15 mag 2014 Barcelona, and less famous Gaudi's works

Barcelona, and less famous Gaudi's works

Discovering philosophy and products at his house-museum

BARCELONA, SPAIN.  Barcelona, Antoni Gaudi’s city. A simple tourist may just remember the incompleteness of Sagrada Familia and the curved building he designed. Gaudi deserves more attention, as architect and designer. Where can a good student start?



The first stage is his home within Park Güell, just few steps away from the historical center. “His” home means he designed and inhabited it.
The house is today a little museum where, by the rooms and their furniture, we can meet Gaudi’s design philosophy.

It’s the early 20th Century Spain. Gaudi is a well-known scrupulous architect and designer who wants to design and realize everything in detail (that’s why he wasn’t able to complete his masterpiece the Sagrada Familia).

The projects of the buildings have been elaborated more and more times, and we can say the same thing about the furniture, whose concept underwent a continuous process of study and improvement. The products in his house-museum testify it - they come from Casa Calvet, la Casa Batlló and Cripta de la Colònia Güell too.

Year after year, Gaudi was not influenced by the trends of his time (photo 3), but nature. This leads to new ergonomic solutions (photo 5), without unnecessary ornaments.

It was a successful study: Antoni’s final products are more functional and stable solutions compared to what existed before.

The benches of the Crypt, dating back in 1875 (photo 7), are a good example: their curved shapes provide each believer a greater intimacy during his relationship with God.

Products are perfectly integrated with their own living space: in just a few words, they meet the customers’ needs (he already understood it at that time)!

17 apr 2014 The social lamp? It's designed by a SID graduated

The social lamp? It's designed by a SID graduated

Laura Modoni's product has already brought her to Milan and Frankfurt

MILANO.  Laura Modoni is one of the protagonists at last Salone Satellite. Why? Let her tell us!



Hello Laura, graduated at SID in...?
2011!

What do you do know?
I worked 2 years along with Andrea Bratovich, SID graduated too, in a company in Padua. We designed and produced a range of multi-functional furniture products, “DesignYouEdit”. After that, I chose to focus on my projects.
By now, I manage a couple of collaborations with artisans and architects. For example, we’re thinking about furniture and sound absorptions systems.

Scuola Italiana Design... What’s your best memory?
The 3rd year, ie the Master’s year, was the year which gave me the best satisfactions, with its typical nights spent in working on the final presentations, the working meetings and the direct debates with the companies, understanding that in a few month (at last!) my energies should be enough to succeed by my own.

What’s the main teaching you’ve applied in your job?
Difficult question: in my current job I can find a lot of traces given by SID.
After my short experience in a company, I realized there’s too much pragmatism, no time for brainstorming, crazy ideas and inventive proposals.
Scuola Italiana Design teached me to give a value to those inputs and not to forget to look for them: they’re the needed stimuli to create something different from the existing world.

We want to talk with you about the lamp Filò, which made you win the 1st prize of FSC Italia contest 2013! What can you tell us about FSC Italia?
The contest FSC Italia Design Award was born 2 years ago to spread the use of FSC brand in a very important sector for our country: furniture. In particular, the topic for 2013 was Home Sociability: they asked to design a furniture product able to foster the sharing moments in domestic spaces.

Why did you win?
I presented Filò, a wooden lamp that can change its shape according to the atmospheres we want to create. The lamp let us draw the light starting from our need and moods: a different lamp for each ritual of conviviality.

What are the features of Filò?
Filò is a lamp with several personalities: by scrolling the 12 wooden bows illuminated by LED, we can create different configurations, with different identities and functions. This is possible thanks to the “creeping” contacts which allow the lamp to be turned on during the repositioning of the bows.

You reached the Light+Building in Frankfurt thanks to this victory, didn’t you?
It’s true. At the end of the contest they developed the 3 winning projects. In my case, I was helped by a joinery FSC certified and a spin-off of the University of Padua (for the optical and electric components). I presented my prototype with this spin-off at Light+Building 2014 in Frankfurt, a very important trade fair for lighting, which ended just a few days before the Salone del Mobile.

And finally here you are at Milan trade fair!
Thanks to ADI special prize, that I won for the FSC Italia, I had the opportunity to exhibit the prototype at Salone Satellite, within the ADI stand. But you can also find Filò online: www.filolamp.com.
