Describe what your studio does: we largely work on interior architecture in almost all its shapes and forms, from domestic spaces to public ones; this has also led to product design projects, such as our collaboration with ex.t – a bathroom brand – and to designing tiles with Ceramica Vogue for which we curated the visual and commercial image.
Where did you study? Adelaide, Industrial Design at SPD (Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan), while Andrea studied Architecture at the Turin Polytechnic.
What are you working on right now? A range of private apartments, including one in Turin inside a fantastic building designed by Ada Bursi in the 1950s (she graduated in 1938 from the Regia Scuola Superiore di Architettura in Turin, and was one of the first female architects in Italy), and we have designed a space for a well-known Italian beverage brand due to open soon in Venice, which will bring some of its offices and production back to the Cannaregio district.
Your dream project?
Adelaide: a house in the mountains or a pizzeria.
Andrea: a church.
