Marco Susani
Marco Susani extended the culture of Italian Design to innovation fields like hi-tech Product Design, Interaction Design and Strategic Design, and combines the experience of design consultant, developed as associate partner of Ettore Sottsass, with his International Corporate Design expertise developed as Vice President of Digital Design at Motorola USA from 2000 to 2009.

He designed for companies like Motorola, Philips, Seiko, Olivetti, 3M, NTT Japan, Zumtobel, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Tokyo Gas, Toshiba, Apple, Logitech, Mediaset, bTicino, Fontana Arte.

His main interest is to combine high technology with emotional design, and to use his design vision to drive toward a more human future.

His original combination of consultant and corporate experiences gives him a valuable insight on how to best do design in both contexts.

His works have been shown in exhibitions at Triennale di Milano, Memphis Gallery Milano, Centre Pompidou Paris, Axis Gallery Tokyo, Grand Palais Paris, and Design Museum London.

He won the Top Award for Interface Design at IF Hanover 1997, the Honorable Mention in ID Magazine’s Interface Design Award in 1997, the Nomination at the 1998 Europrix European Prize and at the 1997 Moebius European Prize, the Grand Prize at the 1998 Mitsubishi International Design Competition, and the ID Magazine Concept Design Award in 2001.

He co-authored the books “Interface Design” (Domus Academy Edizioni), “Seamless Media (NTT Japan), “The Solid Side” (Philips Design), “Service Design” (Koeln University), “Presence, New Media for Older People” (Netherlands Design Institute), and wrote articles for the magazines Domus, Interni, ICC Japan, Axis Japan, and FP Japan. He is now preparing a book on social aspects of mobile wireless communication.

He gave keynote speeches, lectures and seminars at various conferences. Among them: “Doors of Perception” (Amsterdam), “Ars Electronica” (Linz), “Mobile HCI” (Salzburg), “Scope” (Wien), Les Atelier (Paris), Institute of Contemporary Arts (London), RMIT Melbourne (Australia), Hochschule der Kunst (Berlin), RCA (London), “Designing Futures” (Australia), MIT MediaLab (Cambridge), and AIGA (Boston).
