In 1944, Wilton Carlyle Dinges founded the Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) in Hanover Pennsylvania utilizing the skills of local craftsman. During WWII the U.S government gave him a big assignment, make chairs that could withstand water, salt air and sailors. Make chairs lightweight and make them strong, build them for a lifetime. Aluminum was the obvious choice, engineered for practical purposes, designed by real people.
Materia Design is for Rosalba Galati and Laura Santi the result of a shared passion for materials and their pliability. An esplorative energy guides both hands and mind towards the creation of jewelry new in shape and perceptually diverse in conception.
Unlike traditional jewelry, its preciousness is obtained through playful creativity and free use of forms.
