italian industrial and furniture design studio
Talented design studio in Rome. Our design is inspired by simplicity addressed with the right poetics, using metaphors that express both functions and qualities of each product. The goal is always to offer a content with a strong communicative character. To do this, the starting point is the concept, which then develops into the study and design of the most innovative features in all the details.
Our process is made of 5 principal stages:
Analisys | Discover | Define | Refine | Deliver
We work through the whole creative stages starting from the concept, using the preparatory drawings and the prototypes, finding stimulating and useful for the project to work inside factories and laboratories

Floor lamp inspired by the burning glasses used by Archimedes in the Syracuse siege.
The lamp, through the double finishing touches of the mirror, creates two fundamental effects either a direct or a scattered light.
Wooden table bottle holder. Its oblique pose is frezeed in the gesture of pouring more wine drinking in good company.
Through the support of the suitably shaped base, the bottle holder remains stable in the inclined position. The inner tube helps keep the wine temperature.
The merging of wood and metal is the concept upon which this table is based.
The combination of these two materials, a warm one and a cold one, and the various finishes that can be obtained, provide a remarkable flexibility for positioning Trivolta in several types of places.
Just like the original rectangular version, the metal plates are fixed through the wooden core in order to compose the top. As a result, three vaults are created to keep the entire table structure solid and stable.
This table is characterized by a soft sense of industrial elegance. The standard natural steel finish does exalt the contrast between wood and metal. The top is composed of a steel plate and a wooden central core. By fixing the two metalled elements to the central wooden part, the entire structure is kept stable and in place, just like it happened with ancient vaults in architecture.
Volta was published in the ADI Design Index 2015 and competed for Compasso D’Oro 2016.
Moonsieur is a steel floor lamp which turns light into a highly personal concept.
A furniture item characterized by a strong identity ideal for home settings such as living rooms and reading areas. The lampshade form recalls the gesture of saying hello by lifting your hat.
Expressing a minimal design, it is composed of a steel structure with four tubular elements and a removable lampshade.
