A company as a digital and physical place that produces only positive or reversible reactions between
human needs and the protection of natural heritage, "as if not even an earthworm was killed to dig the foundations of a house". A brand that operates in symbiosis
with the environment and its ecosystems, instead of merely extracting from it. Deep ecology and multi-species thinking will shape design and business visions, transforming products and services
Intrigue with simple and functional shapes to bring the user to consider natural untreated materials precious
and place safety and non-dangerousness of their life cycle in the first place.
Sensitivity, honesty, kindness and freedom.
Our mission is to produce visually innovative and quality objects on a small scale, which respect the Italian craftsmanship and the natural materials of our country.
This is why we have chosen to work with small artisan firms specialized in the processing of the characteristic materials of their area.
COKI. studio was born in a green area on the hills of Rimini, well protected by dense vegetation. Within the park and the undergrowth there are various animal species completely free,
who have chosen our undergrowth as their home, including squirrels and woodpeckers. These are our great friends: cats, chickens (which live in freedom and will not become our food), and, until recently a peacock, Francesco, who left us after many years together. For heating the home and the workplace, united in a single building, we use condensing boiler, and for cooling we rely on the winds that often blow on our hill and on the thick perimeter walls, we do not have air conditioners.
We have decided, considering the low number of car trips we make, not to change our small-displacement work car produced in our country with an electric car. It is much more expensive in economic and environmentaly term to create
from the new and replace, than to keep what you already have, in our case.
We are a small company and our ability to revolutionize the world of marketing in design is low, we have to say that, but for our part, we do everything to exhibit our products and make ourselves known in a digital way. We know very well the great environmental impact that each trade fair participation has, so we try to minimize them and we are active in this field with other like-minded organizations like us.
Most of the food we eat, following a vegeterian diet, is produced by us. We only buy: water (from the source closest to our home-place of work), flour, seeds, pasta, bananas, cheeses from local shepherds (we have a pasture in front of our house). Fortunately the undergrowth offers us many truths of mushrooms every year, we are waiting for a gradual reproduction to increase their consumption. We have been growing avocados for three years and expect to see the first fruits next year.
Our animals live free, therefore they can eat the food they manage to catch in the wild, according to what would be their best source of nutrition. The hens are fed with seeds and scraps of vegetables and fruits that we cook. The cats, assuming that after 25 years of experience they are forbidden to approach the kibble, feed on organic wet food from Italy and from a small German family business. Cats have the freedom to eat raw meat and fish a few times a week, even if we don't eat any.
For at least 11 years we have chosen ICEA certified organic products from Italian companies for the care of our person and to clean the home and work environments.
In addition we can tell you that there are 3 crazy substances for cleaning the house, beauty routine and stay safe from bacteria: tap water, bicarbonate and denatured alcohol.
You don't always need to spray more, this drastically reduces your shopping and the danger of intoxicating yourself with useless and harmful substances.
For example, we would like to use solar panels and geothermal energy, but at the moment we cannot.
If COKI will have the opportunity to grow, these will be some of the first steps.
