The volume will be previewed on Wednesday 18th April from 16:00 to 18:30 at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, at the Lithos Design booth (Pav. 24, booth #C11), together with designer Raffaello Galiotto.
The story of Raffaello Galiotto’s journey in the field of stone design and his fortunate meeting with Lithos Design are the focus of the volume by Veronica Dal Buono, a researcher at Ferrara University Faculty of Architecture, which opens the ‘Lithos’ Series for the Librìa publishing house, now in its fifth volume, on the subject of Stone Design. The author investigates the designer’s creative path through essays and interviews and, especially, through his special relationship with stone, which he calls « an extraordinary, unique material, the matrix of absolute masterpieces », to which design must offer « obsequious respect ». Galiotto’s path is one of research and powerful innovation, carried out in complete harmony with this company from Vicenza, which has allowed him to explore and develop the combination of Stone Design and technology.
The work not only offers an analysis of his journey through style, but focuses on extremely current themes that are strictly linked to the value of design for company competitiveness, indicating the need for a greater dialogue between industry, the design world and the world of research, through interaction with university institutions.
