ANDREA CAPUTO

Andrea Caputo is an architect and researcher living in Milan. He combines his professional practise with ongoing research in the architectural and urban planning fields, and has published numerous editorial projects and articles. In 2011, Andrea opened his award-winning architecture studio in Milan and three years later, in 2017, he opened another in Shanghai. His work is recognised for its unexpected solutions, often juxtaposing different materials, which draw attention to the smallest of architectural details. The studio works internationally, developing complex projects on all scales, in collaboration with a qualified network of specialist consultants. His first investigation into urban culture’s aesthetic and social influences was published as All City Writers (Critique Livre, 2009) and soon became a sought-after reference work for street culture. From 2018-19, he edited Domus Magazine’s "Studio Visit " column, which explored contemporary architecture studios’ practices.
Currently, Andrea’s studio is engaged on behalf of the Vastushilpa Foundation of Ahmedabab to conduct a vast survey on the architecture of Balkrishna Doshi, Pritzker Prize 2018.

ANNIINA KOIVU
Anniina Koivu is a design writer, curator, consultant and teacher, who divides her time between Milan and Lausanne. She works across a number of fields, from curation to art direction, product development, and editorial and research projects, which she develops for clients such as Kvadrat, Iittala, Vitra, Camper and the Shorefast Foundation of Fogo Island. Her latest publication’Vico Magistretti: Stories of Objects (ECAL/Triest, 2020), is the result of an investigation of the little-considered moment in the lifespan of design products when production ends, with a focus on the reasons that lead up to this ‘death’ of the design object. She wrote the comprehensive monograph on Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec Works (Phaidon, 2011) and has edited and contributed to a number of publications such Materialising Colour: Journeys with Giulio Ridolfo (Phaidon, 2020), Atlas of Furniture Design (Vitra Design Museum, 2019), Industrial Facility (Phaidon, 2018), Arita 2016/ (Phaidon, 2017), The Walking Society (Lars Müller, 2015) and Pierre Charpin's Entre Les Vases (Birkhäuser, 2009) among others. Serving as editor-in-chief, Anniina launched the first print issue of Interwoven (Kvadrat, 2020), an (online) magazine on contemporary culture and independent criticism. Among her recent curatorial works are Tehdas–Fabrik–Factory (Fiskars Village Art & Design Biennale, 2019), an exhibition exploring the diversity of contemporary design production, and Typologie: the wine bottle and the cork stopper (Milan, 2019). She has been a speaker, moderator and juror at international design competitions and events. She is Head of Master Theory at University of Art and Design Lausanne ECAL.
