"una stanza" with Antonio Aricò

Milano Design Week 2018, Ventura Centrale
17 - 22 April 2018

Editamateria continues its journey to experience the matter in encounters between future and past, between origins and new paths, between preservation and innovation. On the occasion of the Milano Design Week 2018, Editamateria explores the relationship between man and his objects, enclosed and free in “una stanza”, objects that become emotions and awaken memories and sensations, living matter around oneself.

una stanza, which brings us an almost archaic and primordial vision, a closed place, an intimate place, a place that is alive, a place to live in, a place that contains everything and where everything is contained. The main room, where man spends most of his time.

A room where the essential becomes indispensable.

a  credenza to cherish

a fratino to share

T Fondaco dei Tedeschi, DFS, Venice Glass Week
10-17 September 2017

Venice, July 2017— On the occasion of the Venice Glass Week 2017, the T Fondaco dei Tedeschi will reassert its commitment towards supporting and enhancing local craftsmanship and artistic talent by hosting Metamorphosis, a project by Camilla Brunelli and Simone Crestani for Editamateria, a company engaged in exploring the relationship between culture, creativity and know-how through the realization of collections,expressions of a style and the Italian savoir vivre. Ever since prehistoric times, human beings have drawn inspiration, forms,mechanisms and instruments from the world around them: design and nature are thus connected by an ancestral bond. The glass works of Metamorphosis explore this relationship.
A ‘metamorphosis’ is the phenomenon through which an insect's exoskeleton – which at the same time supports and protects its body – is replaced by a larger one as it grows, often bringing important, sometimes ontological, formal changes. In the case of Brunelli and Crestani's works, the metamorphosis led to a conceptual leap: the exoskeleton turned from the shell of an insect into a human artefact.

Design walks through Venice, curated by Design.VE, Palazzo Loredan, Venice
May 25th- June 26th 2016

On the occasion of Design.Ve, the first design fringe festival spread around Venice, held in coincidence with the first month of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition , Editamateria  is proud to present the new collection
starting from Andrea Bouquet’s Bouisoun Consolle, where wood retains its original spontaneous character mixed with re ned wood textures.

At Wood Obsession there is also room for selected items and accessories made of white ceramic, opal glass, alabaster, copper, steel and felt. They rest on the furniture, they are placed on book shelves or they are free to oat in the air. Their role is to accompany the visitor’s look beyond furniture and to harmonise the interior decoration and the mounting, one room after the other.

Editamateria is present also in this sector with The Blowing Man Collection by Antonio Aricò, the Alabastri Collection by Roberto Sironi and  Agatha’s Room installation by Paolo Polloniato, where an aggregation of Formanova and a Metamutante - made by assembling white clay elements by leakage, manipulation and contamination of different rough shapes taken from the historical moulds of the Nove manufacturing tradition - will invade the Palace’s old boudoir.

L' Eclaireur_Editamateria: Form + Function + Story

Wabi Sabi design with stories that transcend the aesthetic.
19th April 2016

Founded in 2014, the Italian collective Editamateria is a project, a brand and a journey rooted in common passions and creativity. Stories are told. Stories are made. With multiple designers creating under this young label’s umbrella, the tactile and inventive brainchild of Silvia Ariemma and Rebecca Treves has nurtured a deeply researched and delightful array of objets and furniture to share with the world.Ariemma and Treves came together from distinctly different backgrounds through which each woman’s respective strength complements the other’s. Inspired by the 2012 Turin Design Week exhibit “Wabi Sabi, Italian Slow Design” (re-shown in 2013 during Milan’s Salone del Mobile) 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 she had tapped for the show. Weaving her design and creative background with the business and export expertise of Treves, the duo launched the collective, and is today an emerging design tour de force, with their designers’ exceptionally compelling and thoughtful work traveling the globe.“The Blowing Man”, a stunningly minimalist, limited edition Editamateria capsule collection of five hand-blown borosilicate glass vessels, is designed by Antonio Aricò, and features The Blowing Man in action. Watching him “perform” his craft, balanced atop or wrangling these sublime, curvaceous forms is to feel the soulful delicacy of breath itself. Editamateria’s “The Blowing Man” collection is available at LECLAIREUR Boissy d'Anglais, Hérold and Sévigné.




Milan Design Week 2016
12th-17th April 2016_C.so Garibaldi 41_Brera District

During the Milan design week Editamateria presents a small collection/exhibition of precious objects which combine design, art and craftsmanship in a unique combination of research and handmade design excellence.

Editamateria continues its journey by presenting a collection of precious objects where creativity meets the land  and the designer ventures as an explorer into different know how as if in an enchanted forest.

Projects that travel trough unmarked paths, where the decision of where to go  comes with the going, with new ideas, with the research and the passion that woven with the artisans’ wisdom allow space for the incident, the imperfection, the intuition, and where  finally it is the hand that has its final say.

Art, crafts and design mingle together offering different perspectives surprising us by the manual skills, by the technical excellence in the use and processing of materials, resulting in that mystery and magic that only unique works are able to deliver.


EDITAMATERIA's collection is NOW AVAILABLE on Haute Living Chicago

from February 2016





from December 2015


Editamateria now available at Mudec Design Store

MUDEC, Museo delle culture, Milano
from october 2015

The MUDEC Design Store, on the ground floor with large outward looking windows, aims to be a reference point for trends in contemporary design. It draws inspiration from the permanent collections of the Museum of Cultures and in this regard has been conceived as a “Wunderkammer” collecting items that are new and spectacular and that appear to come from a fantastic repertoire.


L'eclaireur presents The Blowing Man Collection in Paris

L’Eclaireur Hérold et L’Eclaireur Boissy d’Anglas| Paris
from July 2015

This year, Anto­nio Aricò together with Edi­ta­ma­te­ria sur­prised the crowd of the Milan Design Week 2015 with their exhi­bi­tion, based on a research and an envy to put the arti­san as the first protagonist.

Editamateria’s 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, 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.

The Blow­ing Man, a col­lec­tion of 5 pieces in hand blown borosil­i­cate glass made in a lim­ited edi­tion, tells us a story through the poetic and oniric inter­pre­ta­tion of the art of glass blowing.



from 14th to 19th April 2015 – Via Palermo 8 | Brera District

Editamateria will present the new collection expressly designed for the Milan Design Week in which our research enlightens the know how of Italian artisans.

wabi sabi. italian slow design

Torino Design Week, L'Eglise Concept Store, Turin, October 2012
Galleria Paola Colombari, Milan Design Week, April 2013

More than an exhibition, WABI SABI is a project, a search.WABI SABI is a Japanese expression that is an aesthetic vision based on acceptance of the impermanence of things. Difficult to translate, describes the beauty and harmony of objects, natural or artificial, imperfect but who embody the ideal of perfection. Andrew Juniper claims that "if an object or expression can cause within ourselves a sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual ardor, then you can say that this object is wabi-sabi". Richard R. Powell summarizes by saying "(the wabi-sabi) nurtures all that is authentic accepting three simple truths: nothing lasts, nothing is done, nothing is perfect."WABI SABI. Italian Slow Design is an investigation in the field of contemporary design in the sense of 'handcrafted design'. WABI SABI to get away not only by the industrial techniques but also by a sort of seriality aesthetic in common with any good idea. WABI SABI intended, as a means to experience, to overstep the limits and explore new frontiers and as a return to tradition and as a rediscovery of the "craft" has always been a contemporary keeper of a manual skill and traditions that today we should preserve, re-evaluate and continue to do live.Twelve Italian designers will exhibit an 'object' designed and manufactured specifically for this exhibition, then dutifully done by hand, mixing the virtues of technology and craft, leaving 'see' the border where one helps the other, where the work of 'gives way to one's work.
