Design in Italy in critical times

Francesco Faccin

Iconic object of the passageway of time: a barrow. Easy to manufacture and use, most of all useful, and, as here designed, also beautiful and entertaining. An adult toy that evokes the idea of a job and a life of simplicity, to go forth against the crisis.

icon-archi Francesco Faccin was born in Milan in 1977. He attended the European Institute of Design and worked in the studio of Enzo Mari. He began working as a freelance designer for Italian and foreign companies. Since 2004 he designs objects that can be produced in small series, trying to discover the secrets of the old craftsmen.
