Artwood Showroom Florence – 7 Feb 2012
An abandoned warehouse and the need of bringing inside a new contemporary world are the reasons for a new reinterpretaion of the unused space.
“Second life” is a philosofical (but not only) reinterpretation that allows the use and the improvement of the neglected buildings inventing their new life, therefore giving them a second chance.

Pitti Uomo Firenze Design
Presenting a solution for communal seating which is adaptable on many levels, the Archetto was initially designed for the Buyer’s Club at the 2011 Pitti Uomo, a large fashion trade fair held in Florence, Italy. The brief was to make the best use of a small temporary space, to give substance and luxury to what could otherwise be boring and nondescript.
