The role of Art (in interior design).

The artwork as value added and an investment to be included in the planning service. The goal is to connect art, design and architecture, that’s why well-organized projects are necessary to be competitive, particularly abroad, where Italian productions are often synonymous with artistic visions of life and work.

The use of art for decoration purposes is often an issue, that strikes today’s artists and managers of art galleries with horror. Quite different  from the Renaissance period, when art studios invented the consistent image, from fashion to architecture,  for the major brands of that time, namely the aristocratic families.
Nowadays the subdivision and relevant specialization of skills has caused a fragmentation of the creative offer.
Instead, the goal is to connect art, design and architecture, that’s why well-organized projects are necessary to be competitive, particularly abroad, where Italian productions are often synonymous with artistic visions of life and work.
So, it’s a matter of fostering relations between similar sectors (offices, hotels, restaurants, luxury houses, yachts), that often refer to the same market, and common business opportunities.
The first step is to make the architecture firm aware, so that they can propose the  work of art as value added and an investment to be included in the planning service.
The individualism  of professions gave rise to the individualism of professionals; when is art sharing going to be real?
