Eddy. It is the evening before departure. The destination is the Salone del Mobile in Milan, the first at which Marco and Matteo have participated with the product they have created. And right at that moment, Marco breaks the only diffuser of the lamp they are taking to exhibit. After the initial moment of panic, they manage - with no small difficulty - to obtain another. The project is saved, and their participation in the exhibition is a success. It was tenacity and intelligence that led Marco and Matteo to the Salone, as well as allowing them to create a real design workshop all of their own in 2011 after having fantasised about it all through their college years,.
Santa Design is a multidisciplinary centre which deals with every aspect of design, from product design to communication. It offers itself as a flexible partner for companies, with the aim of turning an idea into a finished product. Their brand is called Scaleno, and through direct liaison with the client they can lower production costs by offering high-quality services with reasonable prices. While trying to establish the prestige of their brand, Marco and Matteo travelled up and down the country, playing cat and mouse with their clients and reinventing themselves for each meeting.
Despite the more favourable climate that might await them abroad, Rome is their home and that's where they've decided to stay. Thanks to their initiative they have found companies and clients who see in their products something in which to invest and believe, like their no-drip ice cream cone, magnetic knife rack and elastic fruit bowl, without forgetting Eddy, the gardening glove that has earned the Roman company a gamut of awards. The goal they have most at heart, though, is to grow in size, involving more and more designers and artists, increasing their potential and supplying increasingly innovative ideas and creations.
