design[in]video describes the people and the projects of Italian design

Gabriella Buccioli, my life, my garden. The plants have invaded the spaces, stormed the trees, shrunk the walkways, and blanketed the slopes. The garden looks like a wild, magical and evocative jungle, just as I wanted it to. I created it a little bit at a time, almost without realizing it at first and then with increasing awareness. As the work gradually took shape, I indulged my love for the plant world, following the thread of childhood memories and often becoming nature's accomplice or pupil, without sacrificing my own influence.

Neo-eclectic Design, Handicraft and Self-Production. Towards the end of the 1970s an intense movement developed in the world of design in Italy with the trendy groups Memphis and Alchimia. Around the same time Ugo La Pietra theorized "Neo-Eclectic Design".
L'angelo necessario. Paolo Pallucco talk about Pallucco In 1980 Paolo Pallucco founded a furniture and accessory company that bore his name. His products represent new concepts, and have a new aesthetic language. He undertook a path in which the search of functionality, technical innovation and study of shapes evolved hand in hand. His non-conformist approach to design and the memorable exhibitions in the ex Slaughterhouse of Milan during the 1988-1989 editions of the Furniture Fair have left a significant mark both because of the quality and for the staging of the products.
Devotion and Design.Tarshito's works bridge the gap there often is between the spiritual and the material worlds, and enlighten art's materiality with ancient meditation techniques known to humanity throughout the ages.(trailer)
Life Tube. The food of a lifetime in a sausage-gut in a performance by Andrea Salvetti.

Leather Works design Fernando and Humberto Campana. Each armchair requires about 400 pieces of leather that are all cut and freely and skillfully hand-assembled one upon the other. This involves a lot of work and led to the name Leather Works
Jenette design Fernando and Humberto Campana. A backrest made from 900 strands of flexible PVC ensures comfort and support that adapts to every sitting position.
Sculture da fuoco. Three special pot for cooking bread, meat and vegetables in a performance by the sculptor and designer Andrea Salvetti.
Alessandro Ciffo. His hyperbolic chairs are excessive, exaggerated, dilated: they exceed the design, overflow the borders, go beyond the edges. They force and extend the projectual idea.
