Historically, design has expressed itself having a concrete and stable physical
consistency of objects as objective. This planning attitude corresponds to an aspiration to stability and immutability. An aspiration that belongs to a world developed within models of mechanic culture, and that appears out-of-date because of the revolution represented by electronics and virtuality, which has
generated a symbolic propension towards immateriality. This process starts from the search for an autonomous identity of surface of industrial objects, and comes to new values, which have to be assigned to the transparency of the object.
