About Stefano Ivan Scarascia : Designer, musician and showman, his design work ranges from public transportation – including an award by BOMBARDIER Transportation and participation in Milan’s ATM tram and metro restyling - to especially musical instruments: the only way that since his childhood he found to not confuse the others too much. In the meantime he indeed studies, writes and plays music in live occasions and in studio, as soloist, sessionman and in group formations, on Italian and international stages. He use to play keys, strings, cymbals, percussions, winds, intercoms, ironing boards, ties and water heaters, but he generally prefers to play Music. He came back from Havana with an artisanal guiro, from the Mardi Gras of New Orleans with an old trombone and from the Rio de Janeiro Carnival with four earsplitting drums. Graduated with highest honors in Product Design for Innovation with a thesis for equal rights between black and white keys, he had work experiences in the YAMAHA Design Studio in London and with other musical instrument companies among his current customers. Honored in the 2017 with the Golden A' Design Award, his projects have been exhibited at the Fuorisalone in Milan, Ventura Lambrate Fall Edition, London Design Week and XXI Trienniale, reviewed by Domus, Case e Stili, Ottagono, Corriere Della Sera and Interni.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Design is shaping the artificial environment.

I’ve always been convinced that the strange experience of Life is "just" a precious travel-gift we all have been lucky to receive. The only responsibility we have is doing our best to fully enjoy it and to let other people fully enjoy it too. Nothing else.

We always interact with two kind of environments: a natural one and a wide artificial one.
Among products, songs and civic administration, the artificial environment is fully Designed by us (or people like us) and it can be shaped and re-thinked.
Especially when it’s not exactly human-friendly.

First of all, it's time to subvert irremovable dogmas and outdated habits, in order to flip upright-down, in an illogical way, an illogical world. Undressed of conventions and worries, we finally can directly go to the real essence of Life, focusing our energies to just search beauty, peace, happiness, love, smile and all of the noblest manifestations of Humanity and Joy.

I think the best way to support this aims is to BE a Designer.

I said BE and not just DO it: In fact the classic Product Design activity, with Music and Show are just some of my current favorite tools of the wide Design Approach. When I can, I also like to merge them. In the future I’d like to extend more my specializations also to other “Design fields" - as well as cinema, scripting, screenplay composition.. - in order to shape more of the artificial environment.

Jester but coherent, crazy but precise, lazy but curious, extreme but enthusiastic, in the end I trust in the future.
