Spalvieri & Del Ciotto design studio is a meeting place for ideas, research and experimentation. Our work is characterized by formal, functional simplicity coupled with an intense emotional component, based on the idea that every design object should reflect our experience and be something that is worth passing down to future generations, containing and preserving a piece of our history. We liaise with some major Italian and foreign design firms and have been awarded several prizes in international contests. In 2013 we was awarded by Massimo Vignelli with the first prize of the “Top Young Italian Industrial Designers Prize”.
Both born in 1982, we met in 2003, during our BA in Industrial Design. We became a couple in life and then at work and are now a design duo. We have lived and worked in Milan, London and are now based in Tolentino, a small town in central Italy surrounded by nature. Our educational and professional experience mirrors our personal interests.
