Day two at Cersaie 2009 see Ali take a trip out to Bisazza headquarters in Vicenza.
October 10th, 2009
I have been booked to do a walk-in tour at the Bisazza headquarters. They chose not to exhibit at Cersaie this year but to arrange for a bus to take people to their headquarters in Vicenza.
I didn’t realise until the morning it was a two hour drive but after walking all day yesterday I wasn’t ready to complain. As we entered the property all I could think was ‘WOW!’.
The entrance impressed me, so what was to come I can not describe to you. I would rather call their headquarters an art gallery – well it is – a mosaic art gallery.
I was given the grand tour, enjoyed a buffet lunch with a few staff members (true Italian hospitality) and then I listened to a presentation given to architects and designers about Bisazza – the company’s background, philosophy, identity, values of the brand and inspiring projects they have completed.
Overall, an inspiring company who has design at its core and strives to achieve an amazing mix of fashion with design and flair. I now want a house with mosaic everything!’¨’¨’¨

Sometimes the most evolved designs are those left incomplete. When conceptualising the new Suncorp headquarters in Sydney, Geyer worked to the idea of ‘designing to 80 per cent’. The result is a radical take on workplace flexibility. While the building caters to its occupants in the present, it comprehensively avoids dictating their needs going into the future.
