We believe creativity is a serious skill, design is a culture, and space is one of the most powerful means of communication we have.
Turin, since 2007
lamatilde was founded in 2017 by merging yetmatilde and /LAM, after years of joint projects brought the partners to converge on shared values and work methods.
. We tackle each project according to its specifics, so we can find the solution that fits best.
. That’s one of the reasons why we always experiment, with innovation touching on technical, formal, production or language aspects.
. Beautiful is never enough: what we do must reflect design culture and contribute to a precise communication and market placement strategy.
. More and more often, we are hired as general contractor: a single interface that takes the project from concept to completion, ensuring quality is upheld, costs are in check, and every phase of the job is carried out coherently.
