ADI - Associazione per il disegno industriale

Since 1956, ADI - Associazione per il Disegno Industriale (Association for the Industrial Design) brings together professionals, researchers, teachers, critics, journalists around the main topics of design: project, energy consumption, recycling and training. ADI has a leading role in the development of the industrial design as a cultural and economic phenomenon. About Us Its purpose is to promote and implement the most conducive conditions to the design for goods and services, through the cultural debate, the dialogue with the institutions and the provision of services. According to ADI, design is the culturally aware project, it is the interface between the individual and collective demand and the producers' supply. The association is involved into products design, services design, visual communication, packaging, interior design and in the design for the environment. Design is the way to create a relationship between products and users through reserch, innovation and engineering. It gives functionality, social values and cultural meaning to the goods and services distributed on the market.

Argenteria Dabbene

Argenteria Dabbene since 1939 has is own workshop and showroom in the heart of Brera rappresenting the luxury and the Italian handmade style


Dilmos was founded in 1980 as an exhibition space for designer furniture. The articles selected were intended to be the most representative examples of modern design, side by side with furniture made by firms representing the contemporary style of the eighties. There was also an area for holding exhibitions and the result was that Dilmos started interacting more directly with the world of design, personally choosing which designers to work with and their articles. This commitment was the fruit of a growing awareness of the value and poetical significance of objects: a profound interest that led Dilmos to deal essentially with articles distinguished by a strong communicative and narrative force. Since 1985, when an exhibition dedicated to Alessandro Mendini was held, Dilmos has increasingly tended to choose designers and articles that fully express a philosophy where each piece of furniture is a representation and at the same time a key to the designerÌs deeper thoughts, a way of communicating and interacting with the world. Hence an object that communicates and not merely functional but not just a symbolic object-subject, a mute emblem of our hyper-communicating society either: this is the aim of DilmosÌs research, which is constantly working, debating and striving to outdo itself. No uniform stylistic design can be seen in the articles found at Dilmos; the consistency cannot be seen in the designers whose work has been displayed over these years but rather in the interactions and the mutual desire to treat the articles animating a home or a space as elements that virtually receive its thoughts and, through their great narrative ability, transmit its poetry and intentions. The languages of the designers are therefore many, because the gestures and thoughts of each one are many, but that does not mean that they are incommunicable. This is the thinking behind some of Dilmos Ìs experiences while working to make it possible for languages and poetries to communicate with each other

Lucio Iezzi

DESSEL was established in 1996 by the architect Lucio Iezzi. Dessel - short for "design selection" - operates in both cultural and productive fields. In the cultural field, DESSEL is involved in the organization of presentations to the public of design research and productions , also on behalf of Public Institutions. The most important among those was: "ARGENTI ITALIANI SELEZIONE DESIGN". Twenty-two exhibitions were held in museums of Europe, Latin America and The United States over five years with the presence of 125.000 visitors, the publication of 105 articles and the broadcasting of 39 television programs. This activity was carried out thanks to the collaboration with the Cultural Relations Management of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy and it presented a selection of Italian precious modern silverware works created during the past 30 years and designed by over 70 authors. During the last few years DESSEL has extended its cultural interest to the field of jewellery and goldsmith's ware, involving Italian factories and designers to create new works that represent the innovative stylistic research in this sector. As for the productive activity, DESSEL manufactures in its own workshops the works - mainly silverware and jewellery - designed by Lucio Iezzi: over 1500 original models catalogued. Other productions concern Alluminium fittings and objects for the home, with a special experimentation with lamps and illuminating objects. DESSEL also operates as a professional study of planning for its customers.
