Salvaged materials, vintage design and religious flair for Servomuto handmade lampshades

The story of Servomutoallsaints6

Settings: Lecce, nowadays

Main characters: graphic designer Alessandro Poli and architect Francesca de Giorgi

Plot:  The duo takes inspiration from vintage forms and a privately-owned archive that dates back more than 50 years. By combining the old style design of lampshades with unusual trimmings and salvaged materials such as army blankets, theater curtains, vintage wallpapers and linen Servomuto comes up with amazing reinventions of the past.
All pieces are unique and proudly hand-made in Italy. Servomuto also collaborates with innovative artists commissioning provocative images that are then screen-printed onto fabric.
