Boffi Invitation by Distinc Design


Boffi Los Angeles and Ducati Team Up for an
Unprecedented Showroom Event, March 18, 2008


For one evening only, Boffi Los Angeles and Ducati team up to host an unprecedented event exploring the history of two of Italy’s foremost design legends. Boffi’s modern, minimalist showroom comes alive with a stirring juxtaposition of Ducati motorcycles, visionary kitchen and bathroom designs, and a photo essay chronicling the remarkable parallel histories of Boffi and Ducati. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Event highlights include:

  • 70 Years of Boffi Design: Follow this visual footpath tracing Boffi’s design evolution – from humble beginnings as an artisan workshop in Cesano Maderno, to the company’s rise to the vanguard of the international kitchen and bathroom design market.
  • 80 Years of Ducati Design: The Ducati legacy becomes reality.  Spanning over half a century, vintage Ducati motorcycles will adorn the Boffi Los Angeles showroom, bringing history into dramatic relief.
  • Preview of the 2009 Ducati Streetfighter: Unveiled November 3rd at the EICMA 2008 Milan Bikeshow, the Streetfighter has already created a stir. Stripped to the bare essentials, the Streetfighter combines Ducati’s state-of-the-art race technology with the naked sophistication of Italian design.
  • Panel Discussion Presented by LA Forum: Double Vision: Identity vs. Perception – exploring convergent and divergent points in architectural and commercial design practice. Panelists: Jeffrey Schnapp, Elena Manferdini, Frank Clementi. Moderator: John Enright.
