KIASMO Vincenzo D'Alba // Architect - Designer // Lecce
Kiasmo works in the fields of design, fashion, art and architecture. Each project contains the values of Italian culture, the Mediterranean tradition and a new contemporaneity. Unique collections and objects purely made in Italy.
Kiasmo was founded in 2011, in Ruffano (Lecce). Its link with the territory is very strong and is manifested in every one of their creations, from the technique to the symbols and decorations created.
The surrounding environment, Torrepaduli where they are based, is rich in stimuli, to be translated through a renewed key of interpretation, adapted to the present. For this reason, the historical and artistic heritage, both Italian and foreign, becomes a starting point for the creation of new works and artefacts.
Kiasmo, as its name suggests, is the intersection of different sectors and the exaltation of each of them; architecture, art, design and fashion are the protagonists of the ideas developed by the professional figures within the brand.
They bring to life products that can be classified as luxury made in Italy, highly recognizable objects of quality made with carefully selected materials and with a refined design.
The Art Section is entirely signed by Vincenzo D'Alba, architect, designer, illustrator and co-founder of Kiasmo. The stylistic choices are the result of a cultural contamination that combines classical and contemporary decorative and iconographic motifs. The influence of design emerges strongly, but especially of architecture, which is manifested in the presence of engravings in the material.
The works in this collection are the Metope, ceramic discs and sculptures in reinforced concrete.
Kiasmo maintains a active dialogue with the fashion industry, resulting in a synthesis of formal rigor and Italian sartorial tradition.
They make bags, t-shirts, wallets, socks, and other items that combine design with the processing of fine materials and are distinguished by designs exlcusively created by Vincenzo D'Alba.
