we thrive to find the concepts of beauty
CARCINO Design was founded in Venice in 2021 by architects Maria Pernice and Marco Brotto. Enlivened by the oldest currents of the lagoon city, the duo interprets a universal language of contents and forms, aimed at both East and West. The studio primarily focuses on the search for beauty - so complex to grasp yet concrete in its expression.
Driven by a common conscience and a collective ability to express a language and emphasise communication, the synopsis of their work can be found in the plasticity of the modelled material. CARCINO Design's work is not an end in itself but rather idea, design, material and communication coming together.
"In every object, we thrive to find the concepts of beauty and communication, whose transposition in current language is easily identifiable in quality”.
CARCINO Design always attempts at challenging their creative process and approach to crafting works using the latest modelling tools. Working exclusively with the finest, locally sourced materials, the studio offers handcrafted pieces carefully manufactured in Italy, cultivating local heritage and savoir-faire.
A limited edition exclusively designed by CARCINO Design for October Gallery, which encapsulates the savoir-faire and manufacturing traditions of the Veneto province.
The creation of Clitemnestra is a journey, from the mountains where the blocks of marble are hand carved, to the lagoon, which is the backdrop for traditional glass blowing. The grace and delicacy of Venetian glass mastery meets the subtlety and wisdom of Bassano del Grappa marble. An object that tells the story of the excellence of Venetian handcrafting.
The Cressida Floor Mirror is the result of forms and materials blending together. Thanks to the veining of the marble and the bespoke handcrafting required to master the distinctive block of marble, each piece can be considered unique.
