TIPSTUDIO is Imma Matera + Tommaso Lucarini, a Florentine based duo driven by a material research with a more poetic process to investigate and explore new universes. 

They are determined to transform any idea into a narrative project to catch emotions. 
They believe that through in-depth research of processes and territories they can create simple and unique objects. The form is just the shape of the process. It becomes the output of a path of experimentation on material and immaterial values trying to interpret the design of today.

Their works come from the blending of anthropological aspects, conceptual analysis and territories in a continuous intertwining between the poetry of Matera with the materiality of Pietrasanta.

Both graduated in design at La Sapienza in Rome and ISIA Firenze respectively, they met in 2017 after their studies. A shared vision, their complementary and a good complicity bring them together. Currently TIPSTUDIO works across different disciplines, companies and artisans to create new products, unique pieces and concepts in a continuous journey.
