"As contemporary design struggles with its conscience to remain both valid and critical in the face of ever-diminishing resources and a super-saturated market, I admired seeing the fruits of Barbara Brondi and Marco Raino’s Turin-based IN Residence workshop, which sought to raise such issues through projects by Peter Marigold, Formafantasma, Julia Lohmann, and other rising stars. IN Residence invites designers to a hotel in Turin, putting them on the spot by giving them a topic and making them respond to it through their work." The Ten Small Atlases show in Lambrate gave each designer who participated in the workshop a platform to display a recent project, alongside the story of its creation. Photo by Davide Farabegoli
