Alberto creative process is based on traditional craftsmanship in relation with natural materials (wood, metal, marble, ceramic, fabric and glass). The starting point is having a direct interaction with skilled artisans to understand their passion, feelings and dreams. This is used to inform the creative approach in a unique manner. In this way, the product elaboration is never the result of a defined and straightforward path but, instead, it is an evolutionary development that combined human skills and material behaviour. The final result is a melting-pot of clean shapes and soft lines, with defined functions, to give to the user new emotional experiences with the objects that surround his daily life.
