Founders/Designers angelettiruzza design
Silvana Angeletti and Daniele Ruzza design essential objects, capable of existing over time and able to relate to environments and people. They have been industrial designers since 1994, when Guzzini put their Zazà coffee maker into production, still in the catalog.
They have collaborated with numerous Italian industrial companies in the sectors of furniture, lighting, furnishing accessories, household appliances and bathroom furniture, pushing contamination and experimentation in the different areas but always within a dialogue with the project partners. The aesthetics of their products come from the synthesis between function, attention to detail and knowledge of production techniques.
This concrete approach to design has always been the basis for teaching at the Industrial Design courses at the University of Ascoli Piceno (from 2012 to 2014) and at the IED in Rome (from 2010 to 2018). Angeletti and Ruzza have been artistic directors of various companies during the years and today of Bottega Intreccio, KALON and GLOBO.
They have been able to push companies outside of their "comfort zone", understanding their identity and productive knowhow, promoting new types of products and research ideas on materials, techniques and, more generally, life needs.
Some of their design products are part of the permanent collection of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum and many others have been awarded the most important international design awards. Awards that have confirmed product innovation, but also the ability to design in areas such as graphics or installations.
