We Maria Lucia Colletti and Cristina Paladini and about a year we are trying to develop our creative reality named IMPRESS DESIGN.
Both have behind the study at the faculty 'of architecture and various specializations in the field of industrial design, sustainable design, restoration, photography, graphics and three-dimensional printing. L 'working experience in the fashion ateliers and architectural firms, where we occupied design and interior design, has provided us with the practical knowledge, technical and aesthetic to address the creation of objects of different nature and size .
Impress is a gesture that encompasses all phases of creating objects: form and function, imagine first, then designed and printed on the raw material.
Our brand Impress Design signature collections of jewelry and accessories home decor contemporary lines but with roots in the ideas, in the style of elegance that looks to the past for inspiration. The creations are all united by the light and transparency of Plexiglas, a mix of craftsmanship and innovation, and the result of a continuous experimentation of processes, materials and prodotti. Impress Design is the perfect fusion between the skills of the hands and creativity -ARTIGIANALITA ideas' and DESIGN.
The brand, created in 2013, has participated in various competitions of ideas, including the Maker Faire European Edition 2014 and in March 2015 we were selected to participate in May 29 to 31 at Italian Open design to be held 'in Trento.
What is Open Design? Since 2010 Italian Open Design is an exhibition-market on 'self-production: a mode of doing design in which the creative activity (design, thinking) is directly related to production. It is aimed at designers, stylists, artists, makers, craftsmen and small businesses with products that have solved, or at least suggested, the 'entire production chain. Open Design Italy select products from 'high value narrative recounting the know-how and favor the short chain, highlighting the collaborations between designers, businesses and artisans of the area. Open Design Italy has become a place where designer-power producers, artisans, entrepreneurs and industry actually meet through networking capillary encouraging moments and events designed to improve the project, a new partnership agreement and the construction of new distribution channels. Consolidated the bond and the international support that Open Design Italy provides exhibitors participating in the event. It is in fact an active partnership with the DMY, International Design Festival in Berlin, a collaboration with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, with the 'Italian embassy in Berlin, and in 2013 was born the partnership with the Design Biennial of Saint Etienne .
After the initial euphoria, for the successful selection to the exhibition and final phase of the competition, in the face of so many participants, we realized that the actual cost for participation would require an economic effort for us too challenging. The participation fee, the preparation for the exhibition, the production of the objects selected for the competition, and finally the production of brochures and information materials are all together a large rock to reach a goal long sought and hoped with commitment, dedication and enthusiasm. Your help, big or small, will help us to all this.
