“My work aims to investigate the relationship between complexity and simplicity, in search of that magic that only the delicate game of balances between these two elements can recreate. All my products are the result of a strict design method, developed along the years. This method grants to all my works a certain design quality and a recognizable identity.” David Dolcini, Design Ambassador for Finland for the second Italian Design Day, 2018
