INSPIRATION OF KEIGIO| May312021
The founder of KEIGIO Modular Design is a passionate and free-spirited soul. He has an eye for details and is an avid traveler. He has travelled to many parts of the world, drawing inspirations from everywhere and is currently residing in one of the most beautiful cities, Barcelona.
KEIGIO Modular design is one of his passion projects and the idea came from his most beloved country, Japan. Which is all about details and it is where he found his love for Art and Design in one of the most culturally and architecturally rooted islands of Japan, Naoshima.
One of the most known architects in Naoshima is Tadao Ando, who’s sensibility to design was a great inspiration for Giovanni. It was inspiring yet rooted to the ground, just like the Japanese people. In spite of the fast paced and futuristic city that Tokyo already is, people always stop by the temples next to the skyscrapers. This was a beautiful moment of realization of the roots of the Japanese culture and faith. Giovanni also realized how nature was seamlessly integrated throughout Japan and is even more beautiful during Hanami. Japanese fashion is as good as their tasteful food. Japan is an example where culture is strongly preserved yet the country is ahead of it’s time. They are living in the future.
Giovanni shares his love for not only Japanese food but also the Mediterranean cuisine of Morocco.
During his Travel to Morocco, he was absolutely delighted with the Moroccan Tagine and Couscous. Morocco to him is all about colours and landscape. He enjoyed the desserts and Atlas Mountains more than the cities. The cities seem to be a bit chaotic but not more than the cities of Berlin.
Giovanni’s visit to Berlin brought him deeper sense of understanding of the faster pace of the city and a taste of Future. He was inspired by the trends, styles and mood of the city. To him, city started changing between the neighborhoods and the nightlife was more interesting and delightful. There is no sense of time in Berlin as people live in the in-betweens. All these travel stories and keen observations talks a lot about who Giovanni is as a person and how all these details are reflected in the brand in terms of simplicity and chaos, flexibility and colours, advanced yet rooted.
This is what Keigio Modular Design is.
WELCOME TO THE FUTURE!
