Ecodesign ____ 03/2006 --> 12/2008

Master degree: “DESIGN OF ECOCOMPATIBLE PRODUCTS” (Design del prodotto ecocompatibile), Politecnico di Torino, Faculty of Architecture I
Title: “Household appliances: an integrated system. Changing the rules." / "un sistema integrato. Cambiare le regole"
grade: 110/110 with Right of Publication
Advisor Luigi Bistagnino
Team Berardi Veronica - Lazzaro Cinzia - Mancuso Manuela - Uccelli Adriana

Thinking and planning a new approach to the manufacturing system based on the “Zero Emission” concept while keeping the “human” at the centre of the project.
See My work

* The goal of ECODESIGN course takes the form of training a designer who can set up and competently manage the activity of industrial product design without emissions. The aim is to develop a culture of design in such a way that interest in innovation is related to the larger vision of an approach to the new production system, including also the humanistic components and positioning the man as project focus. The ecological requests of products and the theme of environmental protection, which companies now face as a result of increasingly restrictive national and international regulations, should be regarded as ever present, irrespective of the themes examined, since they apply to all human and industrial activities. Level 2 aims, in particular, to train designers who are expert in the design of ecological products in support of driving sectors, while at the same time being innovative in terms of ecodesign. An example of this is the components sector namely both as the “hard” part of industrial products and as constructive module of building system

Industrial Design ____ 09/2002 --> 03/2006

Bachelor degree in Industrial Design - Politecnico di Torino, Faculty of Architecture I, Industrial design Studies
Title "Accessible Design: supplies for the house kitchen"
Grade: 110/110 cum laude

AdvisorProf. Arch. Claudio Germak

Designing an accessible kitchen for everybody, including people with special needs. See My work

*The training goal at this level consists of training an operator who is familiar with the basic themes of the subject, capable of mediating the reasons for research, the market and production, or in other words acting as a working interface between the designer and work. Among the numerous possible forms of teaching design, the 1 st level gives preference to the cultural preparation of a new professional figure, whose expertise focuses more on their interpretation and management for the purpose of realisation rather than merely proposing new design contents. The possibility of using workshops for real and virtual modelling supposes that this new professional figure can be inserted in the workplace in a clearly operative capacity, also helping to fulfil the requirements of expert modellers and prototype designers expressed by the business sector.
