City benchmark

Very excited to announce that 'city benchmark' has been included in an article by Wallpaper* magazine.

The City of London is the financial heart of Britain, one of the major finance hubs on the globe and home of the London Stock Exchange. Drawing inspiration from the graphic language of stock charts, the design refers to undulating graphs of green and red bars representing profit and loss. The two benches complement each other in a yin&yang like relationship: green becomes red, profit turns into loss. The simple, one-dimensional chart becomes interpretable, depending on the view point.

Paper tavolino

Paper-Tavolino started as a response to an actual problem. In many cities people live in very compact dwellings, with a real lack of physical storage space. Although we’re now living in the digital age, many of us still have the deeply human habit of collecting objects. Those who have not (yet) swapped the physical for its digital ‘equivalent’ find themselves often in the dilemma of having to free up space, ridding themselves of the items they’ve been passionately collecting.

As collectors of magazines, we faced exactly that problem and have come up with a solution, albeit only temporary: we repurposed the magazines to a piece of furniture, a bedside table.. this allowed us to keep the magazines, but they now own their right to stay!!
