a new regenerative approach to natural materials

 

COKI is an Italian-based home decor brand founded in 2017 by architectural and product designer Coki Barbieri (she/her), winner of the Green Design Award. Aesthetic and functionality are combined with the desire to narrate the natural materials' characteristics and sustainable production cycles, also combining raw elements in an unprecedented way. The local artisans bring life to a precious objects collection, expanding a new slow-living awareness and a new regenerative approach to resources and traditional manufacturing.

The climate emergency and increased future anxiety push our work to imagine alternative ways of living, producing, and consuming. Coki Barbieri uses notions of geology, chemistry, and design culture to create new products (and materials) from fragments and waste from natural products (such as stones and minerals). COKI brand harness as possible the power of natural elements such as sun, water, and air to craft. Under this vision, nature dictates new production and consumption rhythms: the materials are created as much as possible by hand, with "cold" procedures. The sun-dried components compensate as much as possible for the CO2 emissions due to the production of borosilicate glass (a high-quality material chosen for its extreme hygiene, possibility of cleaning, durability, and non-toxicity). The possibility to divide each product into its original components allows us always to offer the repair of the single element, the replacement, or a second life to the material (reuse or recycling).

Join our path for a sustainable future

 

"Reduce your footprint on this planet, free your soul and surround yourself with a few wonderful objects", with this philosophy, Coki Barbieri outlines a new approach to sustainable home goods through her award-winning eponymous label COKI. The first hills on the Adriatic sea are her background: it is always the right time to sharpen the pencils, cut the cardboard and test the tenacity of raw materials. The open-air laboratory is full of perfumes, and the extensive work tables tell the story of the harmony between materials, prototypes, and the relationship of trust with the artisans.

"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".
