We are a collective of artists and designers directed by Piergiorgio Robino,
based in Turin, Italy, active in contemporary art, design, and architectural fields.

Our statement
With our work, we investigate time-frames, their matrix, and their existences.
Through visual and tactile sensations, we draw comparisons between past and future
to create an influence of the perception about self and surroundings.
We play with the presumption of interlacing time-frames and exploring
the space they create, focusing on three-dimensional shapes. 
The physical and tactile experience is an essential part of the expression.
We have always been interested in working with history, the lack, and its creation,
aspects necessary to build a memory. We want to create curiosity of history
that has not yet happened by making the past of the future.
