BASAGLIA + ROTA NODARI /
The pair of architects and designers Alberto Basaglia and Natalia Rota Nodari made their professional debut in 1997. With the first design project, the “Antennati” collection for the company YDF, in 1999 they won first prize in the Young & Design competition, happily materialising their strong ability to understand the potential of the company with which they work, interpreting its traits in the product. Many collaborations are still ongoing, and even more projects have been developed. From environmental reclamation and renovation of industrial archaeology buildings, to the creation of display areas and environments. Winners of the 2007 Good Design Award for the system of modular bookcases called Boox and made by Rexite, Alberto Basaglia and Natalia Rota Nodari have successfully worked in many other areas of architecture and furnishings. Firmly convinced that the best design comes from working in strict contact with the client, knowing the company that has to actually make the product, Alberto Basaglia and Natalia Rota Nodari have often started working with companies for individual pieces, to then arriving at handling its entire image. In 2016 the S’mesh family chair, designed for Diemmebi, has been selected by ADI Design Index for the “Compasso d’Oro” 2018 award.
