Hi, I'm Marco Rocco, originally from Grottaglie, a city in southern Italy, famous for ceramics for more than a millennium. I deal with design and production of home objects, in 2015 I was one of the 100 most influential designers of the year. In my family I am the seventh generation that perpetuates values and excellence in super current, but at the same time artisan products.
Normally my design process starts from a concept, an idea. Maybe I read a book or see a picture and my mind clicks, but I'm never in the mechanical search for ideas.
For my objects I like to use all materials, but I think that ceramic, being an ancient and natural material, makes objects more spiritual, almost with a personality.
