Every year, we make it a point to spend our summers alongside our artisans in Tuscany. This year, we decided to capture these moments in photographs for the very first time.

These connections have always held a special place for us, something we’ve kept guarded and shielded, hesitant to reveal. Yet, they are profoundly cherished and cultivated. Now, they’ve transformed into an integral part of our extended family.

During a night walk we found ourselves down a moody Venice alley that opened up to a jewel box designed by Carlo Scarpa.

 

The Olivetti Showroom. Located in Venice, Italy, on the northern edge of Piazza San Marco. 

A recognized historical building, where Scarpa’s design has become a museum for itself.  When Scarpa was commissioned by Adriano Olivetti in 1957, it was understood that this showroom would be a space designed to show the products, not only of giving prestige to the famous brand, but also of create a dialogue between Scarpa’s talent as an architect.

Rooted in a sensuous material imagination, the motifs captured us through their rhythmic use of overlapping materials and shapes.

 

That night we sketched our iconic clip sconce, the Ponti. Alabaster and brass because the material closest to Scarpa.
