Love and creation, these are Elena and Claudio’s strong points. Founder of two-years old Studioventotto, the couple deals with design the way they deal with life: by using creativity and irony. Milady, Johnny Stecchino, Rocket, Camilla are four of their products, all sharing simplicity and functionality, as well as Elena and Claudio’s private life influences.
The latest piece, Johnny Stecchino, has been displayed at 2013 Fuorisalone thanks to the collaboration with Slowd, a local group of young emerging designers who deliver their products personally to their customers. Studioventotto’slatest piece has been created in collaboration with ArtelegnoLab skilled woodworkers: it is an ash-wood standing coat-rack made of two poles linked by colorful knobs. A simple piece of design characterized by functionality and flexibility.
Its name is a tribute to Roberto Benigni’s thin bony character Johnny Stecchino. The perfect result of combining simplicity, irony and love.
