Eligo is a Milan-based brand that specializes in artisanally produced objects that blend traditional craftsmanship with a contemporary aesthetic sensibility.
Originally founded under the Segno Italiano in 2011, Eligo was born from the passion of friends and colleagues Domenico Rocca (born in Sassuolo, Modena in 1981), Alberto Nespoli (born in Milan in 1981), Paolo Tarulli (born in Pordenone in 1980), and Leo Prusicki (born in Milan in 1979). These young entrepreneurs collaborate with a network of skilled Italian craftspeople to develop striking collections of ceramics, cookware, furniture, and more. Many of the designs produced by Eligo are inspired by historically important Italian craft typologies.
Projects to date include, among others, Empoli Green Glassware, which was inspired by centuries-old Tuscan glassmaking traditions; the Chiavari Chair, a modern recreation of the lightweight, classic fisherman chair; the Ramaioli Tridentini Collection, a celebration of copper cookware and accessories dating back to the mid-1900s; and the Trionfi di Frutta Centerpieces, made from 19th-century Venetian molds.
Eligo also organizes exhibitions, creates documentary videos, and acts as a commercial agent for artisans on the global market. The company art directs tailor-made collections for its customers and serves as an interior design agency for private homes and shops.
