First appearing during the Renaissance in Europe, the ‘curiosity cabinet’ was the forerunner of the natural history museumIt was a place where amazing objects, collected with a certain taste for diversity and the unusual, were displayed.What we wanted to do was give the curiosity cabinet a new style and bring it into the world of interior design, so as to combine the beauty of Nature with the aesthetics of a place and a periodThat’s why we’re constantly on the look-out around the world to unearth genuine natural curiosities, and we work on a broad range of accessories that have a strong cultural connotation.
We make something beautiful out of the extraordinary things Nature has created.
