Finding meeting points between interior design and projects for the world of Taste: impossible? We are trying to do it. Designing means being curious, travelling, observing, being constantly able to adopt a different point of view, listening, learning from other disciplines, gaining new skills, finding an interest in topics that stretch beyond the realm of art and transcend the borders of our knowledge. It means setting off on a challenging journey, where nothing is what it seems and everything keeps changing, and every idea is improved, transformed and explained before being brought to life. We carry out this exciting task in projects that contain architectural composition, design, graphics, creation of events, thanks to our experience, but also through a network of Italian and international professionals working with our team.
