Giacomo Sicuro (studio GaS based in Milan), tells about O.I.L’s and new horizons through design.
The force behind the creation of O.I.L. has been the wish to enlarge the high-quality design research of GaS Studio to new horizons. Architecture, industrial design, technological innovation and graphics are all creative disciplines that too often are seen only in their separate boxes. O.I.L. tries to converge these fields again and benefit from a multilateral approach to design.
Looking for new targets:We are presently seeking partnerships with producers that have a strong approach to creativity. Companies that try to innovate the philosophy of the living itse. lf by improving the sustainability of the materials and the smoothness of the production process of their products. A good illustration of this concept is the WikiWall, a new system of mobile partitions for offices, versatile and highly customizable; simplifies the production and assembly processes, offering clear benefits and high sustainability. “On the wave of the good design experiences we have been through during the last years, I like to think that separate realities – the home, the office, spaces a and activities dedicated to family, work or leisure – will mix in order to allow a better, more creative management of the various resources and of our own time. The working environment must offer flexibility, comfort, services and a kind of ‘home’ feeling, while working from home will be more and more possible, offering a better management of the family time.”
