Donegani's visit is timely and pertinent, at a time where Beirut is becoming the hub of design and innovation in the region; with a booming design community and the mushrooming of studios that are offering impressive work and ideas.
His conference, entitled: "Italian Design: Between Research & Professionalism", will speak to anyone in the design industry be-it product, interior or architecture, and will help in giving an honest and realistic view on the design & idea-generation process. It will also give and insider's view on the success behind Italian design. Something, that is according to Donegani's greatly due to the decentralized nature of small Italian studios that often act as small laboratories of big ideas; much like what is happening now in Beirut.
Donegani will be sharing his take on working with big brands while keeping his design independence from marketing & commercial departments. He will also be discussing the importance of 'non-specialization' in design and the vital role of wearing different hats and having an ever-evolving perspective in order to be successful in this industry.
Thanks to his work in the different sectors that include: product and furniture, interior design, architecture competitions, curation of exhibitions and his academic work, Donegani offers us a raw look at the 'birth of products' from the concept, the theoretical/technical side to the strategic problems confronted in the elaboration stages, as well as the development and communication stages.
The conference will be held at:
1- ALBA on the 3rd of April at 6pm.
2- A more intimate gathering (open to the public) will be held at :
