A rare priviledge to listen to Sheila Metzner,
at Galleria Carla Sozzani to present her book “Sheila Metzner: From Life”,
published by Rizzoli International
together with Gianluca Gamberini, of the Grafiche dell’Artiere, one of the best Italian historical printer.
After a long career as an Art Director, Sheila became an uncommon photographer,
with a precise, unmistakable sign.
The result of her inexhaustible quest for beauty in forty years of life.
A Phantasmagoria the uncommon word
that came out during the talking about the transversal design,
thanks to the experience of Walter De Silva,
Designer and founder of WDS-Conceptdesign,
former director of Global Design Team of the Volskwagen Group;
to a clear panorama of National Design from Luciano Galimberti,
ADI President, Association of Industrial Design
and to the true, compelling words of Prof. Flaviano Celaschi,
teacher of Industrial Design at University of Bologna.
Decio Carugati perfectly introduced to a trasversal discipline,
a design-thinking from the project of automotive design,
from the Con-tatto table made by Codiceicona,
to the technologycal stiletto shoes.
A joyful opening to celebrate the exhibition
Domus 90. Gio Ponti.
A tribute to the vision of Gio Ponti, an amuse-bouche from his work
coming from the archives of magazine Domus,
thanks to the curators Walter Mariotti, editorial director with Simone Bordone, Domus Special Projects
and Cristina Moro, Domus Archives.
On Monday April 16th, 2018 at 7.00 pm,
to celebrate Milan’s 2018 Salone del Mobile,
Fondazione Sozzani presents “Con-tatto”, a word pun between contact and touch –
with a discussion about Transversal Design as expressed in a wide range of design fields
with Flaviano Celaschi, Professor of Industrial Design at University of Bologna,
Walter De Silva, Designer and Founder of WDS-Conceptdesign
and Luciano Galimberti, President ADI, Industrial Design Association.
