What are your specialities?
We were both trained in classical decoration, and we like to combine all the traditional techniques –fake marble, fake wood, gilding, glazing and trompe l'oeil with our knowledge of modern art. This allows us a wide-ranging exploration of the unlimited potential of this decorative art.
Is your craft more tied to tradition or innovation?
For us, innovation cannot exist without a deep knowledge of traditional techniques, which express a continuum of the values of man. Behind the creation of a wallpaper there is a great deal of research and testing and the ability to draw new inspiration from one’s mistakes.
Do you collaborate with designers and artists?
We create drawings, patterns and site-specific projects with some of the best international artists and designers. They are exclusive, four-handed collaborations, in which dialogue and interchange are essential ingredients.
Are you engaged in training apprentices?
The training of apprentices is a vital part of our work: we consider it a generational exchange, because they bring vitality, enthusiasm and creativity. In return we offer the ability to manage their creativity, as well as the wealth of knowledge that comes from 30 years of experience.
