MD Workshop

Lithos publishing collection

 

In recent years, internationally renown architects and designers brought stone materials, from a status of conventional formalization to heart of their design innovation, developing with originality themes of product design, stone exhibit design and resuming research within a particular sector of architecture associated with the temporary exhibition that in modern tradition constituted an emblematic testimony of line of thought of the Masters; the reference to Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion is symbolic and representative.
Recently, designers such as Kengo Kuma, Claudio Silvestrin, Michele De Lucchi, Alberto Campo Baeza, Manuel Aires Mateus, Kjetil Traedal Thorsen of  Snoetta Architects, and Grafton Architects designed the exhibition pavilions of major Italian manufacturers of stone, creating temporary stone "works-concepts", but with very high innovative and visionary value.
MD Lab actively participated in the design-driven process and in the creation of the pavilions, promoting and brokering the relations between international architects and Italian companies, defining the development of projects and cultural contents, implementing a dynamic and innovative cross-media communication played between print and digital format.
The Lithos collection is an integral part of this new brokerage process between designers, universities and the business world. The publishing project, for Libria, returns such experiences - within the competitive global economic scenario - through a series of volumes (in Italian and English), under the care of university researchers and addressed to an audience of scholars, designers, and entrepreneurs.
