Andrea Maragno


Design + Zen, and funcool!

On 16th March at 6:30pm Fabrica will host a lecture by Andrea Maragno, designer and Zen observant. In his lecture, Maragno will take the two worlds closer, trying to answer questions like: what is the relation between design and Zen? Does it exist at all? How can we get out of the limits that surround us? How can I create a new vision? Zen does something revolutionary: it highlights every single moment through a non-conceptual observation of thinking and reality.

In 2002 it entered the competition “Opos Under 35” with “RosAria,” disposable rosary beads made from bubblewrap, the studio’s first official project which soon became part of a number of permanent design collections both in Italy and abroad.
