Gargano Emanuel

Italian designer Emanuel Gargano was born in Assisi, Umbria. The region profoundly shaped his creative and emotional sensibilities, and he continues to live and work there despite the fact that various experiences bring him to different parts of the globe. After graduating from the ISIA of Urbino, he moved to London and collaborated with architect Claudio Silvestrin, where he successfully grasped his calling to blend the concepts of “void” and “nothingness” regarding space, interpreted as his expression and perspective towards design. Currently his professional life is carried out between his firm in London and his laboratory in Assisi, where he studies and develops his artisanal approach and material research. It would be impossible to confine his multifaceted activities to a single professional field, as his work ranges from architecture to industrial design, contemporary art, and the study of light. His works reveal a deep fascination with both natural and synthetic materials, and he forges all kinds of physical matter in search of its innermost soul, a process that is likely parallel to what life itself continues to do with him day by day.
