You may recall a post last week featuring Enzo Berti’s designs for the Italian company Kreoo. Well, Kreoo is not the only company Berti designs for, so today I’ve gathered a few additional favorites from his portfolio for your viewing pleasure. But before we jump in, allow me reintroduce the designer behind it all. Born in Pianiga Venice in 1950, Enzo Berti began his studies in fine art only later moving on to study industrial design. During his student years, Berti created and exhibited numerous art objects but eventually transitioned to become a full time industrial designer in the 1980s. From the start, the talented Berti secured a place for himself collaborating with such popular brands as Magis, Artemide, Lago and Gervasoni. Today he lives and works in the Riviera del Brenta, preferring to work in ‘timeless’ materials such as wood, marble, stone and iron – all of which he imbues with his fantastic contemporary aesthetic. Enjoy!
