"Timo", an interior and lighting design collection inspired by the colors and scents of Puglia, native land of the designer, Michelangelo Olivieri. Elegant and sober nuances, applied to a pure and handcrafted design. Stools, chairs, armchairs, chaise lounges and a lamp with a clean, elegant and functional style. Minimal shapes and care for every single detail blend together in a creative mix that puts in contrast the bright and dark, the cold and the hot, the light and the strong. Essential materials like solid wood and enameled metal, are joined in a collection that symbolizes the everyone’s roots that evolve and mature adapting to daily life, in a versatile and contemporary design.

“This collection has been in my head for a very long time, since I was based in Venice. Every time I used to come in Puglia, I felt the physical need to refuge on the Murgia Hills to breathe a single atmosphere, unique in the world. I simply transferred on paper everything that my eyes caught, along with the sensations that these zen wastelands make me feel: simplicity and inner balance, two key elements that we find in the “Timo” collection. Each piece is in fact in a constant balance: from the lamp with a springy structure that always returns to its original position, to the chairs: two legs on which is placed a metal plate, put on a precise point that allows the maximum flexibility and prevents the collapse of the material" says Michelangelo Olivieri.

The collection is perfectly suitable for indoor and outdoor environments. For outdoor in fact, "Timo" presents teak wood finishing and a galvanizing treatment for the metal, in order to have an excellent resistance to external agents. "Timo" is a substantial and vigorous project, which in its simplicity, brings into everyday life, the light that always shines in Puglia.
