Tecnargilla and IED Joined Forces

The 24th Tecnargilla – International Exhibition of Technologies and Supplies for the Ceramics and Brick Industries (22–26 September 2014) witnessed a strengthening of ties with Design students from Milan’s Istituto Europeo di Design (European Design Institute – IED) aimed at sponsoring ceramic material research projects and possible future applications.

As part of Tecnargilla, students from IED Milan/IT have undertaken a series of projects based on the notion of wellness, in the sense of essential condition for improving the quality of daily life, taking into account aspects such as microclimate, noise, lighting, hygiene and pollution: the result is a concept of home for Interior Design students and a city park for Product Design students. Both works, that live together in harmony, have been developed whilst fully respecting sustainability and man’s primary needs, as well as emerging ones, the result of an approach to constantly-changing daily life showing ever-increasing concern for aspects such as the desire to socialise, feel safe in a public place and share space with and live alongside new cultures. The challenge was therefore to shake off these habits by using ceramics and their physical and chemical properties in order to improve the quality of our surroundings.
