From outer Space



From outer Space is the design initiative under which Anna Paola Buonanno and Piergiorgio Italiano sign their collaborative practice. FOS produces spaces, set designs and installations through an understanding of contemporary social, economic and aesthetic issues and the valorization of the context; other activities include art direction, online publications and book design. FOS investigates the role of design in the “Era of crisis” through research, assignments and partecipatory practices, such as workshops and collective self-initiated projects. The studio process is intended to bring design to its essential meaning, as an antidote to today’s material and formal excesses.
Anna Paola and Piergiorgio currently teach at IED Torino.
