The Milan based design consultancy "Skrivo" specialises in industrial design across furniture and lighting sectors working with manufacturers across Europe. The projects always try to be conscious of the available manufacturing methods while taking into special consideration material research in order to create products that attain a balance between function and aesthetics. Skrivo was founded by the Croatian/Irish product designer Stefan Krivokapic. After studying Industrial Design, he collaborated with a number of design and architectural consultancies working on projects ranging from packaging to furniture, lighting, products, consumer electronics and exhibition stands. Stefan’s multicultural background has always guided him to take bits and pieces of different cultural habits, history, values, materials, and processes in order to create interesting and innovative products. At the heart of every project is the idea of starting from a material, function or technology in order to arrive at stimulating and timeless solutions. Since its foundation in 2012, the consultancy has had the opportunity to design furniture, lighting, and product ranges for a number of international brands such as Sancal Diseño, La Cividina, Softline A/S, Miniforms, Opinion Ciatti, Contempo Italia & Potocco. Skrivo’s projects have been published in some of the most prestigious art and design publications worldwide and have received a number of prestigious awards including Best Furniture Designer by Elle Decor Croatia, 1st place at the New Office Designer Awards, the Gold Award at the Samsung Young Design Awards, & most recently finalist at the 2013 & 2014 editions of the Young & Design Awards.
