Sixth Lecture: Masters of Italian Design

Last year we looked at the history of Design and pondered over the exact definition of 'good design'; its relationship to our daily lives and the role it should play. This year our interest is geographical and as we happen to live in Italy it is only fitting that we should look at the great influential Italian Masters such as Ponti, Castiglioni, Magistretti, Zanuso, Sotsass. Beautiful and useful objects like Lamps from Fontana Arte and Flos, Chairs and bookshelves from Kartell… If you are Design savvy you are sure to have either owned or desired one of these beauties at some point. If you are new to the subject, study up with us; the Great Design Exhibition at Milan's Triennale is coming.
