The title, Designing Sustainable Comfort, reflects Diasen’s commitment to develop sustainable products for green buildings that also continue, and refresh, the traditional Mediterranean way of building and living. The company, headquartered in Sassoferrato, in the Marche region, stands out for its innovative approach towards the relationship between comfort and sustainability. Diasen aims at creating living spaces that satisfy increasingly complex needs of protection and well-being.
The workshop, entitled Shapes of a Mediterranean way of decoration: materials, lines and colors, is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m., and will be structured as an applicative session curated by Diasen.
The panel discussion is scheduled from 6:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m. and will then examine topics such as sustainability, well-being, functionality and beauty, as elements of the architectural project.
Moderated by Chiara Tonelli, professor at Roma Tre University, the panel discussion will see the participation of Massimo Alvisi and Junko Kirimoto, founders of Alvisi Kirimoto; João Luís Carrilho da Graça, founder of Carrilho da Graça Arquitectos; Diego Mingarelli, CEO of Diasen; Guendalina Salimei, founder of TStudio; and Francesco Asdrubali, professor at Roma Tre University.
