INTERNI, the Mondadori interiors and contemporary design monthly, edited by Gilda Bojardi, continues the celebrations for its 60th anniversary during the “London Design Festival”. In fact, from 12 to 19 September, the magazine has organised “Interni60 – Innovative Landscape Talks”, a cycle of encounters in the English capital linked to the culture of building design and new scenarios in furniture design.
The events will take place in some of London’s most important Made in Italy showrooms which for the occasion will become the stage for unique debates conceived to promote the culture of design. “Interni60 – Innovative Landscape Talks” is an stimulating opportunity for confrontation and exchange for both companies and professionals, as well as invited audiences who can participate in discussion with some of the world’s most interesting architecture and design studios.
The initiative will begin on Friday 12 September, at 6 pm with Zaha Hadid Architects and a discussion of the new challenges facing architecture (and held at Artemide, 106 Great Russell Street). This will be followed, on Monday 15 September with Sybarite and an analysis of retail design and Made in Italy prototyping (at Natuzzi, 80-81 Tottenham Court Road, Marylebone); on Tuesday 16 September with Gensler who will entertain the audience with new scenarios in living (at Molteni&C Dada, 19.30 Alfred Place – Whittington House), while on Wednesday 17 September SOM Skidmore Owings and Merrill will take a close look at the issue of the design of new timeless buildings in Europe (at Moroso, 7-15 Rosebery Avenue). Finally, on Friday 19 September, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands will explain how to design a dining experience (at Boffi, – 254 Brompton Road). And a maverick voice from the world of architecture, on Thursday 18 September, the designer and artist Martino Gamper will present new possibilities and concepts in the use of wood, in the context of “Wood Mood di Valcucine” (43-149 Great Portland Street).
A cocktail, based on typical Italian products, will be offered at the end of each event. For information and a complete calendar of the events, please go to www.internimagazine.it.
