Emotions becoming objects. The dimension of place

The Chiocciolini collections recall architectural shapes. This attitude is visible in the drawings of Michele Chiocciolini, founder of the Atelier with his sister Francesca. They are born of clean, geometrical lines where softness and fluidity are at home.

Flexible, mental gestures. Emotions becoming objects, material dreams. Results of a lot of work and a complex study where the search for future beauty is based on the awareness of what has passed by.

The most recent collection, "Postcards", narrates three sentimental memory locations in a pop way: Castagno d'Andrea,small village on the Florentine mountains, Florence, where Michele and Francesca live and work, and Marciana Marina on the island of Elba, place of sea, rest and sun.
