Product Q+A: KAPP by Studio Italia Design

Sept. 9, 2009

NAME
Kapp

BIRTHPLACE
Venice, Italy

GENETIC MAKEUP
Each of my arms is constructed of hand-crafted, blown glass (it takes up to two artists to create just one of them).

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
I was designed, produced, assembled and packed directly in Venice, which ensures that I was created with the highest levels of quality and attention to detail. I was put into a casting furnace in my liquid-plastic state and was then extruded, poured, rolled, stamped, blown and spun into a wide range of shapes.

WHAT MAKES YOU SPECIAL?
I am unlike anyone else. My parents created me as a result of their innovative thinking and with a deep understanding of glassmaking, metal crafting and lighting.

WHAT’S YOUR BEST FEATURE?
That would have to be my curvaceous frame and stunning Italian craftsmanship.

FIRST JOB
I was a focal point at Casa Decor Miami—the internationally-renowned interior design show house.

WHERE DO YOU FEEL MOST AT HOME?
I feel most at home in a dramatic, architectural lobby or as the tour de force of a high-end retail setting.

WHAT’S YOUR MOTTO?
Clearly beautiful.

DREAMS
To inspire everyone to dream with the lights on.
