Since two years Giulio Cappellini has been Art Director of Alcantara. With the new collection, developed in collaboration with Paola Navone, the Italian material manufacturer presents new possible applications of the Alcantara material in the field of interior and funiture design. Enjoy!
Italian design manufacturer Cappellini's art director, Giulio Cappellini, described by British design studio BarberOsgerby as 'the single most important man in design'
This year’s London Design Festival, now in its eighth year, was not only bigger than ever, it was also more international in complexion, with a significant number of non-British brands exhibiting in their permanent showrooms, in pop-up spaces and at the somewhat-past-its-sell-by-date 100% Design fair. Part of this foreign presence, but by no means a new one in relation to the UK, came in the form of Cappellini’s exhibition at the V&A Museum, which reflected on the manufacturer’s collaborations with British designers for over two decades. Architonic was there to talk to the company’s art director and creative-talent scout, the ever dapper Giulio Cappellini.
