Significant objects

Actual shape of an ancient tradition, BAM Design has a name inspired by the sound of the hammer on the anvil. Between the blacksmith’s shop and the contemporary approach, the creations – craft and conceptual – speak Sardinian without the need of a translation, thanks (also) to the evocative power of the visual communication project signed by Gianluca Vassallo

Sculpt the everyday

Ironic and evocative, material and artisanal. Toscanini’s centenary clothes hangers (1920-2020) were made by five artists who interpreted and sculpted, starting from a block of wood, their personal vision of an object of everyday use, transforming it into a work of art

Slow design

Young and enterprising, they have started a small artisan workshop in the North Italy, permeated by Mediterranean inspirations that look (also) to the Souther. The new experimental art brand Studio Terre creates unique pieces – ancestral, everyday, imperfect – by shaping clay with your hands

The rediscovery of do-it-yourself

We certainly didn’t invent much during lockdown. But do-it-yourself took off with unexpected enthusiasm and creativity. The dream of Enzo Mari in 1974 – to return operative power to the hands of ordinary people – becomes reality in time of need
