Interiors and objects made in Italy with natural and vegan origin materials, conceived by architectural and product designer Coki Barbieri and created by the local craftsmen with the aim to expand a new slow living awareness and surround oneself with a few objects, capable of staying alongside us over time.
"Free your soul and surround yourself with a few wonderful objects": with this inspiration, Coki Barbieri works as architectural and product designer specialized in sustainability, who traces
a path with the COKI brand characterized by constant contact with Italian nature. The first hills on the Adriatic sea are her background: it is always the right time to sharpen the tip of the
pencils, cut the cardboard and test the tenacity of raw materials. The open-air laboratory is full of perfumes and the large work tables tell the story of the alchemy that arises between the
materials, the prototypes, and the relationship of trust with her Italian artisans.
A SUMMER EXPERIENCE
"Coki Barbieri established her eponymous studio-workshop in Rimini in 2017, bringing to life a sustainable way of conceiving the product design for home. Nature inspires her environmentally conscious creations, which are imbued with emotional energy while maintaining their aesthetic impact and practical functionality. Coki collaborates with talented Italian craftsmen to produce one-of-a-kind homeware objects capable of unlocking new synergies between concepts, materials, and use".
(ARTEMEST, July 2019)
Everything that is imagined by a designer mind is not good or bad until it is related to its user.
The deep meaning of the term sustainability is in the object-user relationship.
Nothing is less sustainable than objects or spaces that are not used, or that are used only for a momentary tendency, even if they were created with materials defined as natural or ecological.
The unusable spaces will be abandoned, increasing the sense of dissatisfaction.
Objects that are difficult to understand and use will throw away, they will not know repair,
they will increase the mountain of waste and, definitively, they will not be useless.
The task of today's designers is to overcome chaos, open new dialogues, propose solutions not to feed that mountain of lost opportunities and be proactive: design for feelings.
