"When an idea turns into a wall made by a man for other human beings,
is something amazing. You feel that what is coming to life has a special meaning.
Yet, you know nothing about the secret thread this experience is intimately tied to.
It is like a soft vague voice from very far away, which constantly regenerates itself
and speaks of things to come…past, present, future…
Happiness for an architect is to see a wall, a space coming to life,
and that happiness is even greater when he perceives
that his creations suggest further development, some kind of follow-up.” (Giovanni Michelucci, La felicità dell’architetto)
Architecture has a teacher, the Genius Loci. It tells us how to draw a project that respects culture and nature in a territory where we are called to build. Listening to the Genius Loci, our ideas adapt to history and geography. Hence, an architecture emerges that makes the most of local traditions and new technologies in order to create sustainable solutions, save resources, generates measurable economic results, while contributing to beauty.
Interior design Sustainability starts from inside. Most human relations and expressions of creativity happen inside buildings. Just like most of our daily life. That means that cultures and social structures are what interior design is called to serve, inside buildings that we design, to save resources and energy. Thus, an interior design emerges that is simple, essential and light because of the transparency of its form and function.
Product design Less weight and more light. We create products that tell ideas without words. Products that are mobile because contemporary lives are nomadic. Products that tell stories of sustainability because environmental necessities ask for it. Our design is essential, economical, transparent: simple but necessary gestures serve a daily life that goes well beyond our present life.
