How did Sabrina Fossi Design originate?

Sabrina Fossi Design started its own production in 2013 in partnership with LIAF, a company based near Florence that has been creating handmade interiors and products for home and commercial spaces since 1984.

 

You have a very minimal style. Why is this important to you?

I do indeed have a minimal style. For me “design” is about simplicity and functionality.

ColoredSHAPE Lamps are available in black, blue, grey, salmon and white

FreakishCLOCKS are available in beigeblack-green, black-red, black-white, black-yellow, green, pink and yellow

 

How does your Italian heritage affect you design?

My Italian heritage affects my production; each product has made by Italian master craftsman. Each object benefits from the rich experience that the craftsmen have passed down through generations.

What does a typical studio day look like?

My typical studio day is at the computer, either designing new products or establishing new partnerships. When I’m not at the PC I follow the production, controlling the quality of the products to ensure it is always of the highest standard.

 

What is new for 2016/17?

I’m not planning any exhibitions this year, but I am going to be launching some exciting new products soon and not only for home, so watch this space…!
