In the firm’s own words: “The products of Cappellini are never boring neither absurd, but they always possess something of alive and light, often full of healthy humor, other times proposing brave and dynamics formal solutions: these are the characteristics that make the collection Cappellini full of vivacious fractures and contradictions.”
