the granite collection

what: Mirrors
material: Granite
produced: Clique-editions

The idea arises from the desire not to waste the excess material obtained during the processing of granite: this is how Hole and Puzzle are born, mirrors with a contemporary aesthetic in their clear geometries. There is a strong link between the lightness of reflective surfaces (mirrors), and the durability of granite.

The responsibility of imagination: a design philosphy based on continuous experimentation and research, thinking of all the human beings from all over the world, combining architecture and design. Design studio in which different cultures and experiences materialize in forms


Born in Milan, he graduated in architecture at the Politecnico di Milano. He moved to Barcelona and Madrid, working and collaborating with several spanish architectural firms. Back in Italy he founds Modoloco Design Workshop, an experimental project built as open space for work and research, combining different visions and methodologies in design and architecture perspective. Creativity is the word that can define his approach toward base of all the things that it does, it is a constant necessity, which pushes him to imagine and create new projects every day; since 2010 also in the field of social utility, where architecture and design can be put at the service of the communities also on an international scale. He has edited and participated in various exhibitions in Italy, Japan, Spain, France, England and Sweden. In 2017, 2018 and 2019 he is “Ambasciatore del Design italiano” for Swisse, Albany and Uruguay.
