During Milan Design Week, Gio Tirotto and Hafsteinn Juliusson exhibited pieces that represented a clash of urban environment and contemporary living. The designers displayed interior and urban furniture, jewelry, apparel and accessories united by a language in the balance between art and design.

Observing some behaviors, understanding their smartness.
Re-interpreting the “habit” of temporary seat on your Vespa, presenting it again with the most classical Italian designs’ shape. It is an elastic product that can adapt itself to any place or situation, starting from a common scooter parking or a public transportation stop, and arriving in front of clubs and restaurants. Furniture, object, sculpture. At home? It is possible.

Tombino (Manhole)
A clean surface, a studied portion. An important simplicity, so important that it forgets, like Gloria, the driving license on the table, next to the fruit.

Piccioni (Pigeons)
Why should we go out when the most beautiful square of the city is our living room?

Nastro (Tape)
Some tape wraps the air of our city, making it comfortable. Tape plays with its resistance and its light shape, twisting the obvious and heavy habit of urban furniture, so versatile that can be also part of our  intern design.

A story doesn’t live only thanks to a book, it can access anywhere and it can also come out from a bookcase.
Libería’s concept was born by observing the furniture that is spread in our cities offering us free press, small cages that donate us stories. Following this way of thinking, even the bookcase of our home can give us free dreams, a piece of a novel, or free from the dust a book that we have ALMOST left

Cono (Cone)
A street cone-shaped lamp.
