òè studio San Marino
Simplify matter. A meeting of wood and cement.
òè studio is a multi-disciplinary meeting place, where different souls and skills mix together in graphic, communication, product and set-up projects. We deal with design complexity through method, playing and having fun with experimenting, colours and materials. At end 2016, the Concrèti came to life; first self-production project, from the research into moulded casting and cement, a structural building material becoming a table product. Concrèti are kitchen recipients and can contain spices, salt and sugar. Design functionality found in the stackable containers and wooden caps, that can rotate to close the opening or allow the spoon to be left in it. The inside is enamelled with products certified for contact with food.
