D_Art Lab | Turning Point Design

11May08

Back in Italy again – this time in Biella, near Torino. Since the beginning of this week I am one of the participants of the D_Art Lab. The workshop Turning Point Design is curated by the Production Office of Cittadellarte | Fondazione Pistoletto & ADI (Association for Industrial Design) within the Torino World Design Capital event. It involves 10 Italian businesses and a group of international designers and artists, assisted by different experts and testimonials.

»The workshop is aimed towards the conception, project planning and production of turning point design objects that are in line with the new perspective which assumes sustainability and responsible creativity as factors for success in global competition of businesses and the territory.«

Different creative workshops are held by Michelangelo Pistoletto, Mark Vanderbeeken & Jan-Christoph Zoels (Experientia), Ross Lovegrove, Francesco Bernabei, Edoardo Malagigi and others. Also, during the next three weeks we will visit each of the companies involved in this project (Serralunga, Aurora, etc.) and then choose with which of them we will realise a design.

We have also started a blog of the project with daily posts to show the process. And for more information on the participating designers and companies please click here.
