    Lecture: Design as Functional Art-From the applied arts to nowadays

    Speaker: Luigi Laurenzi

    Language: English with Chinese Translation


    Starting from VITRA chairs applied by Paola Pivi in her “Ball” series, Mr. Laurenzi will give a lecture on how art and design marry.

Laurenzi will show today’s design for different reason going toward art which he called “design as functional art”.
