Andrea Radice and Folco Orlandini collaborate together on the design of several highly personal and incisive style products. Graduates at the Milan Politecnico, the first in industrial design, the second in architecture, meet after several work experiences. In 2008 they started a creative relationship that led to the implementation of several projects for Italian and international companies. Andrea and Folco, guided by the idea of design intended as an emotion that combines functionality with a lasting shape. They believe in designing projects that are the synthesis of three elements: paternity, irony and improvement. Each creation is followed through all stages of growth. From the first idea to the development to the production, every phase 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. Since 2008, RADICEORLANDINI studio has designed dozens of products for various furniture companies such as Alivar, Casprini, Domitalia, Dorelan, Elite UK, Fast, Infiniti, Metalmobil, Potocco, Quinti Sedute, Schuster Brazil, Skitsch.
