French designer Philippe Starck has designed the Dream of Winter Gondola as part of a program to encourage Venetian creatives to use design as a tool for innovation.
Named Dream of Winter Gondola, Starck’s modern gondola – a traditional flat-bottomed rowing boat – was designed to “merge the identity of Italian beauty and heritage”.
It was created for VeniSIA, a corporate accelerator program at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice that aims to inspire students and local Venetians to pursue creative actions and strategies for innovation.
