(jana zielinski) This year’s Designblok will also host the traditional Milky Way of Central European Design exhibition in which Austrian designer Patrick Rampelotto shall participate.
In the Superstudio Corso of Designblok, he will present a collection of brand new silicone lamps, cutlery, and the \\\\\\\"PLIC & SYNERGIE\\\\\\\" collection of glass that has been manufactured in the Czech Republic. His FORTUNA installation will appear in the form of trophies - i.e. it will be inspired by future classical trophy cups.
Thirty-year-old Patrick Rampelotto is Italian by birth. Although he has a degree in law, he continued his studies at the Vienna University of Applied Arts in the Department of Industrial Design under Bořek Šípek and Ross Lovegrove. Apart from glass and lights, he also designs furniture. I personally prefer the brilliant lamps inspired by the afore-mentioned trophies. Come have a look.
