During the Salone del Mobile.Milano Shanghai  (20 – 22 November 2019), INTERNI will present the design talk The new frontiers of entrepreneurship.

The event, organised together with INTERNI China, will examine the strategic and productive directions of Italian design and the ways in which it is perceived in Asian markets, especially in China which is now the seventh biggest market for Italian furniture exports (Source: Assarredo). The protagonists of the conversation, which will take place on Thursday 21 November at 3.3 pm at the Shanghai Exhibition Center (Dome Hall – Piazza Italiana), will be Yang Dongjiang (Editor-in-chief INTERNI China and professor at the Academy Art and Design Tsinghua University) Gilda Bojardi (editor-in-chief of INTERNI), Renato Minotti (Co-CEO, Minotti), Giulia Molteni (Head of Marketing and Communication, Molteni&C|Dada), Antony Margiasso (Head of Industrial Design, Pininfarina Shanghai), Maria Porro (Head of Marketing and Communication, Porro), Eleonore Cavalli (Visionnaire Art Director), Sammy Ren and Cathy Zhang (Founders, Domus Tiandi).

Italian Design Factories, the fifth volume in the INTERNI Serie Oro, dedicated to Italian companies,  will receive its first presentation in Shanghai. The book ideally develops the narrative begun in 2014 with the celebratory volume marking the magazine’s 60th anniversary, followed, in 2016, by a collectors’ edition 500 Italian Design Icons Still in Production, and in 2017 by Icon Makers and in 2018 by Icon Architects.

“In a certain sense, this volume summarises and constitutes a global overview of the themes examined earlier,” explained Gilda Bojardi, editor-in-chief of INTERNI. “In fact, it is in the factories that we find the skills and the main players of the design system. And it is in the factories, in the sense of the locations of technical and cultural production, that the magic takes place that leads to ideas taking shape and being transformed into an object that has the power to move. Our focus is on all those situations in which the great tradition of Italian craftsmanship is renewed focus in a way that can be integrated into today’s most advanced industrial processes and seize the opportunities offered by digital technologies,” Bojardi concluded.

A total of 57 companies are presented by Italian Design Factories: each of them described through their specific distinctive characteristics, linked to history, architecture technological know-how, artisanal content and research. The volume will be completed in 2020, with the presentation of a selection of design excellence which, added to the first, will take us to 100 Italian Design Factories, in other words, the best of our furniture production, as well as accessories,  coverings and materials for the domestic space. In 2021, by combining the two volumes, a final volume will be published, dedicated to the most representative companies from the world of Made in Italy, a book for collectors that aims to be a valuable resource for information for Italian and foreign operators who want to know all about the world’s best manufacturing industry. For this reason, a number of international presentations have been planned to talk about Italian know-how and its ability to continuously renew itself. After Shanghai the volume will also be presented in Miami – during Design Miami for which INTERNI is a media partner – on Wednesday 4 December at the Wolsfsonian Museum whit the collaboration of Italian Consulate General, and then in Dubai during Expo 2020.

The magazine of interiors and contemporary design will take part in the fourth edition of Cafè della stampa with a lecture by the architect Cino Zucchi entitled “Ceramic identity. Surfaces and architectural design”


Milano, 20 September 2019INTERNI will take part in the fourth edition of Café della stampa organised as part of Cersaie 2019, the international ceramics fair for architecture and bathroom design, which will take place in Bologna  from 23 to 27 September. For the occasion the interiors e contemporary design magazine of the Mondadori Group has organised an event to discuss the synergic relationship between the surface of a new building and the environmental context in which it is placed.

Ceramic identity. Surfaces and architectural design is the title of a lecture to be given by the Milanese architect Cino Zucchi, founder of the studio CZA Cino Zucchi Architetti. Zucchi – who has already used ceramics and brickwork in many designs, both for their aesthetic qualities and sustainability – says that contemporary architecture often operates in a historically stratified context, in which buildings are constructed for contexts that were very different from current ones. The role of contemporary architecture is to interpret today’s needs while respecting the multiplicity of styles with which it has to interact.

 Ceramic identity. Surfaces and architectural design will take place on 25 September from 12 o’clock at the Café della stampa (Centro Servizi, Agorà dei Media) and the event will be introduced by Gilda Bojardi, editor-in-chief of INTERNI.

INTERNI presents a special OnBOARD dedicated to sailing

In September INTERNI recorded double-digit growth in advertising revenues and confirmed its absolute leadership in the professional living segment

On the occasion of the big international boat shows in September 2019, INTERNI, the Mondadori Group magazine of interiors and contemporary design, presents a special OnBOARD edition entirely dedicated to boats and yachts.

“Thanks to research, technological innovation and the evolution of boat-builders tastes, elements of residential living space are migrating to the world of yachting,” declared Gilda Bojardi, editor of INTERNI. “as a result, yachts are increasingly similar to floating villas, furnished with style and products taken from home design. And this before considering that some of the best known names from the architectural world and residential design have migrated on-board, and collaboration between boat-builders and Italian design brands have become evermore frequent.”

The INTERNI OnBOARD special looks at both the incredible history of Italian boat-building and the stories of the designers of their amazing yachts; their latest designs and the results achieved in terms of stylistic forms, comfort, material and technological solutions, as well, of course, as performance. Special attention will focus on on-board design: the use in yachts of super-light and innovative materials, domestically produced indoor and outdoor furnishings, automation options, chef kitchens, fully equipped gyms and office space  show the increasingly close link between nautical and residential design.

In September INTERNI recorded double-digit growth in advertising revenues compared with the same period of the previous year and confirmed its absolute leadership in the professional living segment.

INTERNI OnBoard will be available on newsstands along with the September issue of the magazine and will be distributed at Maison&Objet in Paris(6-10 September), the Cannes Yachting Festival (10-15 September), the Genoa Boat Show (19-24 September), the Monaco Yacht Show (25-28 September) and at selected showrooms of Italian design companies in New YorkLondon and Miami.

Interni “Icon Architects”: the collectors’ edition of Interni hits newsstands

The edition hits newsstands after the international previews in Miami and Shanghai

In December, the INTERNI system recorded a 3% increase on advertising revenues compared with 2017

Icon Architects is the fourth in the Serie Oro of INTERNI that is an ideal continuation of the account of Italian design begun in 2014 with the commemorative volume marking the 60th anniversary of the magazine. The year the focus shifts to Italian and international architects who, in addition to having created prestigious buildings and interiors, have been involved in some of our country’s most representative products. Their experience takes us to the origins of the phenomenon, the result of work by designers who wanted to design all-round, day-to-day spaces in their entirety: from architecture to objects of furniture.

We asked 100 Italian and international architects how, in the context of changes in the scale of their projects, their design approach changes. It is a topic of perennial interest that offers a picture of how they work within the Italian International Design system and contribute to the transformation of creative thinking into iconic products.

Following the preview at the Salone del Mobile.Milano Shanghai, Icon Architects will be presented also in Miami. INTERNI, together with the Istituto Marangoni Miami and the Italian Consulate General, has organised a design talk ICON ARCHITECTS – 100 International stories and visions, a debate on the role of the designer and the architect in contemporary society, the current relationship between the two disciplines and the new perspectives to which the culture of design seems to have shifted.

Following opening remarks from Cristiano Musillo (Italian Consul General), Hakan Baykam (President and CEO of the Istituto Marangoni Miami) and Gilda Bojardi (editor of INTERNI), the participants in the discussion will be Nasir Kassamali (CEO Luminaire), Giulio Cappellini (Art director and Designer), Piero Lissoni (architect), Massimo Perotti (president and managing director of Cantieri Sanlorenzo), Mauro Porcini (Senior Vice President and Chief Design Officer of PepsiCo) and Allan Shulman (architect).

The event will take place on Tuesday 4 December at 10.30 am at the Miami School of the Istituto Marangoni (Building 3700 NE 2nd Avenue, FL 33137), in the heart of the Design District, one of the most dynamic areas of the city which, in recent decades, has become famous around the world as a key Art, Design and Fashion destination.

The volume, for which an additional print run of 10.000 copies (in Italian and English), has been planned, will be distributed in the main design showrooms in Miami, New York, London and Milan.

Icon Architects has been supported by over 200 of the best and most representative brands from the world of international design, contributing to the excellent results of the INTERNI system which, in December alone, has recorded an increase in revenues of over 3% compared with 2017.

With 208 pages, Icon Architects will be available from this week from newsstands as a supplement top the new issue of the magazine at €10 (magazine included).
