Archirivolto was founded in 1983 by Claudio Dondoli and Marco Pocci as an industrial planning, design and architecture studio. While studying Architecture in Florence, Claudio, Marco and some friends put up an experimental theatre group.
When they decided to focus their joint efforts on design, consolidating their ties of friendship, their interest in theatre strongly influenced the set-up of their new studio, drenched in creativity, sense of reality, respect and attention for the public. Keen on gaining an insight into the world oof production and the market, they started off managing an interior decoration shop.
For Archirivolto design is beauty, harmony and freedom and cannot therefore be bound by strict, pre-established rules, nor can it be the privilege of a social or cultural elite. The designer is committed to creating beauty for everyone and to make design approachable for an ever-increasing number of people.
