In the group of designers, we couldn’t leave out the man who was a great companion in travelling and in his love for wood, Carlo Cumini. We asked him for an object that was small, perhaps to fit in a pocket, that was pleasing to hold, caress, own and love.
As he usually does, Carlo didn’t respond with a drawing, but with a prototype that was ideal in form and function although still very embryonic and lacking a proper mechanism for opening and closing. We added the newly invented mechanism with magnetic elements and the game was set.
We started with an ergonomic model for study and, over the course of various evolutions, what was initially an egg became a drop and then a seed and can contain other items rather than pills that you can go to buy at one of the oldest pharmacies in Venice and more precise at number 4598 in San Marco
