Rick Owens: “We all struggle with who we are. We have shame, we have pride, we have self delusion.”

Art Since founding his brand in 1994, the fearless and eminently non-conformist designer Rick Owens has been mixing sophisticated aestheticism and punk rage, minimalism and flamboyance, in all the creative fields from fashion to furniture. His cult of chaos is now taking over the Triennale in Milan, which is paying him homage with the very first major retrospective of his career. Numéro asked him about this rite of passage.  Since founding his brand in 1994, the fearless and eminently non-conformist designer Rick Owens has been mixing sophisticated aestheticism and punk rage, minimalism and flamboyance, in all the creative fields from fashion to furniture.

Ron Arad, an unusual designer

Design Ron Arad is without a doubt one of the most important figures in design art, a practice that blurs the boundaries between functionality of design and the pure aesthetics of sculpture that has so seduced the art market. But the designer knows how to create series of objects too, with equal success. An encounter with a designer as atypical as he is exuberant… Ron Arad is without a doubt one of the most important figures in design art, a practice that blurs the boundaries between functionality of design and the pure aesthetics of sculpture that has so seduced the art market.
