Since 1997 I’m working in Unifor. A post-industrial office furniture and work environment crafts. Some elements done with industrial technologies completed with hand made details and solutions are together in the whole production. A continuous research of new production processes and technologies.
A worldwide market requires a wide knowledge of specific standards, certification schemes. Product certification, building certification, wood based material certification and systems certifications are part of the process to arrive to a final product, not less important than Design itself. A simple table has to consider ergonomics, recycled content, responsible use of raw materials, quality and environmental impacts.
Design is Work. A Method is necessary to be Efficient. The Idea is only the main “Tema”, you have to write a score “la partitura” to complete an Opera, enrich and manage the instruments.
I feel affinity to Achille Castiglioni, Diter Rams, Bruno Munari.
