Throughout his career Alessandro Caronia has designed several household/office items, that have helped develop his methodology and approach to small scale design issues.
The preliminary design activities are: an analysis of the functions; the symbolic and iconic values which may be associated with the product; the material and technology options available and their selection. The design idea must establish, in an original synthesis, a balanced connection between the aforementioned elements. Finally, the detailed project and prototype manufacturing are developed.
Here we present a selection of project images:
