GIANNI ARDUINI − Industrial Designer

I was born in 1948 and soon after studying Industrial Design − I graduated from the European Institute of Design in 1974 − and a short but fun experience as a jewelry designer, I started my professional experience at studio Zanuso. I have then acted as a consultant for the Italian Design Group and I have been a partner in the Arduini Bonfanti and Salvemini studio. I am particularly interested in the issues of design applied to disability and Design for All (Inclusive Design) and have been a founding member of EIDD − European Institute for Design and Disability (now Design for All Europe) − Dublin and founder and first chairman of IIDD − Italian Institute for Design and Disability (now DfA Italy).
