Thanks to all those friends who make us feel proud to be human.
Thanks to the “till 6am” nights
Thanks to those exchanged thoughts, to those moments passed talking about future society,
about design meaning, technology, ethics, international politics, human rights… controversial thoughts.
Thanks to those sounds that escorts our minds stirring up our synapsis.
Thanks to our luckiness (or not) of having borned in this part of the planet.
Thanks to the circumstances …to this fabulous crisis.
…and especially to this controvert technology that makes our brains communicate each other all around the world.
Thanks to you to be part of my life.
Now you can see a work I have been the pleasure to collaborate on a few weeks ago

This time it took almost 14 months to bring to life this new baby.
His name is Mark Polite and it is a mongrel between furniture and art framing.
Go to know him!
I just want to share with you and propose you to think about this quote by the american illustrator Bill Watterson.
I can imagine our brain as a huge racetrack made of infinite small corridors and intersections where a lot of little little neurons run their way.
An endless succession of choices made by emotions.
How much different should be our life if we just change one of those?
How much different should be our life if we seat outside and look at the stars each night?
This week we have been working pretty much.
It’s now time to have a moment of relax and reflection.
I leave you here this short video which was occupying my secondary screen during last 3 mins.
Have a good end of the week.
See you soon!
Nice to see you again! especially in that way!

After a few months I’m ready to go back to my dear Bovolone with a few new projects in my handbag…
I’ve been thinking a lot about all that, and now it’s time to act!
Collaborations with local industries. Viral positivity. Social projects for a new cultural enhancement.
Looking forward. Over economical and politics changes.
Just thinking on a sustainable reality. Beginning from the smallest things.

The British designer James Irvine has died at the Hospital Fatebenefratelli in Milan, Italy. He was 54.
An industrial designer, Irvine was born in London and studied at the city’s Royal College of Arts before moving to Milan in 1984. Irvine would spend the majority of his career in Italy – founding his own studio there in 1988 – and died in Milan’s Hospital Fatebenefratelli’s last night.
A spokesperson for Irvine’s studio said that the studio had been devastated to learn of Irvine’s death and that the future of the studio was uncertain.
“We only heard the news this morning and are all shocked,” he said. “We’re not thinking about the studio now; it’s something we will look at over the next few days.”
Irvine made his name working as a design consultant for Italian brand Olivetti between 1984 and 1992, where he developed projects under the guidance of Italian designers Michele De Lucchi and Ettore Sottsass. Irvine would subsequently serve as a partner of Sottsass’ studio until 1998.
Asked about his design ethos, Irvine once remarked, “Always question why you’re doing something, unless you are being paid a ridiculous amount of money, then really question it.”
A memorial service will be held in Milan on Wednesday. Irvine is survived by his wife and two children.
I’m touched to know this, especially after knowing what he really didin his life and especially for my hometown company Marsotto Edizioni.
I feel emotionally near their family and studio.
