The Italian duo Servemuto are Alessandro Poli and Francesca De Giorgi – a unique blend of architecture and graphic design in the form of product designers.
Inspired by vintage products they have created an exquisite range of over-sized light shades with comedic undertones. Using salvaged trimmings and old fabrics from army blankets to theater curtains the pair from South Italy spend most of their time in Milan creating unusual products.
The colourful shades continue to be made by hand in the style and method used by Francesca’s family in the 1960’s, hence the idea of ‘family’ lampshades. Using meticulous finishes of the Florentine tradition, their artisan work is of the highest level. Not only are their products unique but their entire brand oozes concept, tradition and style.
For those of you who can’t make 100% Design, you can see their wonderful creations at Animali Domestici in Brixton.
