STUDIO MEMO, with the skills of designers Federico Visani and Federica Francini and all the rest of the core team that includes Maria Claudia De Felice, Murat Afsar and Marija Pejovio, is an open studio constantly seeking confrontation and collaboration between people of the most varied experiences and skills: it is able to meet any need needed in the course of normal design processes by also being able to count on a group of prototypists and technical consultants who are always able to solve the problems of verification and fine-tuning of projects, emphasizing what, an important characteristic, is the openness to constructive and sincere dialogue between the internal components and the many external collaborators.
