Belgium – Italian Design in a show: “The Culture of Project Designing”

The Italian Cultural Institute in Brussels will open the exhibition “Italian Design: the Culture of Project Designing” at 7 p.m. on 14 September with the aim of shedding light on the ingeniousness of several Italian architects and designers who have become international design icons during the second half of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries. The exhibition, which will run until 8 November, displays all the Italian works of the collection of the CID – Centre d’innovation et de design del Grand Hornu. At the opening, Giovanna Massoni (art director of Reciprocity Design Liege) will have a chat, in French, with designer Mario Trimarchi. Some of the objects displayed in the exhibition are the fruit of the combination of the designers’ creativity and the excellence of Italian manufacturing industry, represented by brands like Alessi, Artemide, Danese, Magis, Oluce, Produzione Privata, Venini, Serafino Zani and Zanotta. Other objects bear witness to the poetic inspiration of architect-designers of the calibre of Andrea Branzi, Ettore Sottsass or Michele de Lucchi.
