NEWS & UPDATES

Expansion #3

April 29, 2022 at 10:29

We are pleased to inform you that today, on April 29, 2021 at 10:28, we have signed a new notary agreement to fully purchase yet another property to expand the design museum. This specific property purchase was rather important for us as it was positioned very strategically between all other properties, and with the purchase of this particular property the museum now controls the complete left façade of the building and all previously purchased properties could now be connected to each other physically.

We are very happy to acquire this lot, which was the last piece that we needed to make a truly amazing storefront for the museum. In the birdseye view above, you will notice the location of the museum, we got the whole basefloor that was one large warehouse, and three shops. This location is blessed with its vicinity to Villa Olmo, the Como Lake and to top that, there are two very big parking lots, within 50 meters a great convinience for visitors, a true rarity in Como.


Expansion #2

April 28, 2022 at 15:29

We are very pleased to inform you that today, on April 28, 2022 at 15:29, we have signed a new notary agreement to fully purchase a new and additional property to expand the design museum. This particular purchase was very important as it was the biggest adjecent property that was essential for the growth of the museum, with large windows visible from the street overseeing Villa Olmo. This new expansion will allow us to exhibit all designs in a more adequate and respectful manner, giving them more space and light for proper and prestigious showcase.


Trademark Registered

December 9, 2021 at 08:00

We are pleased to announce that on 9 December, 2021. We have successfully registered the Museo del Design Trademark with the European Union Intellectual Property Office and our entries have been recorded in the Register of European Union trademarks.

Our new trademark registration allows us to create new and original, commercial as well as probono products, projects and services with the Museo del Design™® registered trademark without worries of interest conflicts. Furthermore, we can also use registered trademark symbol, as well as the trademark icon with our name.


Expansion #1

October 6, 2021 at 11:30

We are pleased to inform you that today, on October 5, 2021 at 11:30, we have signed a new notary agreement to fully purchase a new and additional property to expand the design museum. This new property purchase is important for us as it expands the front façade of the museum and therefore allows us to significantly improve street level exposure and visibility. The additional windows and storefronts will definitely attract visitors to the museum, helping us showcase award-winning works to larger audiences.

Via Bellinzona, where the museum is located, has a very high traffic of affluent locals and tourists, and the larger front provided by this expansion will not only help lure design-oriented audiences to the museum but most importantly, this new property purchase also enables us to reposition the ticket office to open up space to exhibit award-winning good designs in a better, larger setting.


Call for Reflections

August 14, 2021 at 08:30

We are pleased to inform you that from August 14, 2021 to August 21, 2021 we are having an open call for ideas where world-renown artists, architects and designers can submit their creative concepts, design ideas and projects drafts to get involved with the foundation of the design museum. We especially keep the submission timeframe an extremely short duration of 7 days to go forward faster and start producing outcomes as fast as possible.


Unity and Diversity for Logo Mark

October 6, 2020 at 10:15

We are very pleased to inform you that today, on October 6, 2020 at 19:30 Italian time, we have selected the final logo for the Museo del Design, titled "Coherent Consonance", designed by OMC Design Studios in Como, Italy. The logo mark was selected after a democratic voting process where over 400 designs were eliminated, followed by a top-down decision from the list of 8 final options, which the winning emblem was selected.

Before selecting the final logo, OMC Design Studios further presented us with monochromatic versions, scaled-down versions as well as black & white variants to see how well the new logo would perform in different applications and mediums.

For Black & White variant, a distinct symbol version was created, that integrates full and empty circles, which deviates from the full color logo. This variant became a popular option for the Museo del Design to integrate for graphics work. We later built upon and refined this monochrome version for more common use.

In addition to full color logo image, a reverse color scheme that integrate pastel colors were also presented. We are very pleased that the logo symbol works in almost any color at any scale.

The logo design integrates 26 distinct colors, 10 squares, 10 triangles, 5 circles, each in a distinct and unique color, the motto of the logo is, “Unity with Diversity”. The logo has two distinct graphic element groups.

The first graphic element group, the “Elemental Factory”, symbolizes unity, order, harmony and industrial production; it further represents the ability of mankind to highly specialize in distinct knowledge domains, come together and efficiently create and produce art, architecture, design and artifacts for the good and benefit of the society, using tools and technologies, that are constantly being built upon.

The second graphic element group, “Fist of Chaos”, is a juxtaposition to the “Elementary Factory”, signify diversity, chaos, individuality, oneness and distinctiveness. The whole represents “Coherent Consonance”, agreement and compatibility between different opinions and actions that leads to logical and consistent quality of forming a unified whole, where divergent and individual ideas are given as importance as widely common public and social concepts.

Museo del Design’s new logo embeds unrestrained child-like imagination and creativity with professional logo mark design with scale-testing, kerning, typeface and symbol design; the new logo is distinctive, remarkable and unique, all and all being highly professional and functional.

In graphics design, it is almost a taboo, if not highly challenging task, to use more than a few colors for a highly professional logo mark. It is hard to create a working logo with many colors, and that’s what was achieved here. We wanted to break the norm to have a black and white logo that is written simply in Helvetica, Neue Haas Grotesk or Swiss 721 and created a new look.

For the new logo, multiple distinct typefaces that represent the very rich Italian and Roman culture were integrated, modified and altered; inspiration for the logotype came from the fonts that were used in the historical archives, notary and communal documents that detailed the real estate of the museum itself, as well as the overall Italian culture, which gave birth to Leonardo da Vinci; Roman artifacts, Leonardo’s own writings, and ancient and classical Roman fonts were blend together, redrawn, vectorized, placed, kerned and rounded ever slightly to create the final work.

While other museums focused on monochromatic logo designs that are almost always just black, we especially went for a very colorful logo that further integrates distinct graphic elements, which could be used to create distinct and derivative elements that could be integrated and used as part of a larger brand identity.

We tested real life applications of the logo design by producing samples of the final logo both as positive and negative variants with different manufacturing technologies, and in the end, we made several improvements and changes that allows us to create the logo easier in 3D printing, CNC working and laser cutting.

In the final version of the monochromatic version of the logo, we have simplified the vector source by reducing the number of points, we mended the factory squares and triangles, rounded the factory edges ever so slightly and we also merged the circles together which makes it easier to be 3D printed, CNC worked and laser cutted.

We are very pleased with the final look of the Museo del Design's Unity and Diversity Logo Mark, and we now have a merchandise package that you could order that integrates this new and exciting logo design, both in colorful and monochromatic variants.


We have signed the Notary Act for Purchase Deed

September 29, 2020 at 10:15

We are very pleased to inform you that today, on September 29, 2020 at 10:15 Italian time, we have signed the notarized agreement and deed for purchasing a very prestigious, very large real estate right near Villa Olmo in Como, Italy.

Above, you see Prof. Dr. Onur Mustak Cobanli signing for the Deed of Purchase, on behalf of A' Design Award & Competition, the entity, who have purchased the real estate for establishing the Museo del Design in Como, Italy. The Museo del Design is going to be located at Via Bellinzona 15, Como, Italy.

The street name Bellinzona could perhaps be a fast spelling of "belli in zona", which translates to "beauties in the area", which we find it a hapy coincidence since the museo del design will definetely be the one of most beautiful locations in the area, and in the World for arts, creativity, design and architecture.

Villa Olmo, built from 1797 in neoclassicist style by the Odescalchi family, housed Napoleon, Ugo Foscolo, Prince Metternich, Archduke Franz Ferdinand I, Giuseppe Garibaldi, and other eminent figures, now an exhibition center with a great lake view and excellent gardens, is the most touristic location of the Como city.

Como city, relocated by Julius Caesar, near Milan, yet also bordering Switzerland, the gem of Como Lake, is one of the most touristic Italian cities, birth place of Alessandro Volta, one of the most visited cities of Lombardy.

Villa Olmo is the centerpiece of tourism for Como, and our new design museum space is located just 40 seconds by walk to it. We have been searching for a space like this for the last 10 years. The Museo del Design has a very good location, right next to lake, literally next to Villa Olmo, which also provides us with ample parking opportunities.

This brand-new grand exhibition space, will serve as the foundation of our pride, the newly established Museo del Design, which will be exhibiting good designs, art and architecture from all countries in all disciplines, that will serve as a catalyst, a power source for us to establish our foundation goal of making the World a better place with good design.


Museo del Design Incorporated

May 25, 2021 at 15:09

We are very pleased to inform you that today, on May 25, 2021 at 15:09 Italian time, we have signed the notarized agreement to establish Museo del Design to celebrate and promote creativity and design at the highest level as a distinct legal entity in Como, Italy.

Museo del Design is all about being an excellent museum of super contemporary design with an extended network and ecosystem that is designed to bring rare and unique benefits to all entities, enterprises and institutions that create and cultivate good design.

Museo del Design is incorporated to exhibit latest and newest design work, creative arts, original architecture, innovative engineering and ground-breaking ideas. Museo del Design’s core mission is to promote good design universally, to become a centre of creative thinking, design philosophy and inspiration, and to educate and inspire.

Museo del Design is founded to organize educational events, courses and workshops, create and manage designer, architect and artists residence programs, rent or lease spaces for exhibitions, showcase and sell design products, recognize and promote great works of design, art and architecture as well as host, cater, accommodate and provide transportation for designers, own and operate designer hotels, bars and restaurants, to create and construct new buildings and form designful new enterprises.

Most importantly, Museo del Design is founded to able to franchise or create new museums, new branches in Italy and in other countries, to bring super contemporary good design next door; to reach your friends and your city with inspiration and creativity, wherever you are.


Museo del Design Founded

August 22, 2020 at 08:30

We are very pleased to share with you the Foundation Statements of Museo del Design. Museo del Design’s vision is a bright future supported and sustained by well designed superior products, projects, artwork and architecture. Museo del Design’s mission is to help outstanding designers, artists, architects, innovators and engineers to find new audiences, new markets and new clients, so that they are incentivized and empowered to create more works that benefit and advance society. Benefit maximizing but not profit maximizing, Museo del Design was designed as a corporation with a goal to achieve maximum public benefit rather than profits, where the vision, mission and actions converge towards creating and maximizing social utility.

Museo del Design’s action, to realize its mission and vision, is to exhibit, showcase, spotlight, promote, advertise and recognize excellent new and well-designed products, projects and works in a reputable environment and respectable ambient. Museo del Design’s mandate is to promote super contemporary good design, architecture, arts, engineering and innovation, as well as the creators of thereof, in all industrial fields, in all academic disciplines, worldwide. Museo del Design’s primary goal is to increase demand for good design and incentivize great designers by recognizing, highlighting, spotlighting, displaying, exhibiting and advertising super contemporary works of great designers, artists, architects, innovators and engineers worldwide.

Museo del Design’s secondary objective is to help outstanding designers, artists, architects, innovators and engineers to find commercial opportunities, to get them commissioned and hired by institutions and companies that are seeking leading creatives to work with. Museo del Design may be all about exhibiting great works but in the end, Museo del Design is all about people and creating a bright future for our generations to come; Museo del Design’s final aim is to become an international hub for super contemporary good design, with outposts in all countries, in all cities, showcasing amazing good design work and promoting outstanding designers, artists and architects in all industries, educating the general public and inspiring design oriented audiences from across the globe.

Museo del Design wishes to challenge the established norms and expectations on what modern design and contemporary art museums are. Almost all designs museums worldwide have been established as local architectural icons, education experiences, inspiration centres, cultural heritage preservation centres and social hubs that inspire and educate the public; that’s great but not enough; first of all, we wish to move from a local to global perspective; by making the exhibitions more international and more inclusive by having works from artists, architects, engineers, designers and innovators from across the globe included, showcased and displayed in our permanent collection, and then also by communicating and representing the showcased works in over hundred different languages, but also by opening new, other Museo del Design branches, outposts and locations in other countries and continents, making the Museo del Design truly global from all perspectives.

Secondly, we want to focus on now; almost all design museums are about collecting, preserving and storing artifacts; they are design history museums, repositories of historically important designs; however good design is trendy, fashionable and timely, we believe in exhibiting super contemporary designs; designs created within the last few years with a high focus on designs created this year; Museo del Design is now. Museo del Design aims to honour current and living designers today. Finally, up to this point, almost all design museums have been government initiatives, subsidized, handled and controlled by the government, dependent, under influence of politics and under control of interest groups; we want to create an independent, meritocratic, apolitical museum, that can sustain itself, that can decide for itself; therefore, we wish to add a commercial dimension that both sustains the museum but also covers recreation, enjoyment and pleasure; with an interesting and original experience design.

In collaboration with the World Design Consortium, the Museo del Design will also function as a commercial centre where you could find amazing designers, artists, architects, architectural offices and design studios, to commission, hire or consult for your next project. When it comes to pleasure and enjoyment, Museo del Design will be all about making its visitors happy; we believe this is easy with coffee and sugar, if not by the finest sparkling wines accompanied with exclusive gifts as well as an ambient that features selfie and auto-photography spots where one can immortalize the experience. Museo del Design’s practices, principles, common decency and good business sense demand and dictate an excellent universal design that is accessible as much as enjoyable.

Space-Time Displacement

Let Your Memories Time-Travel Forward

Space-Time Displacement: We will be storing your time-capsule for the next 88 years and showcase your brand logo, design, or graphic work applied to the exterior of the time-capsule to museum visitors. Your time capsule will be numbered and inspected by the lore keeper. Unlike other installations, where the objects are completely visible, exposed and also digitally scanned, the contents of the Time-Space Displacement capsules will remain a mystery, except for the name of the person who deposited them, and an enigmatic statement by the lore keeper about the contents of the capsule, that does not reveal much detail except for item sizes, colors, texture, weight and scent, which all makes the capsule more cryptic instead. On the exterior however, you are not only allowed to, but especially encouraged and suggested to apply amazing graphic design work to make the overall installation attractive to museum visitors. Museum visitors will be able dig into the mysterious capsules by entering their identifiers to the digital display that would be placed next to the capsules. Time capsules are made of metal on the outside and have an internal glass container inside to provide additional isolation and a second layer of protection for its contents. Before closing the capsules, in order to provide additional safety and extend protection lifespan we will replace air inside the glass container with Argon gas to reduce oxidation and protect its content, furthermore we will add oxygen scavengers to the metal container to decrease the level of oxygen in the package. In addition to oxygen scavengers, we will also place silica desiccant to reduce internal humidity, and we will also place volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) to protect internal metals from rusting. Time-Space Displacement capsules will not be buried and will be exhibited in the museum space prominently, if you do not apply a graphic work to its exterior, in this case we will paint each capsule based on the average color of its contents. You are also allowed to place your logo, signature, design or name on the time capsule exterior graphic design. Capsule owners will have the right to request premature opening of capsules at any date and be able to retrieve their contents however the capsules themselves will remain part of the exhibition. If and when a capsule is opened earlier, its contents should be replaced with equivalent weight and value objects at the date of opening, for the grand opening event that would take place 88 years later. We will also take photos of exteriors of your capsules and showcase it in our online photo gallery.

Benefits: Your time capsule will be stored in our museum environment for 88 years, its contents will be hidden but its exterior will be exhibited and showcased to museum visitors, exposing your decoration, graphic design work, signature and/or logo at its exterior to visitors from across the globe, all meanwhile protecting your memories, collectibles, keepsakes, archives and relics, and also providing you with an interesting story and memory to leave to your successors and heirs, who shall be invited to the grand reopening ceremony that would take 88 years later. + Heartfelt thank you on the museum website, shoutout at our social media, plus your name listed in the museum’s annual newsletter as a big thank you for your much-appreciated support.

We will start providing the rewards from September 2022, starting with the merchandise kit, other rewards, such as those that require you to send us materials and data, will start immediately but they will be realized and placed only once the architectural and interior renovation is completed, which we hope to do so latest by September 2024.

It is highly possible to get your work exhibited at Museo del Design especially if you have some great designs, conceptualized or realized within the last ten (10) years. In general, we feature award-winning designs, art and architecture, especially good designs that have won prestigious awards such as the A’ Design Award & Competition.
Right now, as you may have noticed, we are running an ongoing fundraiser and crowdfunding campaign for the design museum with our primary exhibits, extended initial offerings, unique installations, merchandise and attractions. Our purpose is to stay independent and strong, to have funds and resources to achieve our primary goals of promoting the designers and their original design works. Therefore, it is not possible to take part in the installations free of charge, but we are always open to barter; we can exchange our services, our products for your services, your products and your time; we are open for equal exchange for sure.
The most direct, but not an easy way, for you to get your design exhibited at Museo del Design is to take part and hopefully win the A’ Design Award and Competition. Right now, you may upload your design free of charge to A’ Design Award to get a free preliminary score, to understand if you have a chance. Every year, Museo del Design refreshes majority of its collection with new and original award-winning works that we select among A’ Design Award winners. We work with A’ Design Award since A’ Design Award & Competition has the most diverse participant base and design portfolio, and also of course because A’ Design Award & Competition has contributed very significantly to the establishment of the Museo del Design by being a founding member. The second way to get exhibited is to get a direct invitation from the Museo del Design curators, which may happen during workshops, courses and other events organized by the museum.

The very first museum to open to the public was Museo Capitolini. Museo Capitolini was established in Rome, Italy in 1471 and was open to public in 1734, but even before then, in Italy, there were many private museums in their prototype form; grand houses and palaces of aristocrats and the social elite were built with special rooms that were created as spaces designed specifically to display works of art; these room-museums contained paintings, sculptures and curiosity cabinets and eventually the value of showcasing art and design for public benefit was recognized and the era of museums happen to be. It is only natural that we choose Italy, the cradle of museums, as the location where we would open our first branch.
