The objects designed by Studiocharlie have a strong graphic aspect, they are images in space. One can draw on a sheet of paper using lines and colors. In the same way, one can draw on a sheet of steel using laser rays and folds, or on material using threads and weaving patterns. These are drawings using matter, lines that define volumes. Fidelity to the original idea is necessary to restore the same emotion in the actual object. They are images that materialize so as to be shared. We also work in visual communication and type design (Superbastone and Csuni, which received a special commendation for the 20th edition of the Compasso d’Oro ADI). We design for: Billiani 1911 , Boffi, Donati Group, Lanificio Leo, Lema, Mipa, Made a Mano, Vittorio Bonacina

The idea must be a "conceptual detail" in the design.
