Made by hand.
Made with soul.
Made to last.
For Mario & Casa Founder Mario Gagliardi, design is the language to connect people with objects, values and narratives. Having studied under legendary designers Alessandro Mendini and Richard Sapper, he is on a mission to bring contemporary design and artisanal culture together.
After having researched artisanal cultures of India and South-East Asia for over 10 years, Mario launched Mario & Casa as a catalyst and laboratory to inspire traditional crafts with contemporary design and vice versa. We intend to create opportunities where designers can learn more about the possibilities of traditional crafts and local artisans can collaborate with designers to create innovative products.
Our furniture and interior objects reflect on the fundamental question of quality. We think that true quality is expressed in products made with creativity, ingenuity and skill, made primarily with natural materials, and made to last.
We create contemporary objects on the fundament of centuries of craft tradition.
Design and artisanship are at the heart of our commitment to create innovative, aesthetic, long-lasting and responsible objects for living.
