Following its visionary approach, Domus Academy is now launching a new cycle of lectures called Disruptive Patterns.

On Thursday 19th, it will be held the first lecture titled Lighting Spaces: Articulation and Complexity. Paolo Rizzatto and Dante Donegani will be the guests in this occasion. Two of the most important italian designers will explore their path, their methodology and which were their inspirations to design some of the most visionary lamps of our century. Starting with Paolo Rizzatto’s book “Esercizi di Metodo”, the lecture will tell about the works to reveal the articulation and the complexity of a method, highlighting what Rizzatto defines as the core of a project, which is the human being.

Paolo Rizzatto, architect, is famous for the objects designed from the 60’s to today. He designed for Alias, Arteluce, Artemide, Fiam and many more. He gives courses and conferences in several universities: Columbia University NewYork, Politecnico di Milano, Cranbrook Center Detroit, Washington University Saint Louis, Architecture Institute Moscow, Università degli Studi Palermo, IUAV Venezia. His works are included in different museums and foundations: Triennale Milano, Museum of Modern Art New York, Victoria and Albert Museum Londra, Museo della Scienza e della Tecnica Milano, Musée des Arts Decoratifs Parigi.

Dante Donegani is a pre-eminent architect and designer. Donegani has designed home and office products for Isuzu, Memphis, Stildomus, Luceplan, Edra, Kelebek, Rotaliana, Radice, and Viceversa. He was director of the Master in Design degree at Domus Academy and joined NABA’s faculty as course leader of the MA in Product Design. He also lectures at universities in various countries. He has designed showrooms and art exhibitions in venues such as Casa Buonarroti in Florence, Fondazioni Cini in Venice, the Correr Museum in Venice, Palazzo Reale in Milan, and the Triennale di Milano.
