Studiopepe is a design agency founded in Milan, in 2006, by Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto. Studiopepe’s focus is on design and research through the use of a multidisciplinary approach: this includes interior design (retail, hotels, private commissions), product design and creative consulting. The language they use for their designs is stratified and eclectic, uniting poetic vision and rigorous design. Art, installations, study of formal archetypes, experiments with materials and the dialogue between opposites are some of the themes developed by the Studio. Studiopepe’s projects are recognizable by their strong iconographic identity, based upon experimenting, continuous research on colours and materials and the contamination between the various contemporary languages with the intent to provide a solution that is uniquely special and respectful of each client’s individuality.
ARIANNA LELLI MAMI
Arianna has graduated at Politecnico di Milano in Interior Design. She has always been fascinated by the ways people live and inhabit space, she looks at design from a viewpoint that is free from rigid schemes. Passionate about art, she collects objets trouvés that are then re-explored and utilized to create installations that often inspire projects for the agency. Recently, she has been working on a personal project that unites rediscovered photography with collage.
CHIARA DI PINTO
Following an accademic training in fine arts, Chiara received her degree in Industrial Design at Politecnico di Milano. In 1996 she started collaborating as an interior stylist and journalist for many Italian and international magazines. Due to her artistic path, she has always had a strong interest in materials, shapes, and colours; her approach to design and her love of research is istinctive and endless.
