Park Associati have always designed objects alongside their architectural activity. The collaboration with Italian and international companies has led to the creation of products, lamps in particular, often specifically meant for the buildings designed by the practice. From Ibla lamp produced by Zumtobel for interior open-spaces to the Mollina chair, the Gazelle table and the Lampsi lamp, resulted from the partnership with Driade.
The Salone del Mobile 2018 opens a new chapter of Park Associati’s design: three creations leading to new collaborations with major producers of ‘made in Italy’ furnishings and lighting. Moreover, for the first time, Park will welcome into their renewed and extended premises at Via Garofalo a couple of young talented designers who will exhibit a project as part of the events taking place in the Fuori Salone.
PARK HOSTING DESIGN
Anna Paola Buonanno and Piergiorgio Italiano are From outer Space, a young design practice very active in the production of original outfitting creations for companies, events and fairs. Unità di Produzione (Production Unit) is the title of the project that will be presented by From outer Space at Park Associati from 17th to 22nd April 2018, in which a series of contemporary, affordable, semi-finished materials are dismantled into their fundamental parts and then reassembled, in experiments producing new pieces of furniture. Special thanks to Annalisa Rosso.

3F HD FOR 3F FILIPPI ARCHITECTURAL
With 3F HD, Park Associati embarked on a collaboration with 3F Filippi | Targetti – among the Italy’s most innovative companies in the field of lighting engineering. Focusing on linearity and balance, the 3F HD’s design features a metal structure with extruded LED modules that combines great versatility and high technical efficiency. Specifically designed for installation in workplaces, the new lamp is also perfectly suited to restaurants, bars, the hospitality industry, and cultural spaces.
3F Filippi | Targetti will showcase their most recent production during the Milan Design Week in a temporary showroom right next to Park Associati’s studio.

SERVOLUCE FOR FIRMAMENTO MILANO
Servoluce is the name of the lamp designed by Park Associati for Firmamento, a new Milanese lighting system company. In its versions for ceiling, table and floor, Servoluce comprises three disks interacting on a vertical shaft. The manual positioning of the central disk generates infinite combinations of reflections and luminous structures that turn the lamp into an ‘indirect light transportation’ device. The lamp will be presented at Firmamento’s stand at the Salone del Mobile 2018.
TAVOLINO FOR STONE ITALIANA
Mono-material, cutting, joining and synthesis are the words that describe the principles followed by Park Associati when they accepted Stone Italiana’s invitation to design an object using only one material – the Grigio Milano Grain produced by the prestigious manufacturing company. 2cm sheets of this material were cut and reassembled by interlocking the finished elements, thus synthesising language and matter, stripping the object down to the bare minimum. Stone Italiana will present Tavolino at their stand at the Salone del Mobile.
