EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

In the saturated market of industrial products, self-produced design is becoming increasingly popular. Self-production is, theoretically, a kind of affirmation of autonomyin practice, often it translates in a real self-promotional strategy. Other times, it’s rather a step towards forms of highly artisanal forms of production, between single pieces and small series. Self-production can become the main way for young designers, moved by the renewed interest in manual and direct experimentations on the subject.

WHO IS IT FOR

For people of all ages who are curious to experience the artisanal aspect of “made in Italy” design. For anyone who loves hand-made and self-made design work and looks for an improvement of the personal creative portfolio.
