Italian design has traveled throughout the twentieth century, leaving an indelible mark on how the shape of everyday objects is perceived in contemporary industrial society.
This "Italian way" has succeeded, through a complex and hesitant process of industrial innovation and new technologies, to develop a culture of independent and multi-faceted design, combining the rich tradition of craftsmanship in the country with an aspiration often fiercely opposed to modernity.
Boffi | de Padova, in collaboration with the Italian Chamber of Commerce, presents a panel discussion with leading Italian architects and designers of Hong Kong, engaging them in a roundtable talk about the new trends in Italian design, as well as the design industry in Hong Kong.
The panel discussion will be followed by drinks and light refreshments.
