Furnishing Inspiration
For as long as he can remember, Michael Mancini has been fascinated by working with wood, and in handmaking furniture in particular.

Early fascination became a passion, until Michael was designing and creating his own, original pieces, as well as responding to the ideas of others with his own, unique solutions to help reach - and surpass - the most demanding expectations.

Today, the early fascination is a profession, dedicated to supreme artisanship.

"I'll gladly collaborate with clients, as private individuals, architects, interior designers or corporate commissioners, in search of the most engaging answers. I love to intrigue and delight people by suggesting unexpected materials, shapes, textures and colours. Whether the journey requires modern technology or traditional handcrafting skills, I can help find the best possible way forward."

"Function is paramount ... but I believe that form, appearance and touch are all part of the function. Beauty and presence are integral to every piece, as they are to every life."
