Design in Italy in critical times

Esploratori dello spazio

A do-it-yourself alphabet in folded paper to write big sized analogical messages on walls. Molded in letter shapes, the second hand papers earn a new life and are charged with their author’s time and care. The message will take after them.

icon-archi Esploratori dello Spazio was born in 2002 - from the graphic designer Sauro Antimi and the architect Benedetta Masi - with the aim to create a life-enhancing design whose artefacts light, pleasant and human make everyday life brighter.
