World Design Capital Torino 2008

martedì 1 gennaio 2008

1 gennaio 2008.

Torino entra ufficialmente nell’Anno Mondiale del Design.  Discorso d’élite e diffusione popolare. La sfida è dura ma altrettanto coinvolgente.  Portare il tema del design alla gente comune, farla interagire, far scoprire il design nelle visioni quotidiani attraverso una lente ad hoc, il to design to. Cercheremo di raccontarvi il design che ci sta più a cuore, quello sulla carta, ça va sans dire.

Torino officially opens the year of World Design Year.  Elite topic and popular diffusion. A hard challenge, but appealing at the same time: to take the world of design to common people, making them interact and discover design in daybyday visions through a specific lens, the to design to. We will try to tell you about the design we love more, the one on paper, of course.
