NABA takes part to Fuorisalone Digital as a Cultural Partner presenting a selection of the best Design projects developed by students within the Design Area curated by Claudio Larcher, Design Area Leader.

Starting from the question, “What does studying design mean today?” the projects presented at Fuorisalone Digital focus on the different aspects of product design, keeping in mind the importance of  technology and research on the many possible uses of materials.

FABER, a final project by the NABA student Luca Magistrali, conceived under the guidance of Dante Donegani, NABA Design Advisor, is a manifesto of the link between craftsmanship and design, a simple set of tools (hammer and screwdriver) designed to deliver into homes, the universal tale of “handmade”. 
Nida Cin and Gulcan Selcuk, NABA MA in Product Design students, under the guidance of the lecturer Terri Pecora, developed LILY MIX AND MATCH COLLECTION, a bathroom design project inspired by vintage aesthetics including a sink, tap and base that allows a complete customisation.
Lastly, two more final projects conceived by the students of the BA in Design, under the supervision of Claudio Larcher, are presented. 
SEI UNO by Andrea Cappelli is a collection of modular and customisable objects that comprises 61 3D printed elements to help children with autism, or with manual disabilities, learning to perform simple gestures of everyday life independently. DOTS by Chiara Torterolo and Luca Vernieri originates from the idea to reinterpret the iconic studded surface flooring designed by Franco Albini and Franca Helg in 1962 for Milan's underground. The output of the project is a collection of furnishing accessories, comprising three small tables, three containers and a console, to offer a different perspective on this material’s usage parameters, rethinking its dynamics and context. 

NABA also takes part to Fuorisalone TV, the video streaming portal that give access to every aspect of design and project culture.
The on demand content presented by the Academy include FILOTEA by Elena Tamburini, a video storytelling about the collection that comprehends four domestic objects and the dynamics of affectivity in elderly individuals, and AGO a technological and connected fly fishing kit based on the idea to innovate the design of the fishing equipment to radically change the way this activity is conducted, that remained unchanged for centuries. AGO, the final project by students Edoardo Trombin and Giorgia Salamanca, was awarded with the Critics Award at the 23rd edition of Targa Bonetto.
Video content will be available on demand with free access for the next few months.
