ABOUT US

Our glance turns to man, who with his manual skills becomes a precious tool of culture and investigation into the land. Through his working hands, a thread unravels speaking of life, of experiences, insights and creativity that make every object perfect in its imperfection, containing the story that made it unique, capable of enchanting and being so special for those who will possess it joining the tale of he who has designed and created it. 

Paragraphs of narratives that designers, deeply rooted "radicati" as we like to define them, know how to shape, pander, break and direct the orchestra of contemporary using new languages, new materials, new visions in a bond that exacerbates the limits of each other overcoming their boundaries.

Editamateria is a Turin based brand focuses on the relationship between creativity and the culture of knowhow becoming a collection point for Italian creativity and Italian materials, expressions of the Italian style and Italian “savoir vivre”. Launched in 2014 with the passion of Silvia Ariemma, founder and creative director of the brand, her research directed towards contemporary design with a focus on craft. Inspired by the 2012 Turin Design Week exhibit “Wabi Sabi, Italian Slow Design” which she co-curated, Ariemma began her quest to develop and promote this imperfectly perfect design aesthetic through ongoing collaborations with the Italian slow designers.The brand  has collaborated over the years with a number of contemporary designers and makers and was presented internationally for the first time at the Design Museum of Holon in 2015,  during the Italy-Israel Design Forum, with the exhibition ” Editamateria Liquid Glass”. During the 2018 Milano Design Week, Editamateria worked with an Italian creative team in order to give the guest visitor a totally Italian experience, combining design, craftsmanship, art, fashion and the specially composed background music.In one of the evocative tunnels of Ventura Centrale, Editamateria presented the installation “una stanza with Antonio Aricò" bringing the visitor back to the past, to an  archaic and primordial vision, a room where the essential becomes indispensable.With a peek into an intimate ad sophisticated Vita Italiana where Credenza, Fratino and Scrittoio all designed by Antonio Aricò represented a wood collection of primitive, sculptured, heavy, and ever-present materials.

Editamateria works also as a talent scouter and a creative agency aimed at discovering and promote the work of designers, artists and artisans, and as an agency promoting the “MADE IN”, to prototype, to create and to edit new collections destined to public and private clients around the world.

Silvia Ariemma​. Founder and Creative Director of Editamateria
Graduated in Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Turin in 1997. Soon after her degree she started working in the art world with the painter Daniele Galliano, collaborating with his exhibitions and related cultural events.
Since 2011, her research is also addressed to the survey in the field of contemporary design, with emphasis on "handcrafted design”.
In 2012 Silvia co-curated the exhibition "Wabi Sabi, Italian slow design", presented in Turin during the Torino Design Week and in 2013 in Milan at the Galleria Paola Colombari during the Salone del Mobile.
In the same years she collaborated with the Galleria Antonella Villanova in Florence, with whom she participated at  Design Miami/Basel in 2013.
The exhibition "Wabi Sabi. Italian slow design" is the starting point from which she focused her investigation. There are numerous collaborations with designers who took part at the exhibition and with whom many projects followed, all fueled by continuous exchanges and comparisons, in the search of harmony and uniqueness.
