Supplier of the Week: Sabrina Fossi Design

Sabrina Fossi is an Italian designer creating innovative products with a focus on minimalism. The light-hearted and playful homeware pieces are handmade in Florence, celebrating the prestigious Made in Italy label.

We spoke with Sabrina to find out more.

 

How did Sabrina Fossi Design originate?

Sabrina Fossi Design started its own production in 2013 in partnership with LIAF, a company based near Florence that has been creating handmade interiors and products for home and commercial spaces since 1984.

 

You have a very minimal style. Why is this important to you?

I do indeed have a minimal style. For me "design" is about simplicity and functionality.

How does your Italian heritage affect you design?

My Italian heritage affects my production; each product has made by Italian master craftsman. Each object benefits from the rich experience that the craftsmen have passed down through generations.

What does a typical studio day look like?

My typical studio day is at the computer, either designing new products or establishing new partnerships. When I'm not at the PC I follow the production, controlling the quality of the products to ensure it is always of the highest standard.

 

What is new for 2016/17?

I'm not planning any exhibitions this year, but I am going to be launching some exciting new products soon and not only for home, so watch this space...!
