Architect Luca De Bona and designer Dario De Meo met somewhere between Milan and the Veneto region, embarking on a collaboration that drew inspiration from their journey to create designs that responded to contemporary living needs. In 2013, they founded DEBONADEMEO in Padua and began to collaborate with a variety of prestigious furniture, lighting and décor companies, handling interior design, art direction, concept design and product development. Their collaboration is both fairly specific and wide-reaching, re-interpreting and merging various fields – such as architecture, design, graphics and art – in order to create innovative environments and objects that tell stories and evoke certain emotions in end users. Their projects, which blend romantic expression with a more industrial feel, have appeared in numerous national and international magazines. In addition to their design work, they both teach at various institutions and universities in the field.
