The company increasingly perfects its ability to anticipate changes in living styles in the eighties, when the arrival of the third Fortuna generation in the company coincides with an ever greater desire to work with designers of different inspiration but with the same high levels of professionalism, teamed with a strong inventive vein. Among others, these include Lucci and Orlandini (the firm L/O), Carlo Bartoli, Roberto Pamio and, from 1986, Antonio Citterio. Regardless of age, these are therefore product designers who are attempting to combine innovation, reliability and, naturally, aesthetic and spatial quality. If I may, I have a personal memory of one of my very early years with Domus magazine, preparing a special long feature on kitchens (issue no. 606). I remember, among others, Alisso, an L/O project that focuses on improving ergonomic features, reworking standard measurements for storage and shelves and comes with ingenious accessories.
