Italian term or phrase: incursioni nei territori delle arti applicate
Il concetto di "total design" della sua ricerca progettuale - dall'oggetto di uso quotidiano alla riqualificazione di aree urbane con incursioni nei territori delle arti applicate e dell'arte, come i suoi originali acquerelli - sara` invece il tema dell'antologica al Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, dal 20/8 to 12/1/2003. incursioni = incursions in the field of applied art? Thanks!
with excursions into the fields of fine and applied arts
Explanation: We are talking about a designer, one of those who feels capable of taking on anything from "the cucchiaio alla citta'".
So I propose:
"...--from everyday objects to urban redevelopment, with excursions into the fields of fine and applied arts, such as his original watercolours--..."
(There is a bit of misunderstanding above: his excursions into fine and applied arts do not refer to his work on an urban scale, but to his work in general.)

Explanation: Hazon (Garzanti) mi dà questa parola, foray, proprio da usare per il senso figurato (di incursione), con frasi del tipo:
"with an occasional foray into art..." oppure "forays into the field of ... arts", quindi direi:
"with forays into applied arts and the arts in general" o qualcosa del genere.
