What is a “virtual designer”? Ora Ito is the brand name of the designer Ito Morabito,born in 1977 in Marseille, France. He got kicked out of design school after only a year and took matters into his own hands – first by working for an architect and then for the shoe designer Roger Vivier. He was only 21 when he decided to create fake products for real brands. He designed ‘ads’ for a Louis Vuitton bag and a camouflage-patterned carrying case for a Mac laptop and launched them on the internet… as if they really existed. Pretty soon the big brands discovered his abuse of their name… and they loved it. This collection of imaginary items was viewed around the world and so emerged the very first virtual label.
In contemporary Paris, he spends his days in his studio creating real products for an impressive range of clients. and now for Paco Jaanson bathroom…..
PAU ROVIRAS & CARLOS TORRENTE
Pau Roviras and Carlos Torrente distinguish themselves in the industrial design world by their practical and common sense creations. Their many works with baths, particularly for the German company Duravit, the Spanish company Altro and the urban project for Santa Cole, confirm their belief that a minimum of parts equals maximum functionality.
Based on this premise, their designs for Supergrif’s d38 implement this equation and create products of authentic quality.
Simone Valsecchi, who lives in Italy and expresses that design is a passion for him, aims for continual innovations and differences in his graphical and design studies by his perspective that believes in the perpetuity of development and learning. With this understanding, designs that create value by association man and design are essential, for Valsecchi, who has awarded products.
The young Italian designer Simone Valsecchi draws attention by his plain and different style in his Eleganza, a synthesis of classical breezes and modern lines, the Valente vitrified series, which impress by their simplicity, and the Diamante washbasin designs, inspired by the sharp lines of the diamond.
It is difficult to associate the architect Toyo Ito to a specific trend, always observing the world for different ideas, his obsession for lightness and his fascination for the organic world has been transmitted to the bathroom.
Toyo Ito has designed for Altro a complete bathroom collection that is based on the flowing of water. The collections main element is a top made by Corian® of which the washbasin has the natural form of the erosion of water just like the sand at the sea.The tap is the element that transports water to fading concepts are used, which is something that Toyo Ito incorporates frequently in architecture.
The bathroom accessories and illumination allows us to travel to the geometric and cosmopolitan world. That urban and advanced touch, gives every day elements the required utility in the bathroom.
“The difference that existed between interior and exterior architecture of the 20th century is disappearing. There should be no limits as the buildings should be part of the ambience which in turn should penetrate into the buildings” Toyo Ito.
VENEZIANO & TEAM
Veneziano+Team design studio was created in 2008 after the meeting between Gianni Veneziano and Luciana Di Virgilio. A team of creative professionals and ‘conceptual thinkers’ with specific and complementary skills composes the studio. They interact throughout different design processes, such as restructuring, interior, industrial, graphic, exhibition and management design. The studio explores several fields of design, aiming to reach final solutions of strong emotional impact. Particular focus is devoted to integrated communication, in a unique process that includes creativity, passion, technology and strategic thinking. The philosophy of the studio assigns to the concept of ‘function’ the responsibility of defining shapes and structures, in a simple and intuitive way: maintaining a highly artistic approach, open to experimentation and contamination in a mix between experience and innovation. The work of the studio has been published on some of the most important design magazines and during local and international exhibitions. Moreover, the role of curators of exhibitions is to be highlighted, such as ‘Il Segno dei Designer’ (‘The Sign of Designers’) for Triennale Design Museum in Milan. Gianni Veneziano donated those works to Triennale museum, so that they have become part of its permanent collection.
We are from Torino, ITALY but we breathe the air of design and creativity of various latitudes and longitudes. We have designed and we still design products for companies based in Europe, Middle East and Asia.
When talking about ourselves, we like to use 3 words: project, creativity, innovation. The capacity of vision, the sensibility of catching new signals and knowing how to transform ideas into realizable proposals allow us to develop products and services which are in line with corporate strategies.
