Barbara Bondi and Marco Raino of the architecture company brh+ were visiting us in the Lago Appartamento in Milan. Marco is also the president of TURN - a design community in Turin, Italy.
"Design concept is TURN's mission focus. Starting from the definition of three main categories - Product Design (things), Environmental Design (places), Communication Design (messages) as given by Norman Potter in his essay What is a designer (1968) - TURN thinks the word design as a broad and up-to-date term, reflecting how a designer can rethink its society and look for a role in it following its own insight and courage, its mind's openness and creativity.
TURN loves Turin and believes in its future. That's why TURN takes in charge the role of primary interface towards the local administration - letting people understand which is the new Turin's creativity asset inside a strategical planning for the city. Every single associate works with passion keeping in mind Turin's fate and its design. So TURN represents a careful watcher of planning and communication quality inside the city and its governance activities."
Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
