Indesign Group’s Ali Festa hits the ground running on the first day of the Cersaie Fair 2009.
October 11th, 2009
I had never been to the Cersaie fair in Bologna previously, so I was itching to get going and explore all there was to the wonderful world of bathroom furniture and tile ceramics. ’¨’¨
Luckily my limited grasp of Italian led me to the right bus stop and the fair was the talk of the town so there was no confusion of where to get off.
I had arranged to meet a friend to show me around the first day to ensure I was not lost among the crowds. Wow… the place is enormous.
First product that caught my eye for the day – Plavis Design wooden bath. They also had the accessories to go with it – basin and shower head.
I didn’t believe a wooden bath could been done in so much style. Until I saw the Rapsel bath.
Although wood was not a prominent feature these two baths definitely caught my eye! Overall this day was tiring yet inspiring. It’s clear to see that, despite the current market situation, this fair iss not going to be a disappointment. Go home, Ali, and get ready for Day Two…’¨

With all this buzz around ‘human focused’ design, architects and designers are having to think far more creatively around how to best integrate ‘responsiveness’ into workplaces – especially if your client is a rapid live news outlet. For New Zealand firm Warren and Mahoney, the design of Television New Zealand’s new Auckland headquarters was driven by their interest in the ‘power of people’ and the translation of their collective behaviours into the built form.
