CARLO & FRANCO DE RE
We create design objects which recognise ourselves in
From Australia where we were born, to Friuli, which has always been our home, In all parts of the world we have collected ideas and inspirations tranforming simple objects into design objects.
In each land a culture, and with it the knowledge of its people.Feelings that come straight from the nature of the materials, from the form, the colours, the history of that place. Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia: these are the cardinal points of a journey that we have not only chosen, but that has always been part of our DNA, part of our design objects. The true essence of elite, TO BE.
Carlo and I gather that object We make that corner of the world ours, and we pack it carefully in our luggage together with all its suggestions and all ideas and inspirations that create our design objects.
Then another journey begins.throughtout places, materials, encounters and suggestions. TO SEARCH FOR WHAT WE LOVE. TO FIND WHAT WE ARE.
is the way in which I and Carlo conceive design, or the way of living space.
