In 1992, Giuseppe Verdacchi began designing and producing furniture and furnishing accessories in Bali. His creations are based on the goal of achieving a balance of volumes and also on defining the message an object should communicate within its context. Beppe, as the architect-designer is otherwise known, deliberately refrains from adhering to any one architectural school of thought. He goes about designing and producing his pieces in an extremely methodical way. Hence, the interaction between surfaces, the definition of their lines of contact, the way the different parts are conjoined, and the weights of the respective materials, are all extremely important considerations to him.
