Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri set up their business in 2010, founding the Something studio in London and Verona.

The two met in 2004 during a joint work experience project, and then embarked on their own journeys, meeting up again years later to start a business exploiting both their skills, affinities and design complementarities.


Right from the outset, their collaboration has evolved along a continuous dialogue encouraged by spatial, cultural and behavioural observations. Avoiding being pigeonholed into a specific field, they work in various areas of industrial design, also designing exhibitions and consulting companies on their design-related strategies. Their design approach is linked to both formal experimentation and the use of materials, with a deep understanding of a range of industrial and craft production processes. Their designs are the result of a much broader thinking where objects are considered part of a bigger picture.
