Who we are


Where we started from

We met for the first time one night of September 2013, thanks to common friends. A deep harmony was born at once, both human and cultural, about travels, friendships, lifestyle. Even in the silliest and deepest thoughts, we found ourselves both aligned: at times with a simple exchange of glances, others by comparing our opinions.

Over the time we have had the opportunity to visit houses, even important ones, where everything was apparently in the right place, with valuable pieces, fine finishing and design coherence.

It often happened, already at the end of the evening, maybe in the lift, to look into each other's eyes and share the same concerns about the visited spaces. A recurring thought led us to ask ourselves a question: does this house really reflect the needs, desires and soul of its owner? The most frequent answer was to perceive the lack of a link between the owners and their home. And our thoughts ended up there.

The idea of creating an activity in the world of design was more and more strengthened over the time, with a decisive acceleration during the complete renovation of our apartment in Milan.

Despite we are two kinds of people completely different - physically, in the mind, because of family histories and training - we were happily surprised to find ourselves in harmony in our choices, even starting from different positions.

In the meantime, in a moment when we both had our profession and our certainties, the famous lamp lit up and we started designing a projecting idea that could be related to the world of interior design.

We wondered if it was possible to be involved in projects of spaces with a different approach, more human, putting at the centre of the project our customer with his/her own living, his/her own passions and lifestyle.

The interior designer, the architect and mostly the interior decorator – the one who advises and gives a contribution to re-invent the places of another person - should always project the spaces of another person, not his own.

After careful reflection on this matter, we understood that the right way is starting from a deep dialogue with the costumer with the space to “re think”. Our goal is not selling a premade project, it is not to suggest any.

Our purpose, our goal, is to build up a beautiful and functional space, , with an aesthetic and energetic harmony corresponding to the character, the needs and lifestyle of the owner of that place. Indeed, it is possible that the customers changes his/her own ideas, modifying some points of view regarding stylistic and functional choices of the house once he has discussed with us.

Because our contribution also consists in letting our customers know solutions never thought beforesuggesting colours not even imagined, imagining distributives not considered. The project will always be a synthesis among our acknowledgements, skills, competences, aesthetic and planning sensibilities, and the view and the needs of our customers. We believe in the dialogue as a projecting method!

Since I was a child I have always been a great observer, I used to watch everything, really everything, up to the most apparently negligible details. It was like a game: if there was something I didn't like I imagined how to improve it. My mother was impressed by my advice, especially because it was given by a little boy.

Even today I happen to enter a house and I immediately think about possible improvements. Now, after my statement, nobody will invite me ever again! Seriously, I wanted to turn this attention and attitude into a job. My task will be on two fronts: to improve the house aesthetically and make it more functional.

What do I mean by functional? To me, functional means easy to live in and manage. Everything can be beautiful and luxurious but if space is not functional, if it cannot be “handled” in everyday life, beauty alone can be a limit. An elementary example? Impeccable houses at first sight, with important furniture but with no space to store brooms.

Another example? Shoes under the bed or left in a corner. Of course with an arc lamp in the living room. Before designing a space and buying furniture, before choosing lights and accessories, before impulsively purchasing a house - perhaps fascinated by a nice rendering - have you really thought about the everyday functionality of the rooms?

A couple of examples: the presence of storage closet VS no storage space, sofa with removable cover VS sofa with not removable cover up to the floor. This strong attitude about observation is the result of my "mania" on cleanliness and order of spaces. I love impeccable homes, I love homes that work well.

Over the years, this passion for beauty - which was often accompanied by a careful analysis of places, houses, public and private spaces - has turned into a Degree in Architecture and constant study and updating on the world of interior design and art.

If beauty means harmony, we should devote ourselves to the harmony of our homes, to redesign places where we can feel good, places that correspond to ourselves, our lives, our specific energy. After more than 15 years of experience in important design companies, the desire to get myself back in the game has grown inside of me - almost as if it were a natural evolution of my life path.

I would like to talk to you, in order to get to know you, to understand who you are, to understand your real needs: how do you imagine your home? What functions must it fulfill? Which styles and languages are the closest to your sensitivity? Do you want a dynamic home that can easily change, or do you prefer a "final" home? I would like to help you in your choice of furnishings, lights, colors, wallpaper, materials, all that will design the place of your life.

Each of us should have the right to be in harmony, to feel good: with ourselves, when we are alone at home, with the others, when we share an evening with friends. From my experience, I assure you that places, with their furnishings and with their "soul", strongly influence our state of mind. There are many studies of psycho-design dealing with these themes. Our home must represent our identity and, of course, it must work.

Le Corbusier wrote: "Une maison est une machine-à-habiter"and it is true. But a car doesn't have to be the same for everyone. We are the ones who choose the model, the cylinder capacity, accessories, color and scent. If you need a hand to think about changes to be made, if you want a support that will accompany you in the world of interior design, if you want to discuss with me, with us, to improve your spaces, to make them more beautiful, more human, more functional, I am in, we are in!
