backprotector, 1994 for dainese


you have also designed accessories for sports, like skiing or body protection elements, like crash helmets. is the technical input more important, or the esthetic aspect?

esthetics is the last thing I worry about, I design these “prostheses” as if I were in the world of medicine, but since that isn’t the market, there are color trends…if I make blue helmets and that year black motorcycles are popular, they won’t even sell a single one.


is there any designer from past you appreciate a lot?

raymond loewy, because he was amusing…i can’t think of anyone else.


what about your younger colleagues, are there any particular ones you appreciate?

I like alberto meda’s work, he is my neighbour.
