06D Atelier is an Italian duo based in London founded by Mauro Fragiotta and Francesca Adami. Born and trained in Italy they both gained experiences in high-end design projects collaborating with practices in Italy and UK before starting their partnership in late 2017. Thanks to their both artistic and technical experiences they can operate in a wide range of projects, bringing together different influences to create revolutionary works combining design with art.
"Our works are not only a combination of technical and aesthetic characteristics but also the result of experiences, research and our cultural heritage. For us each project is a unique process that leads to a radically new result."
06D Atelier explore and modify relationships between objects, environment and humans, experimenting with materials, shapes and functionality. The research of the 06D Atelier closely interweaves aesthetics and technique: the very essence of the materials is expressed to the perfection, eliminating the need for additional frills and decorations.
