Q"Is Italian design still leading in European design, should we keep coming back to Italy, to Milan...? What do you think about Italian design right now?"
A - (Nguyen)"Design is connected to real products and people here. In a lot of other places design is something created only by magazines and reviews and not part of real life. In Italy it's for real, the design is more for people, and for people's everyday living."
A - (Noto)"Another point is that we will be able to answer this question in 5, 6 years, because in Italy and the rest of Europe, all the factories are moving. Before, there would be factories and manufacturers here in the Brianza area, so design was strictly related to factories and to industry. So in Italy, for example you don't have the design of computers because we are not skilled in technology and therefore not competitors in that industry. So that's why you don't find the design of computers here in Italy. You see more industrial design. We will see after all the new changes if design is going to stay here in Italy or if we have to move and open a new studio in the Far East for example."
