Research, innovation, product culture and testing of new solutions in the meanings, forms and materials. Are the values that have always builds the business philosophy of Foscarini and who find themselves unchanged in its commitment to culture. A commitment represented, once again, in collaboration with the editions of Art and Architecture of the Venice Biennale, which Foscarini is the official sponsor of the 2008 and that is renewed today for the fifth consecutive year.
Now in its 13a edition, the International Architecture Exhibition "Common Ground”, Directed by David Chipperfield (29 August / 25 November 2012), pays homage to a vital and interconnected culture, confirming its vocation for a dialogue open to all conceptual areas. An opening entirely consistent with Foscarini's strategy, which speaks to a heterogeneous audience, linked both to the world of design and culture and art, through innovative forms and channels and choosing unconventional communication opportunities.
Foscarini in fact it is not new to initiatives linked to interdisciplinary fields, placing itself on a research level and opening up to stimuli from other sectors. Among the initiatives we can mention INVENTARIO, a totally independent publishing project, promoted and supported by Foscarini and directed by Beppe Finessi, which, using original critical contributions, casts an enlightened and free look on the design, architecture and art scene. This attention was also expressed with the support for the exhibition
'Making light. Candles between Art and Design '- April 5 / May 21, 2012 - organized in collaboration with the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milan and Inventario.
The presence of the Foscarini 13. International Architecture Exhibition will materialize this year with evocative atmosphere of light. Made with different proposals, in composition or in the form of spectacular installations, will be disseminated within and historical sites of the Biennale in the area dedicated to relaxation.
