By the age of 10, Dario Antonioni was a bona-fide flight junkie, churning out model airplanes like a man obsessed. While other kids were memorizing baseball statistics, Antonioni was devouring every book about the Wright Brothers he could get his hands on. Even then, Antonioni was amazed not so much by the flight itself - but by the fact that two nobody bicycle mechanics had the effrontery to revolutionize a field so far beyond their area of expertise that they had almost no business being there. "They were the kind of innovators who didn't follow a standard path," says Antonioni. Today, the founder of the Los Angeles design lab Orange22 still takes his cue from those aviators, refusing to abide by the often fiercely guarded distinctions between disciplines in design. He calls himself a "maker of things" - a purposefully open-ended description, as Orange22 designs and fabricates both mass-market and limited-edition objects and furniture, brand-defining retail environments, residential interiors and design concepts licensed for mass production. In every case, Antonioni fuses technology, art and design, with the overarching intent to revolutionize the way we live.
