Radice & Orlandini
Andrea Radice and Folco Orlandini graduated at Politecnico University in Milan. The first, in industrial design, the second in architecture. They met after several work experiences. Since 2008 they've been collaborating together on the design of several highly personal and incisive style products for Italian and international companies. Andrea and Folco are guided by the idea of a design intended as an emotion that combines functionality with a lasting shape. They both believe in designing projects that are the synthesis of three elements: paternity, irony and improvement. Each creation is followed through every stage. From the first idea, to the development, to the production, every phase is followed step by step. Irony, understood as a constant search for what goes beyond the simple and obvious meaning of the object, has always distinguished the way of life of the two designers and hence their design approach that is always based on an improvement of what already exists. Growing means improving and improving means to be able to design products that are always better, from a productive, aesthetic, ergonomic, economic, (and much more) point of view then the last.
