Giulio Cappellini has presented Cappellini: A Spasso Per la Casa (Cappellini: Round About the Home), a special showcase of 10 thesis projects which explore the possibilities of storage within the home by presenting prototype designs for new approaches.
Each project has been developed by a third-year student of Product Design and Interior Design, and was commissioned as the result of a partnership between IED (European Institute of Design) and Italian furniture brand Cappellini.
Although the products have decisive identities of their own, they are capable of blending into a variety of settings, introducing a new voice into the choir of home furnishings: a new approach to storage and tidiness that derives from a balanced combination of custom design, as in the finest traditions of Cappellini, and advanced technologies.
