What drives your work?
Andrea: Today everything has already been done, there is much more on offer than there is demand. What is the purpose of creating a new product? We see a point in doing it only if the product has a meaning, an added value that goes beyond the product itself.
Who are your clients?
Nat: People who have means but also education and the sensibility to understand and appreciate the concept of our work. We also like to work with public institutions so that our work and the story behind it can be appreciated by a larger public.

What materials do you use?
Andrea: Since we use a lot of wood, we buy a certified one connected to reforestation. We combine it with other elements, for example cement, in this case, we use a special new kind that absorbs carbon dioxide. Then resins, Murano glass, old Kodak films… we like to experiment.
What do you like best about your work?
Nat: There is a lot to be done when it comes to furniture. Historically, it has never been given the same attention as art or fashion. There used to be a rigid division between art and design and I don’t think it’s necessary anymore; I like to feel that I’m taking furniture making to the next level.
