Both hold a degree in architecture from the University of Venice, Alberto Brogliato and Federico Traverso founded the BrogliatoTraverso design studio after undertaking journeys and experiences that allowed them to enrich their personal and professional backgrounds, such as the exploration of the art of glassmaking in Murano and traditional ceramics in Japan.
The philosophy that defines the BrogliatoTraverso studio can be summarized by the claim: “NO TIME, NO SPACE”.
This highly personal design method captures their desire to create objects that are atemporal and acontextual. The two professionals work through subtraction, creating works that are rich with details that are nearly imperceptible.
Through their projects they create an intimate and profound empathy with users and with the surrounding space, by remaining respectful of both; such as the Newood chair series, made by BrogliatoTraverso for Cappellini, in which the forms are elegantly whispered.
This vision and their ongoing passion for research and innovation has earned the BrogliatoTraverso studio numerous international awards, such as the Red Dot Design Award, the German Design Award, The iF Design Award and the Good Design Award.
