Studio Italia Design
The exclusive collection presented by the Venetian company, Studio Italia Design, is the outcome of a continuous process of research. What Andrea and Tiziana Tosetto of Studio Italia Design, a brother and sister team, have been able to conceive and create during these years can be defined as a "Workshop".
It's a workshop study, research and production where light, shapes, colours and materials are imbued with such expressive force as to transform them into some of the most important objects in our daily lives.
It is at Studio Italia Design that a continuous dialogue with the most varied artistic forms takes place, that designers, painters, sculptors, musicians, stylists, architects, students and artists transform their ideas into substance. It is here that the relationship between Studio Italia Design and the State Art Institute of Venice is consolidated. This institute is the heir to the Veneto School of Applied Industrial Art, founded in 1872, that right from the outset proposed:
"...to educate those who devote themselves to the decorative arts, to train creators, masters and teachers of applied industrial art for the future..."
When we use object made by Studio Italia Design, we introduce a touch of artistic taste into our daily lives.
