now on newsstands, the volume Italian Design Icons - Interni Serie Oro, a supplement to Interni December 2016
Data Pubblicazione: 5 December 2016

Italian Design Icons is a publication that continues the narrative of Italian design begun by Interni in 2014 with the volume that celebrated the magazine’s 60th birthday.

Applying the same decade-by-decade approach, we have retraced the evolution of design and lifestyle through 500 iconic products, all Italian, created from 1954 to the present. Furnishings and complements, obviously very different from one another, all with their own historical, linguistic and cultural characteristics.

But the items also have one important common denominator: they are all still in production, available in Italy and abroad, for those who want to personalize their homes with timeless pieces or creations with a strong identity.

The overview of iconic products is accompanied by the remarks of 24 internationally acclaimed designers who indicate and explain their most important and representative projects, in a sort of design self-portrait.

The volume concludes with a hypothesis on what might be the icons of tomorrow, namely the products of the present that will define the new trends of living, and lay the groundwork for new expressive languages.

With 188 pages and critical contributions (Cristina Morozzi, Marco Romanelli and Matteo Vercelloni), Italian Design Icons is available starting on 6 December at newsstands, as a supplement to Interni no. 667, December 2016.

Interni takes part during the days of Book City in Milan, offering audiences the writings of three great designers read and commented on by three architects with a passion for writing.

The program begins with Patrizia Ranzo who will lead listeners through the discovery of the literary world of Ettore Sottsass (18 November), with his extraordinary ability to grasp and convey concepts with great immediacy and sensitivity.

Stefano Boeri will read from the volume Amate l’architettura by Gio Ponti (19 November), in which the great Milanese architect wrote that “architects not only design, they also write. And they write a lot: books, essays, comments, reflections.”

Finally, the “Scritti di Domenica” by Alessandro Mendini (20 November) will be the focus of an encounter between the author-architect himself and the art historian Loredana Parmesani. Reading by Antonio Syxty, theatre and art director.

The three readings take place at 5pm at the Sala Bertarelli of the Sforza Castle in Milan. Free of charge.

About 650 companies from 40 countries, including important international brands, show their wares in the sectors of furniture, flooring, acoustics, lighting, technical equipment for conferences and information and communication technologies. At Orgatec 2016 they also present a series of proposals to respond to trends like teamwork, digitalization, the furnishing of complete environments and workplace appeal.

Besides the stands in the fair, there are many other events during which design professionals and design lovers can find inspiration to create the world of work of the future. Creative design is the protagonist in the passage between Pavilions 10 and 11.

In the exhibition Design meets movement important European designers present brilliant solutions from Scandinavia, not just for indoor workspaces but also as an interface with the outside world, with multifunctional installations for outdoor work.

At the Competence Center of Pavilion 11, Re/Work. Moments of Inspiration is a project created by Ippolito Fleitz Group with the installation of ten emblematic moments, in a humorous take on the workplace of the future.

Smart Office Materials, the exhibition produced by Haute Innovation, focuses on the potential of the latest materials and possible solutions for tomorrow’s work facilities. The smart office of the future is unthinkable without innovation in terms of new materials. With intelligent design that contributes to make the work facilities of creative people multifunctional, sustainable and smart.

In the exhibition The smart working space it is possible to see how design can influence the furnishings of coworking spaces. The “smart coworking lobby” model describes a module that can become the basis for modern office buildings, bringing the philosophy of coworking into already existing real estate structures. All the details have been tested in practice, based on a design with a thousand possible variations. The result is a model that can be considered the “perfect working environment” for the challenges of the digital transformation.

In the project Life at work (Pavilion 05.2), in collaboration with Vitra, the London-based studio Pernilla Ohrstedt and the studio Jonathan Olivares of Los Angeles shed fascinating light on the world of work of the future.

For several editions by now, Orgatec hosts the area Made in Italy, which occupies 300 m2 of Pavilion 10.2. Participating companies include: Cantarutti, Arrmet, Castelli2014, Diemme Office, P.F. Stile and Real Piel.
