Most recently, we met with a reallegend in the world of design - by Giulio Cappellini himself. The maestro told what the interior should be like, gave advice to novice designers and revealed the secret of which film he really likes Giulio Cappellini One of the most successful architects today, the founder of the Italian brand Cappellini, as well as an influential figure in the field of world design. His works have been recognized as icons of style and are now presented in the collections of the main museums of modern art - from Paris to New York, from Rome to London. Giulio once gave a "ticket to life" to many of today's design stars, such as Mark Newson and Marcel Wanders, Ora Ito and Tom Dixon, Jasper Morrison and Shiro Kuramata, Fabio Novembre and the Burulleck brothers. Together they have been delighting the public with fresh ideas and conceptual solutions for more than a decade. - How do you manage to create masterpieces that do not age morally for so many years? - My main idea is that we need to create products that will not become one-time bestsellers, but will constantly be at the peak of popularity. This is what I am doing now - producing modern collections of classic design pieces. We have been striving for success for years, collaborating with designers from all over the world. And my real passion is to make beautiful and useful objects that are the right answer to the needs of people. At the same time, my work makes them dream! - What should be in the interior today?- Modern home and office interiors must represent the culture of the owner and therefore must obey strict guidelines. The materials for the floor and walls are very important, as are the colors or lighting, and the furniture must be fundamental. A great example when the sofa resembles a beautiful painting. - Which room can you call your favorite? “I think the most important room in the house is the living room. First, it is the center of the house where all family members get together, but at the same time it is a public space where friends meet. Therefore, with proper arrangement, the living room can also reveal our personality. - What should a designer be able to do?In what direction should he develop? - The main quality of any designer is passion, passion and passion again. Although, of course, you can't do without professionalism, so you need to be able to make a beautiful sketch. But it is not worthwhile to engage in creation alone, it is necessary to combine high technology and traditional craft, and also focus on the entire process - from the birth of an idea to the production and presentation of your creation to the public, so that the product eventually gets to the market. - What films do you like? - In films, I look at interiors, at their elegance. For example, in A Single Man by American designer and director Tom Ford, the protagonist lives in a very beautiful and sophisticated house.
