In the footprints of creative thinking in product design, together with New York architect Marc Thorpe, who tells us when and how he gets the ideas for his often surprising creations
What’s the best moment for an architect in search of inspiration for his product design projects in a metropolis like New York? Marc Thorpe, known internationally for his dynamically innovative creativity, answers “early in the morning”.
He goes on to describe how for him the most silent and serene hours of the day allow him to take notes, to think and to develop ideas and suggestions with the potential to become high design products.
For Thorpe, creating and designing involves above all perceiving new relationships that integrate, connect and intermix apparently unrelated elements.
In his New York studio, Marc Thorpe Design, experimentation and versatility are the rule: the creation of interior design items and architectural projects intersects with all kinds of different disciplines, in a continuous interplay between digital media, graphic design, furniture design, retail and exhibit design.
