Roberto Palomba, along with Ludovica Plaomba, created Palomba Serafini Associati in 1994. As architects and designers, their distinctive hallmark has emerged from a capacity to combine a contemporary vision of society and user needs with an extensive knowledge of the historical and cultural roots of design, producing results that blend the past with the future. This unique and personal approach makes them particularly sensitive to issues of function and the need to create long-lasting products, removed from the uniformity of momentary trends.View other products by Roberto Palomba
