Seventh edition of INVENTARIO ‘Everything is a Project’ continues to detail design culture from a number of diverging points of view, and this time research dedicated to the book object has been selected as a starting point – not the book as a physical product, however, but as a world of things and actions whose designs have been inspired by the book, and are related to it. A collection of objects that mark the advancement of reading, tools to help readers, structures that hold and sort rows of books, lamps and other decorative objects that have been made for and with books, and, how fundamental constructive and structural elements are found even within books themselves.
In this edition, Elio Grazioli speaks of Claudio Parmiggiani’s “Delocazione” which converts a room into a type of three-dimensional sensitive plate, upon which the shape of objects stand out. Meanwhile, in the Manuale dell’Architetto, Mariana Siracusa tells us how artists and designers have managed and reinterpreted a rational space: the corner, which in itself is not very welcoming. Francesco Garutti tells us about Blinky Palermo, who redefined the language of painting. Among the New Masters, we find Martí Guixé, Catalan food designer, true innovator of food design who, in this interview with Paolo Bocchi, illustrates his personal and professional journey. Then, there is the work of Umberto Riva in an article by Michele Calzavara, paper knives explained by Giulio Iacchetti, sofas and chairs by Nina Saunders, travel paintings by Vittoria Chierici and the new talents of Futuro Prossimo (Stéphanie Baechler, Denise Bonapace, James Teng). And much more.
