Brand New Youth Design Day 2018 participants!

Let’s go on discovering new Youth Design Day in Japan 2018 participants. Those of today are two groups and two single designer.

All the four design projects are linked, even if in different ways, to the “Sustainable Interior Design” theme we talked about a little while ago.

We will talk extensively about their projects in a few articles. Now, instead, we are focusing on the partipants. Let’s start from the single one:

 

Christian Carlino

Christian Carlino

Christian is 33 years old and he’s from Italy. He earns a Degree in Information Technology and Web Design.

Here what he told us about his project:

What inspired me can be found in the power that the energy fields and the frequencies have on us as human beings. Every vibration, every color, every object, whatever is present on this planet influences our lives.

 

Alessandro Azzolini

Alessandro Azzolini

Alessandro is 20 and comes from Italy.  He studies Architectural Design at Politecnico di Milano.

Below his words describing the design concept:

The concept originates both from the idea of regenerating waste in a way to get a newly usable product and also from the do-it-yourself movement.
In every city, especially in industrial or retail areas, lots of […] are thrown away after their single use. I wanted to do something with them and give them a new life before they are headed to the recycler.

 

Emanuele Matteucci, Giovanni Silvestri and Michele Tunzi

Michele Tunzi

Emanuele, Giovanni and Michele are all 20 years old and come from Italy. They are university colleagues and study Design of the Industrial Product at Alma Mater Studiorum in Bologna.

These are the words they told us while talking about their project:

This way we save resources both on material, because there is no waste, and industrial treatments.
Furthermore, we built […] starting from a scrap of metal found as a reject in a mechanical workshop, therefore we can say that it is 100% recycled from other processes’ waste.

 

Dario Ivone and Monir Kazemian

Dario Ivone and Monir Kazemian

Dario and Monir are a couple. He is 28 years old and Italian, she is 31 and Iranian. Dario has a Degree in Management Engineering, while Monir a Degree in Architectural Design.

This is what they told us about the project they have developed together:

The elegant geometry and cutting leading to characterize the three shapes, giving new interpretation and defining them as a set of design icon which will elevate the atmosphere of your place and would give your room a modern vibe.

Sustainable Interior Design: one of the main themes of The Youth Design Day 2018

Within the numerous design projects we have collected for The Youth Design Day in Japan 2018 edition, there are some which can be categorized under the theme of “Sustainable Interior Design”. But how can Interior Design be sustainable?

Sustainable interior design creates interior spaces using design principles such as functionality, accessibility, and aesthetics and expands the focus to include environmental considerations.

For example, sustainable design projects are influenced by such factors as planning efficient use of space, choosing materials with low environmental impacts, and reducing energy consumption, pollution, and waste.

Sustainable interior design aim is that to balance aesthetics and functionality with choices that reduce the environmental impact of their designs.

From a sustainability perspective, it’s very important to pick materials and products with the lowest environmental impact. Organic materials (e.g. wood, wool, natural stone) seem the obvious choice, but we mustn’t forget that natural resources need to be treated responsibly. Choose materials that are quickly renewable (such as fast-growing bamboo), and are extracted in an environmentally responsible way.

The environmental impact of materials and products must be evaluated throughout their entire life cycle — from extraction, production, transportation and processing, all the way to how they are discarded after use.

Interior designers have a lot of power in their hands when it comes to waste reduction, and at the same time, a big responsibility to act sustainably. The planet’s precious resources are limited, so the mentality of discarding products as soon as they go out of style and replacing them with those that are currently trendy is no longer justifiable.

Fortunately, the world of design is becoming increasingly aware of the need for sustainable thinking and is experiencing a growing interest in sustainable trends, such as recycling, upcycling and repurposing. Instead of discarding ‘’old-fashioned’’ objects while they are still functional, designers can (and should) come up with creative ways to give them a new life.
