Theme: Design at work: the history of design between the profession and industry
Editors: Fiorella Bulegato and Dario Scodeller
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 8 June 2015
“AIS/Design. Storia e ricerche” is the peer-reviewed online journal of the Italian Association of Design Historians, dedicated to the advancement of research into every aspect of design history and to the publication of higher scientific research.
Issue number 7, coordinated by Fiorella Bulegato and Dario Scodeller, is dedicated to the work of designers in the many different forms in which it has been expressed and developed since the 1930s, in the fields of product, visual and exhibition design. The intent is to examine, taking a point of view from within the profession, the relationship between design autonomy, and the constraints or opportunities represented by the context of organization, production and distribution – intrinsic to manufacturing companies and institutions – within which the designer must operate.
