DDN 279

Materials, which have now become undisputed protagonists in the world of design, have over time evolved, expanding the possibility of choice. The main need is adding character developing high quality solutions. In particular, to meet this need, materials must be long lasting, sustainable and customizable. The different materials used in the construction sector as well as in the production of products can, in all respects, determine the success of a project. In this issue we have chosen to in-depth investigate the fields of ceramics and marble: two materials that, although different from each other, both require innovative production processes. In this issue are also featured the bloggers of our DDN Safari Fest, in a fully- Italian edition, to establish a bond between the online and offline worlds, increasingly important and strong in our publishing universe.
