Rising Talent Awards 2018

Six mentors – six influential figures from the design industry – were called upon to name one Rising Talent each. Andrea Branzi, Piero Lissoni, Luca Nichetto, Art Director Giulio Cappellini, Rossana Orlandi and Rosita Missoni have picked today’s most promising talents. Though personal kinships and past collaborations certainly were a factor in their decision, the Jury was truly determined to celebrate the work of anonymous young designers, who received the news with great surprise and jubilation.Federica Biasi, Antonio Facco, Marco Lavit Nicora, Kensaku Oshiro, Federico Peri and Guglielmo Poletti are the six Italian designers who have been chosen for the Rising Talent Awards Italy. A wonderful opportunity for them to show the entire design community their immense potential and the direction Italian design is headed. I proud to announce to have been nominated by the master Andrea Branzi.
For MAISON&OBJET, I chosen to tell the story of my own creative background, with a selection of iconic products from the past, revisited using unexpected materials, as well as a series of exclusive objects designed specially for the occasion. Among those: a faience tableware collection, with motifs hand-painted by Christian Pegoraro (Bottega Nove) and a rug designed in collaboration with CC-TAPIS, inspired by a night she spent in the desert, which associates earthly tones with North-African fabric patterns. Her exhibition will be entirely framed by a metal structure crafted by Mingardo

CMF Professor in Master’s Courses : Product design & Furniture

CMF, which stands for Color, Material & Finish, is an area of specialty within the greater industrial design discipline. At large, design-centric hardware companies, CMF designers work alongside industrial designers and product design engineers to make sure that the chromatic and tactile identities of the product are on brand and in vogue. On smaller teams, a lone industrial designer might take on this role.During the design phase, CMF is often communicated with stakeholders via renderings and descriptive language. However, when an appearance model or production units need to be made, CMF needs to be communicated more precisely so that there’s no room for misinterpretation. In this article, we’ll introduce some terms you can use for lean, effective CMF communication.
