Besides being in awe of all things beautiful, we’re driven by an appetite for learning and sharing.
Our curiosity about design has no boundaries, yet we often find that the grass is greenest on our own side of the fence. The Italian design legacy is pretty amazing – and just waiting to be explored. So when we’re not working for our clients, we get involved in all sorts of projects that allow us to learn. And since learning is nothing without sharing, nearly every project comes with an open invitation. When and where will we you see next?
For Friends Not For Brands
Our first For Friends Not For Brands event was held back in 2018. Each one has a different theme, and is held at a different venue here in Rome. We’ve had expert speakers talking about everything from custom typography, to the efficiency of brand design, to the role of design in music. Follow us on our social channels to hear about the next event.
“A fertile encounter between generations, between worlds, between talents and dreams, new looks and simple irony. A moment full of meaning and beauty, capable of opening up new perspectives.”

Open Library project
Our growing library of design books is turning into a rich source of inspiration and intriguing reference points. But we’re not just collecting for us. There’s nothing we love more than a fellow aficionados turning up from other parts of the world in order to browse and discuss the contents of our bookshelves.
Italian Designer Archive
If you want to revive and contribute to a design heritage, you have to start by collecting the facts. This is why we geekishly compile our archive over Italian designers and their work – most notably between the lates sixties and the millennium. So if you come across anybody you think we should know about, please reach out. You might need to come and browse our archive first!
