“Made in Italy”: these three words are enough to immediately refer to aesthetic taste, passion, attention to details, quality care and tradition. Craftsmanship and the typical Italian charm, with its timeless elegance, are characteristics that make Italy famous all over the world.
This statement is certainly true for all production sectors, but it takes on a special meaning in areas such as furniture and design.
In 2013, KPMG registered “Made in Italy” as the third brand in the world for notoriety, after Coca Cola and Visa. It is to all intents and purposes the only brand of origin that has managed to emerge successfully on the global market.
If we analyse the history of Made in Italy design from the post-war period to the present day with its most prominent exponents (from Magistretti to Ponti, from Giugiaro to the contemporary Castelli), we can see a strong focus on an essential design full of multifaceted references outside the specific sector, such as the famous Eclisse table lamp by Artemide (1965) which immediately became the symbol of Italian design in the 20th century.
It is no coincidence that the “Furniture” sector is one of the three “F’s” of Made in Italy, together with “Food” and “Fashion”, which are fundamental not only from a cultural point of view, but also in terms of their impact on Italy’s GDP.
Italian design has always been able to use unconventional materials to obtain a result with a strong visual impact and always with a reference to tradition.
Applying design to the medical field has been a clear evolving trend over the last twenty years, with the aim of improving the treatment experience for both doctors and patients.
The production of handcrafted furniture and equipment in the dental and medical field can be rightfully considered one of the sectors in which Italian design expresses itself at its best.
Nowadays, we are witnessing a change in trends in the medical field, with an increasing tendency towards aesthetics. This makes it all the more strategic that the practice’s equipment reflects the concept of beauty combined with functionality.
Following the principles of Italian design to meet the needs of medical or dental practices means, first and foremost, choosing quality and innovative materials: Italian excellence cannot be ignored in this regard.
Starting from it, industrial designers, drawing inspiration from trends and suggestions coming from areas that are also totally different from the medical field (see furniture, architecture, boating, fashion, etc.), have to study products capable of combining maximum functionality with an appealing design, carefully following every step of the process, from design to production, while maintaining a strict quality control.
The result of this process is the creation of sophisticated products in which the “visual pleasure” always goes hand in hand with functionality and ergonomics of use. In other words, the ability to convey beauty and harmony at first glance – requirements that immediately lead to a Made in Italy product – cannot disregard the intrinsic performance related to the specific use.
Choosing the Made in Italy design, applied in the dental and medical field, means potentially having wide possibilities of customization, able to meet the most varied functional and aesthetic needs.
Intuition, craftsmanship and passion are among the fundamental principles of Tecnodent’s DNA. Founded in Bologna in 1966, Tecnodent was established at the apex of a historical period – the ’50s and ’60s – known for the economic boom and the consequent notoriety of Made in Italy.
In a small garage in Bologna, they laid the foundations of an activity that has grown, constantly investing in research and innovation, but preserving the renowned “savoir faire” linked to the artisan tradition from which it comes. The love for beauty and design is continuously at the service of products conceived focusing on the principles of ergonomics for operators and patients.
