Handcrafted in sustainable, composite materials made from industrial and consumer scraps, the –ISH Collection by UK-based designers Matteo Fogale and Laetitia De Allegri transforms waste into elegant, sleek designs for the home.
The minimalist –ISH Tray 2 finds a new life for two recycled materials: the blue-hued Denimite—made from discarded denim—and the milky Marblus—made from postindustrial cotton/polyester scraps. Super strong. Super cool.
Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Matteo Fogale moved to Italy in 2001 and went on to study Industrial Design. After working on several projects—from high-end furniture design and industrial product design to bespoke commissions—with acclaimed design studios across Europe, he established London-based design studio brose~fogale in collaboration with Joscha Brose. Their approach focuses on honest, premium materials, functionality, and longevity, imbuing everyday objects with a strong, iconic character.
Swiss-born Laetitia de Allegri graduated from ECAL in 2004 and moved to London, where she's been working with key London-based designers on projects ranging from industrial products and furniture design to interiors both in private and public commissions. She specializes in pattern, color, and texture, with a strong emphasis on graphics, particularly in the category of textiles and rugs. In 2013, she started a new collaboration with Eva Feldkamp under the name of de Allegri/Feldkamp. Their projects align feminine sensibility with technical knowledge across the disciplines of graphics, textiles, product design, and interiors.
