Design in Italy in critical times

Alfonso Cantafora

A “DIY” rack, high end customized, totally decomposable to be setting in the travelling, and to carry the essential stuff, solid but essential. From the smallest element improved in every detail to a bicycle prosthesis, always in progress, obsessively trying to follow the idea of perfection between technique and pure, cultured invention. A design born of a fascination for mechanics and their aesthetics, putting machines and experts to the test, a work elaborated with refined traditional techniques, that are slowly disappearing.

icon-archi Alfonso Cantafora was born in Milan in 1973. After graduating in architecture at the Politecnico di Milano he travels by bike for 11 years in the most part of Europe. He won the design competition Artò 2011 at Lingotto in Turin with a bike that covers three themes: structure, mechanics, sound survey of the landscape.
