About


Gloria Gianatti +
Alessandro Mattia

The design philosophy of Sapiens Design is based on the belief that, despite being relatively easy to mass-produce, each product is created and used in an entirely unique way. It brings people closer both through its simple functionality and design, but also through its intent to stimulate creativity and imagination in everyday-life situations.

The object is indeed designed to encourage interaction with its owner, allowing for the discovery of new possibilities and situations for its use.  Each product has, in a sense, a unique “soul”, and it was starting from this premise that Sapiens Design imagines and creates a future that is both functional and human: an evolving future.

Sapiens Design was born from the cooperation of Alessandro Mattia and Gloria Gianatti, two designers graduates from the Polytechnic of Milan from the sectors of Product and Interior Design respectively.
