Bruno Munari (October 24, 1907 in Milan – September 30, 1998 in Milan) was one of the leading exponents of Italian design of the XX century. Artist, thinker and educator, he revolutionized the fields of visual communication and creative thinking. He also delved deeply into the study of children’s learning processes through play.
Raffaella Perrone, chief operating officer of the design area in IED Barcelona, will review the literature of artist/designer Bruno Munari, focusing on some of the characteristic topics of his work, such as divergent thinking or the definitions and differences between creativity, fantasy and intervention. Useless Machines, created between 1935 and 1945, Falkland lamps and some of his educational books for children, such as “Prelibri”, will be analyzed for a better understanding of the “Munari’s Univers”.
