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.

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”.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
