DESIGN BALNEARE (Seaside design) concerns “the set of structures, often ephemeral, that are composed of signboards, lettering, beach equipment, ranging from the life-vest to the cabine, from the trampoline to the dustbin, from the paddle boat to the showers, from the boat to the speedboat, from the bucket to the jukebox, from the playground to the mini-golf." [Gillo Dorfles]
Design Balneare develops in the meeting point between natural landscape and man-made interventions, between local context and tourism, between permanent habitat and temporary housing, between culture and consumption, between real human needs and invented needs.
From the beginning of the 80s to the early 90s the municipality of Cattolica is active in researching how to renew its apparatus of signs and materials, for the definition of a new seaside culture. In 1983 it launches the ‘Design Balneare II’ competition. The process is coordinated by Ugo La Pietra, who is joined in the jury by Bruno Munari and Gillo Dorfles.
In the context of MADE LABS in Siracusa we invite the applicants to think about the seaside environment, starting from the categories that Ugo La Pietra, in his summary text, indicates as the research topics on which to base a future observatory of the seaside culture.
A) The seaside industry
B) The seaside environment
C) The seaside food
D) Spontaneous seaside architecture
E) Seaside architecture
F) The bathing behavior
G) Seaside fashion
H) Bathing music
I) The seaside sport (activities, objects, tools, ... rituals)
L) Seaside design
