de Allegri & Fogale

Founded in London in 2014, design studio de Allegri and Fogale works across multiple disciplines on projects ranging from industrial products and bespoke commissions to interiors and installations. Cofounders and designers Laetitia de Allegri (born in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1981) and Matteo Fogale (born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1984) are inspired both by nature and everyday environments, and they champion combinations of craft and industrial processes. Driven by the values of longevity, functionality, and sustainability, their design approach embraces unconventional materials as well as a constant, careful consideration of pattern, colour, and texture. To date, the studio’s standout projects include -ISH (2014) winner of the Wallpaper Design Awards 2015 Best Denim, a collection of furniture and home accessories composed of recycled denim and postindustrial cotton and polyester remnants; as well as Mise-en-abyme (2015), a colorful, immersive installation on the bridge above the Medieval and Renaissance galleries at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London; and worked for clients such as COS, M.i.h Jeans, Wallpaper magazine, The London Design Festival, Airbnb, Manos del Uruguay, Oxo Tower Wharf/Coin Street Community Builders, Arts & Co and Bloomberg.
