Studio Minale-Maeda (founded in 2006 by Kuniko Maeda and Mario Minale) works between usable products and artistic statements as they see design founded in utilitarian needs but also an expression of culture. They are interested in the effects of consumerism and the improvement of life quality, the possibilities between mass production and the cultivated skill of the craftsman. They see the contemporary challenge of the information society to embrace the immaterial and find realism in the artificial.
