Just by chance last year, I came across this very talented architect/product designer Matteo Gerbi. In fact, he was showing his work at a Craft Central’s pop-up shop in Clerkenwell, London.
What I like about Matteo’s work is that he has created clean, colourful and yet simple innovative objects for the home or interior space. His says that his “aim is to achieve the remarkable in his design by concentrating, in the first instance on function. His preoccupation is with discovering and creating new and different ways to make established objects work; the shapes, materials and colours used are a natural consequence of this process”
When I first met Matteo, I had the privilege of actually viewing his product “Ray Shelf” a smart contemporary shelving system, so I was excited to learn about his new works “Monolitico” the new furnishings collection of shelves, and coat racks, and yes he has more products planned for the future. Matteo’s work is manufactured in the UK, I like that!
Matteo Gerbi Limited will be exhibiting his new products at 100% Design within the Emerging Brands. Date: 18-21 September 2013, Earls Court, London. “Ray Shelf” along side with new products will be display at the Stand D4.
