In the design world the term Style used to have a negative meaning, while today it implies a constitutive and fundamental part of any creative work. The economist Luca Solca, one of the most prominent contemporary luxury brand analysts, has reminded us about it. Encouraged by Michele Lupi, Solca has referred to the fashion and high-end world, turning deeply inside out the concept of luxury in general but also in the changes due to a more and more e-commerce society. He illustrated the need to think in terms of exclusivity, as well as continuous innovation, explaining the risks of the so-called "old sale". A lesson that, coming from an area parallel to the furniture field, is useful, in order to prevent any mistakes and to identify possible strategies.

What would be, in the near future, the technological applications that will mostly affect our daily life?
Matteo Pirola, professor at the Politecnico di Milano, interviewed for this reason Angelo Cangelosi, one of the world's leading experts in Artificial Intelligence. The talk, that tried to clarify such an actual topic, was about caregiver robots, anthropomorphic robots that learn to talk, trust issues between man and robots and moral responsibilities of a driving robot.

The results of an extraordinary 2016 are already official: turnover +26% with 42 million, exports +40%, number of employees +10%, industrial complex area +4,800 sqm. However, records are made to be broken, especially for a company that has never stopped growing since its foundation. At the beginning of June, the positive trend of previous years seems to be confirmed. The orders growth by 21% over the same period of 2016 push the forecast turnover of 2017 close to the 50 million target. This trend is linked both to the rebirth of the domestic market (+25%) and exports (+15%), thanks also to the opening of 3 new markets: Cambodia, Peru and Ghana. An ever-expanding horizon: Rimadesio is now present in 90 countries around the world.

Rimadesio approach has always been aimed to higher ecological goals, indeed the company is self-sufficient in power supply and certified according to the highest European standards; but today the word “ecology” means much more. Marco Belpoliti, among the most forward-looking Italian intellectuals, reminded us of that, by describing the birth (actually very recent, at the mid nineteenth century) and the etymological meaning of the term “ecology”, as well as its developments and environmental implications. A “back-to-Nature” goal that needs humans charging themselves of their choices, according to the consumption of either land, as well as objects and words. Finally, the homo faber is not required to deny his will to create, but to overcome the false myth of “novelty”.

Every year Rimadesio asks a different photographer to interpret the exclusive surfaces of its collection and it shows the results within the catalogue Stories and Matters. After Santi Caleca for 2016, this year was selected Nicolas Polli, young Swiss photographer and graphic designer. The making of his pictures  is based on the concept of photo shooting as an unreal action, sorted by the assembly of multiple shots and the choice of unusual perspectives. For Rimadesio, Nicolas works on the perspective estrangement effect and the objects are floating without reference points in an undefined black space. Lightings improve the dynamism of shapes and enhance the finishing of each element.

Talking about "architecture" is no longer common. The interiors are now considered as spaces to be filled rather than be defined: this is the theory expressed by Beppe Finessi and Marco Romanelli during the first (out of  four) "Talking about..." event, that took place on May 25th at the Rimadesio Theatre in Milan. A debate on different definitions (interior design or furnitures?), teaching, magazines, architect-client relationships and "equipped-houses". In summary, the focus was the great importance of interior spaces in the contemporary architecture.

The sliding systems, always the focus of the Rimadesio proposal, are now the key elements of a major technical and aesthetic evolution. The substantial improvement involves the sliding mechanism, now much lighter and more precise, combined with a series of patented solutions, designed to reach a complete architectural integration. Like the new black finish, perfectly concealing, applied to the new rails and various mechanical components, and the innovative rails covering profiles, available in the same finishes of the panel or prepared to be painted to match the ceiling. The new sliding system will be available from Autumn 2017.

Is it possible to identify a Company's DNA? Rimadesio thinks so and identified the following components of its DNA: Architecture, Technology, Ecology, Style.

Aware of the complexity of the meaning involved by the four words mentioned above, we decided to investigate it by inviting some experts in cultural fields related to design. The talks are scheduled in the Rimadesio Theatre in Milan during spring/fall 2017. We are almost sure that specifyng a DNA is a process that requires a clear vision about our mission, finely-tuned between purposes and results. By doing this, we aim to place a clear statement in the contemporary design debate.

Architecture
Beppe Finessi & Marco Romanelli talk

The space first of all: “interiors” lessons of Italian masters of architecture.
Rimadesio stands out, compared to other brands, for the peculiar care that it pays to interiors layouts instead of interiors accessories. Thus, it is not matter of filling a space with furniture pieces, rather defining the space itself. According to this vision, it arises a clear reference to the great season of Italian design masters like Franco Albini, Carlo Mollino, Ignazio Gardella, Nanda Vigo. Such references stand nowadays as a manifesto.

Beppe Finessi, architect, was born in Ferrara in 1966. Associated professor at the Politecnico di Milano, previously editor of Abitare and director of Inventario since 2010.
He edited exhibitions and publications concerning the work of Italian design masters like Munari, Mangiarotti, Castiglioni, Magistretti and Mendini, but also contemporary designers like Ulian, Iacchetti, Novembre.

Marco Romanelli, designer and critic, was born in Trieste in 1958. Editor of Domus and Abitare, among his writings, the most noticeable are the monographs on Gio Ponti, Joe
Colombo, Gino Sarfatti, Ico Parisi, Bruno Munari, Paolo Ulian and Umberto Riva. As a designer, with Marta Laudani, he worked for some of the most famous Italian Companies
like Driade, O luce, Glas and Fiam.

Ecology
Marco Belpoliti & Stefano Salis talk

100% eco - friendly new meanings and different involvements.
The environmental awareness, key component of Rimadesio's DNA, should be nowadays a “must”, eventually strengthened following the latest technological innovations, in any case isuch a theme cannot be ignored. As a matter of fact, the ecological approach is just partially shared, thus it is crucial, and almost vital, to talk about it. But this is not enough: it is also necessary to extend the use of the word ecology to new and unexpected fields.

Marco Belpoliti, born in Reggio Emilia in 1954, is professor at the Università di Bergamo. He published many books among which recently with Guanda: Primo Levi di fronte e di  profilo and La prova. He edited the Meridiano for the writings by Gianni Celati and, with Einaudi, Primo Levi's Opere complete. He contributes to several journals and magazines and he edits, with others, Riga (Marcos y Marcos) and doppiozero.com.

Stefano Salis, was born in Sant’Antioco in 1970. He is an expert in several fields like editing graphics, bibliophily, literature and design. Journalist for Il Sole 24 Ore, he writes
every week on the Domenicale's Mirabilia column about book covers, exhibitions or personalities. He is also editor-in-chief of Commenti & Inchieste section.


28 September
Technology
Angelo Cangelosi & Matteo Pirola talk

Man - robot: interactions: work in progress.
Technology for Rimadesio is a valuable tool, but it has to be silent. This means that Rimadesio never works with a selfish virtuosity, but finds the proper solutions following a
process of review of the goals achieved. Thus, technology is a key to preserve and improve Mankind. The aim of the latest technologies in every field, such as biomedicine, robotics, psychology and quantum physics, is to build our future.

Angelo Cangelosi, born in Alcamo in 1967, is Artificial Intelligence and Cognition professor and Director at the Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems at Plymouth University (UK). He recently published for MIT Press, with Matt Schlesinger, Developmental Robotics: From Babies to Robots. Since 2014 he is working on the projectTHRIVE (US Air Force Office of Science and Research).

Matteo Pirola, architect, PhD, was born in Cernusco sul Naviglio in 1975. He is professor of interior design and history of architecture at the Politecnico di Milano. He works as a critic, curator and researcher on contemporary art, design and architecture.


26 October
Style
Luca Solca & Michele Lupi talk

Colors and finishings: a parallel universe related to form and function.
Style, for long considered a negative word in the design debate, is nowadays positively referred to all the characteristics of the brand identity. Thus, the style can be defined as the combination of the project's key elements and their specific finishings. Such finishings are special tools that follow, but also anticipate, the designer's work. How is it possible to forecast colors and finishings trends?

Luca Solca, born in Milano in 1963, he is trained in Economics and works as a fashion analyst. Director of Exane, Luxury Goods Company, part of the group BNP Paribas. He also writes for the website The Business of Fashion.

Michele Lupi was born in Milano in 1965 and in 1994 worked as Rizzoli's correspondent in New York City. Since 1999 he is part of the GQ Italia team. In 2003 he founded Rolling Stone Italia. Editor-in-chief of GQ Italia (2006-2011), Icon and Flair (2014). In 2015 he launched the magazine Icon Design.

The industrial production, as we all know, requires an important energy consumption and nowadays, to avoid negative environmental impacts, many companies are using solar energy systems. Rimadesio goes further: the Company is not just producing the needed energy for its requirements, but it is able to store the energy surplus. As a matter of fact, it is possible to plan the industrial production but not the sunbeam intensity.  Therefore, the energy surplus to requirements is internally stored for later use. The solution is more efficient than the commonly-known and based on the energy surplus introduction into the electricity network and it following reuse. Rimadesio alternative, based on the innovative energy storage through lithium batteries of the latest generation, represents the most powerful industrial storage system on a large scale in Europe.

1,3 Mwp: photovoltaic system total power
100 kWh: lithium batteries storage capacity
1,5 million kWh: annual energy production
800 tons of CO2 not released into the atmosphere

Rimadesio participates in DeLightFuL, a visual and sensory exploration of daily living and contemporary space.
An exhibition-event created by Ciarmoli Queda Studio and Salone del Mobile to reflect on the new generations and investigate the way in which they live and conceive the domestic space. A fluid and cross-cutting space, on the edge between technology and archetypal living, public and private, basic needs and new desires to achieve creativity and to overturn the traditional partitions into functional areas.
An integral part of the project will be the short film d'auteur, directed by Matteo Garrone, who evaluates differently the design world, acting into a concrete and at the same time abstract reality through fantasy atmospheres and the simplicity of the tale.
