From 19 to 23 January 2018 MAISON & OBJET is back, the Parisian fair on the art de vivre, decor and design. An event that is a reference point for home-fashion, known for its 360° overview of furnishings, accessories, textiles, fragrances, the world of kids, and the arts of the table. A platform that combines business and creativity, bringing together buyers, architects and designers.

Italy is the protagonist of the “Rising Talent Awards for young talents. Six successful personalities from the world of design choose the emerging talents, offering a chance to be seen in an international showcase: Giulio Cappellini has chosen Antonio Facco (the youngest, born in 1991), Piero Lissoni indicates Kensaku Oshiro (1977), Rossana Orlandi has named Guglielmo Poletti (1987), Andrea Branzi picks Federica Biasi (1989), Rosita Missoni nominates Marco Lavit Nicora (1986), and Luca Nichetto has chosen Federico Peri (1983).

The “designer of the year” is the Danish talent Cecilie Manz. Born in Copenhagen, she was chosen due to the quality and elegance of her creations: from her first project, the Ladder in 1999, to the speakers for Bang & Olufsen, her work always focuses on simplicity and the pursuit of clean, refined forms. Manz brings the results of her research to Paris, mixing well-known projects with new creations.

In the January 2018 edition the agency NellyRodi will develop the “Show-Room” concept in the Espace d’Inspirations and the Cafe-Bookstore. This concept is based on reflections about the sector and marketing research conducted with a focus on innovation and creativity. The idea is that consumers no longer want to listen to stories, they want to have experiences: showrooms and stores become places of entertainment and experimentation. The store is no longer a place to search through what is already available: for better or worse, thanks to digital devices, it has to become a living place, like a home, in which to engage in experiences and offer one’s own opinions.

Interni Icon Makers

Now on newsstands, the volume Interni Icon Makers - Interni Serie Oro, a supplement to Interni December 2017
Data Pubblicazione: 5 December 2017

What makes so many of the protagonists of Italian design into true Icon Makers? It’s hard to say. The formula is based on a successful alchemical mixture that is almost impossible to decode, whose binder is the long history of manufacturing in our country, and a vital productive fabric driven by a wide range of remarkable professional figures. A system of different forms of intelligence and expertise that gives rise to a variegated panorama of products, vivid presences in the collective imaginary and their communication.

The special issues of the Serie Oro (Gold Series) of Interni are dedicated to these personalities, in an ideal continuation of the narrative of Italian design that began in 2014 with the volume to mark the 60th anniversary of the magazine.

After “Design Icons” in 2016, with 500 iconic products of Italian design from 1954 to the present, this year the focus shifts to the protagonists ‘behind the scenes’ of design: entrepreneurs, photographers, graphic artists and communicators who play a key role in the international success and innovation of the brands of Made in Italy, in the evolution of furniture design and tastes.

The history and contemporary spirit of Italian design are narrated through an overview of 100 selected protagonists, presented in their specific professional categories. They are introduced with writings by renowned international critics like Domitilla Dardi, Deyan Sudjic and Leonardo Sonnoli, who discuss the roots and specificities of contemporary design. The contributions of Cristina Morozzi and Christoph Radl focus on the work of the photographers and art directors, taking stock of the evolution of roles and types of expertise.

The story and the challenges of the Icon Makers, identified through various indications, are described by the protagonists themselves, in a sort of self-portrait. Direct testimony, without attempting to cover all the various facets of business and communication, but offering an overall vision of the people who work in the complex system of Italian International Design, contributing to the transformation of design thinking into iconic products.
