Designer: Tobia Scarpa
The work of Tobia Scarpa includes realisations in the field of architecture, restoration and design.

He received many awards: in 1969 the “Compasso d’Oro”, in 1992 the “IF Industrie Forum Design Hannover” and in 2008 the “Compasso d’oro” to the career. Some of the objects he has designed are exhibited in the most important museums of the world like Louvre in Paris and Moma in NY. Since 2002 Scarpa has taught in the Design Department of the IUAV University. In October 2004 the IIC in Chicago hosted a one-person exhibition of his work in the fields of architecture and design and in 2005 in Los Angeles.
Since 1970 the history of manufacturing silver objects has been renewed by San Lorenzo. The company integrates the traditional skills of the silversmith with technology borrowed from applications outside its world and introduces an unusual way of looking at silver: that of the architects-designers who are asked to create silver objects, giving preference to the nature of the material but recalling formal conventions.
