Aldo Cibic


Aldo Cibic’s career began in 1978, when he joined the studio of Ettore Sottsass while still very young. He was a founding member of the Memphis Group, an important movement that questioned Modernist and wanted to re-establish design, and remained a member until the collective broke up in 1987. His experience working alongside Sottsass and architects from all over the world involved with the Memphis movement inspired Cibic to continue the process of experimentation, letting himself be guided by the formal intuition and inspiration of the emotions, an increasingly important aspect of design from the eighties on. The result is a mixture of styles and vocabularies that cannot be identified with a signature. In parallel with his career as a designer for prominent Italian and international companies after the end of the Memphis decade, he founded Cibic & Partners, a studio which also worked on architectural and interior design projects. His analysis of architecture led Cibic to consider the issue of sustainability in a broad sense, studying planning of land use and living environments and contributing to the definition of the discipline of “service design”. Cibicworkshop focuses on individuals and their complex system of relationships and constant propensity for change.
Aldo Cibic is an honorary professor at Tongji University in Shanghai and has taught in a number of universities, including Domus Academy and Politecnico di Milano in Milan, IUAV in Venice, and UNSAM Universidad Nacional de San Martìn in Buenos Aires. He has lectured at the Royal College of Art in London, Vassar College in New York state, RISD Rhode Island School of Design, MIT in Boston and Parsons The New School for Design in in New York.
