Materia Design is for Rosalba Galati and Laura Santi the result of a shared passion for materials and their pliability. An esplorative energy guides both hands and mind towards the creation of jewelry new in shape and perceptually diverse in conception. Unlike traditional jewelry, its preciousness is obtained through playful creativity and free use of forms. The two-woman team’s exceptional sensitivity to form and detail, their unusual use of materials and contrasts contribute to turning an intuition into a decorative item that surprises, delights and, through its sensorial power, matches the style of the wearer.
