Matter Matters / The Chef

Lucky us! We had the chance to visit at work Daniele Zennaro, chef of the renowned restaurant Vecio Fritolin in Venezia, close to the Rialto bridge. He prepared for us three wonderful dishes from the holiday menu (+ a little interview to follow), all exploring different consistencies and tasteful transformations of matter.

Charcoal & Glitter

Best Wishes Everyone!

Celebrating a year of projects, paper, pictures, wood, expectations, failures, aesthetic fights and applied arts in Venice.

During these holidays we'll try to do our best (# family, overeating, moderate boredom). The pictures are of our little party in the studio of last Friday.

See you next year!
