Founded in 2018 by Elisa Passino, our studio is focused on designing new products and surfaces combining beauty and sustainability. We transform our passion for colours and shapes into collections that are timeless and uniques, always with a really high standard of attention at nature and people. We carefully select our production partners to ensure the best in terms of quality and environmental impact. Our collections are a concentrate of history and tradition that always keeps an eye at the future; we believe in time lasting products that can make the difference, and in the perfect match of beauty and durability.
Elisa Passino - Venice 1990 - is an Italian designer currently based in Brussels.
She graduated with honor in Fashion&Textile Design at NABA Milan, with a course that gave particular attention to the Communication and the Creative Direction, which lead her to work experiences as a graphic designer with the Italian art director Paolo Bazzani and the fashion designer Antonio Marras. In 2013 she completed a specialization course in Textile&Surface Design at AFOL Milano, where she had the opportunity to work side by side with textile and colour experts of fashion and interior.
The course leads her to work at the product department of the Italian textile company Marzotto Group, after been selected for the international competition "Looking for Designers", that Marzotto actually uses to discover young designers around the world.
After this experience, she decides to follow her passion for Portugal and she moved to Lisbon where she worked as a fashion designer and interior designer, and where in 2018 she founded her own studio, developing "Geometrie Componibili", her first collection as an independent designer.
New Terracotta is a profoundly Portuguese handmade ceramic project. It is a modern line of Azulejos and glazed clay pieces produced manually by Portuguese craftsmen. The premise is simple: to merge the ancient technique with contemporary aesthetics, offering a new dimension of the tile.
