Vintage at the Fuori Salone in Milan

The recent edition of the Fuorisalone in Milan has relaunched the vintage that reaffirms itself as a source of inexhaustible inspiration for various design workshops. We'd like to give you a few examples that we've been particularly impressed with.

Culture of all at once

Do you ever think how different life was just a decade ago without any smartphones? Without realising it, in a very short period of time we became cyborgs! Why? Because nowadays leaving home in the morning without a phone is like leaving without a hand: in substance, the phone today is, already, an extension of our body.

The value of uniqueness

We like to travel and explore different countries and cultures, entering their daily lives, discovering the customs of their peoples, immersing ourselves in the history of places more or less known that have witnessed the evolution of man in that local dimension.

Christmas tree miracle

Trees are a resource in continuous evolution: they have the ability to feed themselves and regenerate themselves with the sole help of light and water. The wood they produce has always been man's best ally and has contributed to our survival since the Stone Age. When it is masterfully worked by man, it can produce very different but always useful elements, such as paper, energy, some fabrics, some medicines and clearly many pieces of furniture that surround us.

We analyzed the market prices of some iconic design objects still in production, and then compared their prices with their "vintage" predecessors: the outcome of our investigation was less obvious than you might think.

Why intOndo

intOndo is the result of a period of study on the circular economy that we have come to, aware of the need to move from linear systems (take - make - consume - throw away) to circular systems where products are designed to regenerate, be recycled or reused without generating waste.
