I am Italian and after working for a few years in the fashion industry, I quit to pursue my first love – interior design. My interest in natural materials came from my specific involvement in organic apparel, and so I started to explore how we could integrate natural, earth-friendly and low toxic materials into everyday household objects and furnishings.
E-Side was soon founded in 2010; a direct response to what I perceived to be as an inherent lack of stylish, quality, sustainably designed products available on both the high street and online.
Intent on shaking up the general image of eco-design, commonly deemed as staid, utilitarian and hippy, E-Side aims to show how aesthetics and ethics can be combined to create irresistible, modern and yet durable pieces suitable for any contemporary home or commercial space.
I hope you like my selection of young designers which I've spotted around the world.
