Ginevra Taccola

Material’s explorer, Ginevra graduated cum laude at Naba in Milan. Her great passion for materials and self-production brought her in 2016 to work in Eindhoven for Nacho Carbonell. She just opened her studio, where she works ranging from art to design. 

In her creative process she never tries to follow a precise method but tends to be transported by the sensations and intuitions that a material or project gives her. She believes in the value of craftsmanship and in the idea of creating unique pieces by questioning our way of acting, challenging the properties of natural resources. Her research moves through curiosity towards transformation and time that stimulate her to create objects that take space, in an organic way, in our ever-evolving society.

Today we live in a consumer world and we continue to design objects without thinking of tomorrow, moving away from our primitive side more and more. As a designer I try to find harmony finding inspiration by nature. Thus began the Alchimia project.Alchimia in the past
described an ancient science whose aim was the transmutability of poor materials in precious substances. This is how OrangeBi is born, a material that utilizes industrial processing waste like orange peels in organic, environmentally friendly and non-toxic organic matter. It has no disposal costs and is degradable in the soil ,where, thanks to
the enzymes contained in the orange peel, it becomes an excellent fertilizer.By studying OrangeBi I discovered its great versatility, that led me to create a collection of shapes, textures and colors.
