NEW MASTER IN PRODUCT & FURNITURE DESIGN
THE PERFECT COMBINATION BETWEEN DESIGNERS, COMPANIES AND STUDENTS. A NEW WAY TO EXPERIMENT THE “MADE IN ITALY” IN DESIGN
Starting from October 2020, Istituto Marangoni Milano Design will launch the Master in Product & Furniture Design, in a new formula, completely renewed, to involve students in living a study, research and design experience with international and prestigious designers and companies.
The course, designed by Giulio Cappellini, Art Director and Brand Ambassador of Istituto Marangoni, will be divided into three distinct terms, in each of which students will be assigned a research project in collaboration with a designer and a company.
It will be a truly unique educational path, conceived to build a new way of imagining the relationship between designer, business and school: a dialogue that will allow you to undertake surprising research paths even for the companies involved in the projects, which are certainly a stimulus to imagine tomorrow’s objects, spaces and relationships.
The first term project will see the collaboration between Elena Salmistraro, one of the most interesting names of the new generation of Italian design, and Moroso, an important brand in Italian design that has been able to reconcile artisan and tailoring know-how with industrial production processes.
Students will aim to explore new aesthetic and material solutions to be applied to the brand’s products: a visionary project to consolidate the role of Moroso as a protagonist of modern design.
Philippe Nigro, French designer who divides his business between Italy and France, defining his professional identity through the union of these two cultures will be protagonists , and Alias, a leading company in the development of furniture systems for the contemporary world. The research project will investigate new possible furnishing solutions that favor fluid work, integrating remote and proximity situations, private spaces and work environments, defining a flexible and functional dimension capable of combining the efficiency of smart working with sophisticated experience of made in Italy furniture.
The third project will see the involvement of Moreno Vannini of the Studio Nendo, an internationally renowned signature in the design scene known for its ability to combine form and lightness in highly poetic and evocative furnishings, and Alessi company, a symbol throughout the world of vocation in search of Italian design.
A match of opposites that aims to combine Nendo’s clean and minimalist approach with Alessi’s distinctive ability to combine playful lightness and cultural depth in highly iconic objects.
