Marco usually draws when he is traveling. It is outside from the hectic office life that his creativity expresses itself better. Antea really likes quite days in their atelier close to Piazza Navona. That’s is when she has the chance to really focus on the development of their projects. But it is mainly thanks to the luxury of living in the beautiful historic city of Rome that aesthetic beauty can be channeled every day from our life to our designs.
What we do is a re-interpretation of classic motifs…from 18th centuries french wallpapers to orient-style ceramics: we draw with a contemporary bi-dimensional style elements that are part of the artistic tradition. We relate strongly with classic elements but we like to give them new life in a way that can fit in any kind of contemporary home, or clothes that a contemporary woman can wear without being alienated from other clothes she might have in her wardrobe. We like playing with the artistic sense of authenticity but always with respect towards the historical context from which we draw our inspiration.
