My point of view. A Ferruccio Laviani speech about personal experience in product design and architecture. 

Born in Cremona in 1960, he graduated from Milan’s Scuola Politecnica di Design in 1984, completing a degree in Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Milan in 1986. He started work at the Studio De Lucchi, going on to design for many famous brands in his own right. His career has embraced literary and musical culture and many, deliberate, cross-pollinations. He is a non-conformist designer, alert to passions and always generous with his designs.

My Way.

Born in Lecce in 1966, he graduated in Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Milan in 1992; he studied cinema at New York University in 1993 and opened his first studio in 1994. A superstar of Italian design, he is one of the most vivacious and imaginative designers on the contemporary scene, unafraid of bucking the trend with hugely powerful creative projects countering the prevailing minimalism. He has collaborated with brands all over the world.

Mario Bellini. Design as a cultural act.

Born in Milan in 1935, Mario Bellini is an architect, designer and lover of art and has spent his career in the sphere of industrial design, establishing himself as one of the most outstanding exponents of historic and contemporary Italian design the world over. His work graces the homes of millions of people and is held by many museums. His work is underpinned by his belief that the quest for beauty should never cease, because of its inherent subversive and salvific power.   

Friday 12th October
