Salone del mobile 2006 [Milano] > Promosedia. The Present Future
Thursday, April 6, 2006 9:27:17 AM
Promosedia presents work by six promising young designers on the chair of the future. Chosen by three exceptional godfathers/talent scouts - Marco Romanelli, Konstantin Grcic and Jasper Morrison. They are Polka (Marie Rahm and Monica Singer), Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram, Klaus Hackl and André Klauser, Front (Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken, Anna Lindgren and Katja Sävström) and Donata Paruccini. An exhibition, curated by Romanelli, shows the fruits of their labours, varied in terms of both approach and results. Designers invited for the next edition of the competition have already begun work - Ed Carpenter, Tete Knecht, Cristiana Giopato and Christopher Coombes, Shane Schneck, Philippe Bestenheider, Karen Chekerdjian. This time chosen by the Campana brothers, Patricia Urquiola and of course Marco Romanelli, curator of the overall event. At least two advantages lie in a competition of this kind – to try and invent something new regarding such a difficult theme, being so classic, as that of the chair, with an eye on design and another on production. And something else not to be taken for granted these days, to demonstrate that there is no lack of young talent in the world of design.
