Compotec, the first exhibition in Italy about composite materials, opens its doors to interior design solutions with a dedicated exhibition area, CompoDesign.
At the first Compotec, exhibition for composites Technologies, Production and Processing, which will run from 29th to 31st October 2008 in Marina di Carrara, particularly significant design products will be on show in a dedicated area.
CompoDesign was created thanks to the collaboration between Compotec and the designer Massimiliano Della Monaca. It will be characterized by initiatives addressed to sector specialists, but also communicating the fascinating world of composites to the public through installations, seminars and multimedia.
The projects which were designed by Massimiliano Della Monaca’s creativity represent the natural result of the studies of materials and technologies. In particular many products designed by him are made of carbon fibre and take advantage of the particular properties of composites.
The exhibition, open to all visitors during the three day event, will highlight the huge potential that composites offer designers and technicians, not only within the field of aeronautics, automotive but also interior decoration and bathroom furnishings.
