CARA \ DAVIDE, design studio based in Milan, is a collaboration between Cara Judd (South Africa) and Davide Gramatica (Italy). Their works are characterised by an ongoing research in material, territory and perception of geometries. They produce their own series of products working closely with artisans in Italy and South Africa. Their collections are represented by galleries in Europe and USA. In the same way, they work closely with brands to produce new collections and have recently been commissioned to design interiors such as retail spaces and exhibition scenographies. Cara and Davide both lecture in the Product Design Department at IED Milan.
