Carlo Bartoli He declares: "I like to design products that last for years, not intrusive and that give the feeling of always being where you place them, but nevertheless that provoke the imagination. My effort is to draw stimulating objects and avoid banality, while everyday objects that become part of the everyday landscape in non-overbearing way, to give psychological well-being and comfort. For this reason we direct the design process towards a balance, trying to transfer the product cultural values, respect for the dignity of tradition and technological innovations when they bring benefit to the product. The firm is like a Renaissance workshop, we are between five and ten people; We discuss, criticize or dismantle the ideas during the design process. We are looking for long-lived products - the quality most important for us - that normally we refine with a gradual process and through a continuous dialogue with the companies. "
