"I do not create what you want, but what you didn't know you wanted"
Giovanni, it is the Classics, pure and elegant, that best adapt themselves
to the needs of modern times and those to come. Their timelessness and
linearity of form furnish a fertile terrain for the development of functional
and revolutionary ideas. Giovanni uses digital technology to create and
manipulate shape, giving birth to a new vocabulary of design that is based
on the transformation of geometry. He develops innovative techniques for
the utilisation of traditional materials. Rejecting the frenzy of modern
times, Giovanni chooses an antique Victorian hand-press, to laboriously
sculpt leather into a three-dimensional print, which is unwonted and inimitable.
