The serene and discreet elegance, which is the keyword of many of our productions ranging from upholstered furniture to bookcases, from lights to chairs, living systems, bathroom and kitchen … We have translated it into purity, the balance of lines and shapes, lightness and airiness. Probably our more feminine side translates into a sweet, soft, but also contemporary, pragmatic sign.”

Therefore they prefer flexible products that can blend and cohabit in harmony with other pieces of different eras. To achieve this goal they discuss and work with four hands, amplifying the creative leverage that derives from their different cultural backgrounds.

“Working with leading companies in the sector, we are encouraged to find highly performing ergonomic lighting solutions. Without, however, renouncing to give attention to details. For example, brass, glass, etc. appears like an embroidery or an insert to create a precious, noble sign, almost a reference to history and the patina of time.”
