What inspired your Clodomiro range?
Being Italian I’ve always been surrounded by design. Even when I didn’t even know what design was! In Italy design is part of everyday life, we read a book under a Castiglioni light, type on a Sottsass typewriter and our grandmas sit on a Magistretti couch. We ride our Vespa and pour coffee from a beautifully-designed moka every morning. We love objects!
My dad who’s a photographer called me one day saying, “why don’t we make some objects together?” I said “why not?” and he added, “but the theme has to be slightly erotic” and I replied “Ok Dad”. That’s how we started with a series of china plates, then a silk scarf, some t-shirts and soon there will be pillows!
Everything we end up making gets chosen after months (if not years) of sketches, samples, visits to local artisans and it’s made with love and attention to details. We always try to get better and do it slowly but with passion.
