Sapiens Design, based in Milan, was born from the meeting between Alessandro Mattia and Gloria Gianatti, designers graduated at the Polytechnic of Milan. The design philosophy of Sapiens Design is based on the belief that, despite being made in series, each product lives in a unique way. Relating to the human being through its form-function, every object follows us in everyday life, stimulating curiosity and imagination. This interaction between subject and object allows us to discover and invent new possibilities and opportunities of use. Every object posses, in this sense, a soul. And it is starting from this soul that Sapiens Design imagines a humanized and functional future: an evolved future.

ABOUT

Pan is a coat rack entirely made of recovered steel. Its components are obtained from the design and optimization of waste materials, coming from the industrial processes of steel laser cutting. The two-dimensional sheet takes on a new three-dimensional aesthetic, a faceted volume with a sculptural value that dialogues with light and the environment. Each Pan is unique because its pattern depends on how the elements are randomly arranged in the slab during the laser cutting process.

ABOUT

Oplamp is a table lamp composed of a ceramic body and a solid wood base on which an led light source is placed. Thanks to its shape, obtained through the fusion of three cones, the Oplamp's body can be rotated to three alternative positions that creates different types of light: high table lamp and ambient light, low table lamp and ambient light, or two ambient lights. Oplamp is designed and made entirely by hand in Italy.
