We are architects, engineers, designers, artists.

However, we don’t like traditional labels: we are a bit of all this; but we are also biologists, alchemists, humanists.

We use our multi-disciplinary know-how to explore contemporary society and understand how progress can improve it. Our goal is not technological innovation per se, but human advancements: we want to enhance human life and work, helping people to - better – face future challenges. To do this, we use “horizontal expertise” to contaminate different “worlds” and develop innovative projects: we use coding to inform shapes and minimize production waste; we use biology to produce green-energy systems; we use microorganisms to make interactive living paintings.
We apply an innovation-driven design method boosted by scientific and technological advancements to develop our projects, which range from public buildings, to product design items, to art installations.
We act invisible, without highlighting our intervention nor our presence.
We are "interferences" within already-consolidated processes, and we generate positive contaminations between art, craftsmanship, design, IT and science.
