Italian Design

I’m an Italian Architect and interior designer, working on site and online on residential and commercial projects, and passionated about graphic design, web and photography. In addition to all this there is the quality of the Italian design, that makes our furniture a must-have. Jose Escobar, of Five Star Painting, applies plaster to a recreation of an Italian apartment at Contents Interiors.

The Italian design excitement and sperimentation found its peak in 60’s, when a great number of ordinary objects were produced.

When the industry was open for the new design culture of the young designers, the wind was taken out of there sails.

Also I think that today for a design-oriented company the most important thing is to be contemporary, and to be contemporary means to work and to invest always in design and innovation.
