Ciszak Dalmas is a young Madrid and Turin – based studio, co-founded in 2009 by industrial designers Alberto Gobbino Ciszak and Andrea Caruso Dalmas. After graduating from the Politecnico of Turin, they joined different design firms such as Inga Sempé in Paris, Artemide in Milan, Brh+ and Pininfarina in Turin. They completed the European Design Labs Master in 2007 in Madrid, taking part in design workshops directed by international designers and firms.
In the belief that changes are possible with relatively small design actions, in 2010 Ciszak Dalmas launched La Clinica a collection of handcrafted furniture produced by local artisans based in three different parts of the world: Madrid (Spain), Turin (Italy) and Sao Paulo (Brazil). La Clinica is based on the interaction between young designers and experienced artisans, which combines new ideas with centuries-old know-how. The result is three different collections made from the same design and produced differently according to the local traditions and material resources.

“There is something about Charlene Mullens embroidery. It could be the quirky humour of her Drawings range, or the pleasingly simple shapes of her Geometric designs, or the clever way she has updated traditional embroidery and folk motifs. Whatever it is, it speaks to people.”

Roy McMakin is a designer, architect, and furniture maker. His art, which draws on his knowledge of and experience within these disciplines, demonstrates deep engagement with the artistic potential of domestic objects and environments. McMakin works with two classes of objects: in sculpture that looks like furniture or mundane household fixtures such as a non-functioning toilet made of wood, and furniture that is detailed or decorated to emphasize its sculptural aspects such as a wooden writing desk painted bright pink. He tests the cultural distinctions of these two types of objects that can at times, occupy the same physical space.


McMakin first brought his work to the public through Domestic Furniture, his Los Angeles showroom (closed in 1991). He continues to engage with the public through Domestic Architecture, his Seattle-based design firm whose portfolio has expanded from remodeling to ground-up home designs. MOCA Pacific Design Center, West Hollywood, California exhibited a survey of McMakin’s art and design work in 2003. Sculptures by McMakin are permanently installed at the University of California’s San Francisco’s Mission Bay campus and in the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle. McMakin lives and works in Seattle.

Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator, engraver of books and a creator of more than 11,000 products. In terms of variety of decoration, Fornasetti’s production of objects and furniture is one of the largest of the 20th century.

Fornasetti is celebrated as being among the most original creative talents of the twentieth century. During his career he created a visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable and unceasingly engaging. Fornasetti designed a magical world, saturated in image and colour and filled with whimsy and wit.

The Fornasetti Atelier in Milan is an outpost of careful and accomplished craft production. Here skilled craftsmen and women use the same rigorous handcrafted techniques as were employed on the very first Fornasetti products. Colour is applied by hand and the original paper patterns are still followed. Maintaining the quality of these methods of making is an important aspect of the Fornasetti legacy.
