Giopato & Coombes
3 years ago we were missing something. We imagined a more fluid approach to design. A form of total creation from brief to market. We saw the world ever more connected and wanted to embrace positivity. We imagined products born from supernatural daydreams where everything is possible. But can we write our own story?
First we had to go off the beaten track and break free from the Italian design establishment. Empowering our own independence. But who is going to trust us? What do we need to learn? How do we find the right artisans for our projects?
So we began as always by designing, but we needed a product that would unite our passion, both intuitive and rational.
We chose lighting due to the surprise of the immaterial, the multisensorial object that can become magical.
And straight into the exhibition with 2 weeks to develop the LED light bulb because we had to dip future into the heritage of Murano glass blowing.
In this process we have learnt that we must explore our individual talents without boundaries. It is necessary to evolve and not repeat the same design cycles of the last 50 years. Today we have many routes to market and methods to express ourselves as designers.
We are finally independent, exploring new territories, creating connections that promote human dialogue and expertise, one light at a time.
