Where industry and culture merge
Fantoni Research Centre
A dedicated space for research, meeting and sharing
The Research Centre is the place most symbolic of the Fantoni philosophy, in which industry and culture come together to reflect and communicate. Established in 1996 on the Osoppo Campus, the Research Centre is a laboratory of knowledge, where ideas can be elaborated, and internal skills and ideas can be compared and discussed with the world and with society. This is done through intense cultural activity in the form of workshops, conventions and seminars, studies and publications such as the Blueindustry series. In these spaces, international experts, Nobel prize winners, representatives of the worlds of science and business, design and art, academics and students have come together to reflect on topics such as sustainability, design and workspaces, materials, acoustics and innovation.
Opening up to possibility, embracing curiosity, following creativity: this is the spirit that informs the Fantoni Group, and which has given rise to numerous collaborations with international artists and designers, and with major cultural institutions such as the Venice Biennale and the Milan Triennale, which share the same approach. Thus, design becomes sharing and participation. And so a mass-produced product such as the 4akustik sound-absorbent panel can become part of an experimental installation like Revenge by Nico Vascellari.
