Patrick Norguet

Patrick Norguet is an essential figure on the international design scene.
After completing his design studies at the ESDI, Patrick Norguet was commissioned to design the display windows of two major players in the luxury industry: Yves Saint-Laurent and Louis Vuitton. From these experiences, he gained an un- derstanding of brand identity and the way of showcasing it. Designing Renault ‘s event stands helped him to hone and apply his synthesis skills to ephemeral architectures.
In 2000, his Rainbow Chair, noticed and produced by Giulio Cappellini, gave him visibility that quickly spread thanks to the international media. He then opened his studio in Paris. His early furniture collections for Bernhardt, Artifort, Offect, Capdell or the French companies Alki and Tolix validated and established his presence at international shows. In 2010, designing one McDonald’s restaurant in France gradually led to a collaboration with McDonald’s Global. Patrick Norguet has become an emblematic figure of French design.
Alias, Arflex, Artemide, Cassina, Emu, Ethimo, Glass Italia, Kristalia, Lea Ceramica, Pedrali, de Padova, and Tacchini quickly recognized his talent and authority and fully involved him in the production process and strives to create long-lasting collections. Drawing inspiration from everything that surrounds him, Patrick Norguet does not follow trends but seeks to give shape to products whose relevance and modernity would withstand the test of time: “A well-designed object, an object created through generous collaboration is time- less.”


Giuseppe Maurizio Scutellà

Giuseppe Maurizio Scutellà was born in Alcamo, Sicily. His collaboration with RAK Ceramics begins with RAK-Cloud (2018), a project that continues the creative thinking of the Italian designer and that integrates perfectly with his other projects such as the collection of lamps “Pirce” by Artemide (Good_Design 2008, Red Dot Award 2009, IF Design Award 2010) and the “Metropolis” collection of crystal and ceramic tables by Tonelli Design. RAK-Petit is the second concept developed together with RAK Ceramics (2019).

"I like to talk with the soul of all my projects, discover its history and capturing the most hidden hues of its character, respecting its nature and embracing its languages. It is my way of approaching its magical essence and becoming its interpreter.".


Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri

Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri founded their own design studio in 2010 and work within various fields of design, ranging from objects to spaces. Multiple experiments and the relationship between manufacture and craftsmanship form the basis for a much broader thinking, where objects are always considered as part of a bigger picture. They have created work for Antoniolupi, Lema, Ligne Roset, Normann Copenhagen, Offecct, Rosenthal, Stelton, Villeroy & Boch among others. Many of their projects have received international design awards and are featured in publications worldwide. In addition to their work as designers, they regularly teach, hold workshops and lectures at various institutions including IUAV Venezia and Politecnico di Milano. Together with RAK Ceramics, Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri present the project RAK-Variant (2019).
