Sisters Paola and Francesca had spent several decades living separately in exotic destinations around the world, an experience that enriched and widened their appreciation of what is beautiful. Together they decided to launch a project, DISTINTO – creating a space where aesthetics of different cultures can come together in harmony and be applied in to world of interior design.
DISTINTO was born from the search for unique and special elements that can give a particular warmth to a home, with furniture that is not only functional but also rich in character and meaning.
Likewise, they seek to reject the notion use-and-dispose and engage in the practice of breathing new life into pre-used objects, while adding a uniqueness and increased beauty. DISTINTO is also committed to becoming a space where the creative energies of artists, craftsmen and designers come together to shape personalised projects for their clients.
They aim to make DISTINTO a lively and dynamic place, where art and function converge, and where the likes of exhibitions, talks and workshops also complement the creative concept of the project.
