  • INVENTARIO 04 Everything is a project cm 21 x 27 | 160 pages | paperback | 10,00 € English and Italian texts ISBN 978-88-7570-340-0

  • An editorial initiative created and managed by Beppe Finessi, edited by Corraini, promoted and supported by Foscarini.

A gym that trains you to ‘see better’, to capture the strength of ideas involved at each end of the design scale.

This is how Beppe Finessi presents the fourth issue of Inventario, the bookzine designed as a combination of book and magazine to present everything linked to research, innovation and creativity with an independent slant. The theme of the new issue is “knowing how to see”: something that is particularly important in this day and age, one marked by a fluidity of awareness. Removing preconceived ideas and deeply-rooted certainties allows one to focus on problems, answers and solutions in order to discover different kinds of knowledge. “Knowing how to see” differently, breaking the rules and re-drawing the boundaries of contemporary design from within is what Joe Velluto, Dominic Wilcox and Anselmo Tumpić have in common. “Near Future”, one of the magazine’s many features is dedicated to these designers. Others include “Exercises in Style”,”A Practical Encyclopaedia for construction” and “Short Notes”, together with “Other Cases, Other Houses” which continues the investigation into the many interpretations of living that began in previous issues of the magazine. The theme of vision is taken up once more in the section entitled “Specchi” (Mirrors). Mirrors reveal the truth, but are also a source of deception, through spatial illusion and multiple, inverted images. They have been the subject of philosophical reflection and art throughout the ages, from Brunelleschi to Pistoletto and Le Corbusier. Inventario is a unique editorial project, which acts as a mouthpiece for Foscarini’s values. The company is present only at the beginning and the end of the publication, interpreted by a different photographer each time. The person responsible for the pictures that open and close the fourth issue of Inventario is Swiss photographer Lena Amuat interpreting the lamp Binic by Ionna Vautrin and Havana designed by Jozeph Forakis.
