6 designers take on some of the world's toughest redesign challenges
from The New York Times
In the Architecture School at Milan Polytechnic in the late 1980s, to lecture halls packed to the gills like a Milan A.C. championship final, the great Achille Castiglioni would extol redesign as an indispensable duty of any professional designer. In his view, anything was fair game in a process of progressive update and refinement carried out for the benefit of the entire society. Castiglioni’s own work teemed with examples: the makeover of the traditional three-legged iron French cafe table, into a foldable enameled-steel number that could be hung on a wall to save space; the upgrade of his own Mezzadro stool, to accommodate the release of new tractor seats; the complete reinvention of the light switch for the Italian market.
