Designed by Pocci & Dondoli
The Pocci & Dondoli studio was founded by Claudio Dondoli and Marco Pocci in the 80’s as an industrial design and architecture project. During their studies in Florence, Claudio and Marco focused theatre design. Subsequently, elements of theatrical design were of fundamental influence in the structuring of their design studio: creativity, sense of reality, respect and attention to their audience. But also, the imperative that form follows function. That good design must utilize processes and materials in a way that provides utilitarian solutions.
Surrounding that ambition with good aesthetic has afforded Claudio and Marco numerous awards for furniture design. To them design is beauty, harmony, and freedom; it cannot be limited to a fixed strict rules, nor can it be a privilege of an elite. The designer has the duty to create beauty for everybody and to bring good design to the masses. Nestled in the Tuscan hills, they carry this tradition forward as a leader in Italian contemporary industrial design today.
