Rolf Gunther, a German-born designer living in Geneva, has been elected as the new president of IDEAS, the international association of independent sports designers that we co-founded inside the ISPO show ten years ago. He replaces Mirella Becucci, an Italian designer who has been working for Arena and other sports bodywear firms. IDEAS’ member studios are now 24 and are based in nine different countries. Gunther’s studio, Idea Sportswear Design, works for brands like Anzi Besson, Neil Pryde, Odlo, Orco and Tao.
