On Thursday, July 13, 2017 John Cabot University welcomed architect Piero Angelo Orecchioni to the Continuing Education course “Marketing and Digital Strategy” for a lecture on brand identity in the fashion and design industries. Piero Angelo Orecchioni is the owner of Studio 63 Architecture and Design, a Florence-based company specialized in interior design for retail venues, hospitality structures, and offices. Orecchioni presented the concept of brand identity and how to develop it in order to unlock a company’s full potential in the market. Orecchioni focused especially on the luxury goods sector, where the unique character of a company’s identity is essential to its “up-to-dateness.” Orecchioni defined this as the ability to be “contemporary” while maintaining a close connection with the past. To conclude, Orecchioni presented one of his last works with Marioni Furniture Company, the collection Notorious, where he drew inspiration from the Hollywood postwar atmosphere. He designed 300 furniture pieces and gave them actors’ names from Alfred Hitchcock’s movies. In this way, he was able to increase the value of the objects and make them special for customers, while creating an atmosphere around the brand identity. Orecchioni’s current narrative and project is La Récréation, an attempt to create a brand out of his personal story through self-analysis, reminiscing about significant anecdotes from his life and the emotions connected to them.
Today at Villa Strozzi will be inaugurated the event JUST IN A MOMENT curated by Stefano Follesa where pieces designed by Piero Angelo Orecchioni for Marioni srl will be shown. Someone says “life is just a moment”. Art can seize that moment which is now and will not be anymore. The Latin expression “hic et nunc” is expression of the sense of helplessness and ineffability of the human being, compared to something that flees, which is here and now, and that “just in a moment” will vanish. Art has the ability to make a moment immortal. Just a moment wants to be a reflection on the concept of time read from different cultural point of views (Italy and China for the first) and through the sensitivity of different authors and different disciplines. Paintings, photographs, graphic works, sculptures, design objects will give a non-exhaustive but complex lecture about how each artist can seize the moment and make it final.
With the right preparation and a good understanding of what is required for ISO 9001 audit, next Monday MARIONI srl will be under survey by DNV-GL Auditor. At this stage it is vital to have someone who has experience of implementing Quality Management Systems and who knows what is needed to maintain ISO 9001 certification. Vittoria Marioni is the Quality Manager in charge of the issue. The auditor will check that our written Quality Management Systems meet the requirements of the ISO 9001 Standard and match what we are actually doing and highlight any areas of deficiency and potential improvement of the system. Any organisation should have a clear idea what benefits it will gain by achieving ISO 9001 Certification. You have to be prepared to incorporate the Quality Management Systems into every area of the business. All staff must be aware of what is expected of them and where their areas of responsibility lie, in order to maintain ISO 9001 Certification.
We announce that we will be exhibiting at the forthcoming INDEX Qatar 13-15 November 2017. The State of Qatar now presents arguably the largest untapped business opportunity for interior, fit-out and construction suppliers of any market in the Middle East. Already the wealthiest nation on the planet and one of its fastest growing economies, Qatar is quickly diversifying away from its traditional reliance on hydrocarbons and focusing on large-scale infrastructure development, real estate, tourism and services. INDEX Qatar will brings, project leads, procurement directors, architects and designers from this enormous range of projects to source the new suppliers and products that they need to build and furnish this intensive period of new development.
Today we had an interesting meeting with Mr. Seb Suh from LG regarding a possible partnership for the introduction of OLED in our lighting collection. LG Display offers LG OLED light panels with cutting-edge OLED light technology creating a new standard in light quality with the intention to take advantage of their OLED display manufacturing systems and know-how. Investments have been made to proceed with 5th generation production systems, which will begin in the 4th quarter of 2017. LG OLED light panels offer a soothing source of light with breakthrough technology. The innovative flexibility of the panels along with the comfortable and even distribution of light from OLED light panels will surely change your ‘light-style’. OLED is a new form of lighting technology, an ‘area light source’, that offers totally uniform, smooth and visually comfortable light with low glare and shadow, thereby, reducing eye fatigue. LG Display OLED lights are an excellent option for the lighting designers and architects looking to implement aesthetic appeal with design flexibility. The OLED panels are safe to handle as they produce very low heat (<35°C). This attribute allows people to be in close proximity to the panels without experiencing any discomfort.

The great changes happening in that historical period gave birth to deep thoughts about humans possibility of expression especially focusing on tools that modernity offered. Industry and new media promoted the serial reproducibility of the object which, after the first ugly attempts to imitate the glorious past, put its attention on beauty, becoming the manifesto of a new aesthetics and defining its constitution. Simone Micheli Architect performed, from the 5th to 10th of December 2016 , at Galerie Carrè Dorè in Principality of Monaco, an exhibition which exposed these principles and that, taking to extreme the contemporary design concept, offered to the public a different vision of it, linked with luxury dimension. The growth of the contrast among art and design has been expressed by a peculiar and detailed selection of paradigmatic works. In that occasion MARIONI presented the URANO table lamp, an artistic ceramic glazed human head lighted with strip led. The item is now part of the permanent MARIONI collection available now through authorized dealers.
