Krill Design is an Italian design studio specialising in the development of new design products within a 100% circular and sustainable process.

 

THE STORY

 

Krill design was created in 2018 by three people who share a passion for innovation, sustainability, and design: Ivan Calimani, Martina Lamperti, and Yack di Maio.

 

“We are a multidisciplinary team the combination of different personalities and professional skills stimulates our work to satisfy the desire for experimentation.”

The consideration of the three founders is quite simple: there are already several supply chains that intercept and recover waste from the production of paper, glass, and plastic, while for the organic by-products of the food chain, there are no virtuous solutions.

The three founders converted this problem into an opportunity, experimenting with creating innovative materials, which, combined with the 3D printing method, gave life to a successful and environmentally friendly production process.

Krill Design has been awarded Best Performer for circular economy services and recognized by the World Economic Forum as an example of sustainability.

 

THE COLLECTIONS

 

Napoli

The Coffee Collection

Napoli collection is inspired by the Italian city known for its coffee culture as an essential element of the morning routine.

The collection consists of an incense holder and a pocket emptier.  Both products are made with Rekrill Coffee, an exclusive 100% organic and compostable biomaterial made from recycled coffee grounds. Entirely 3D printed and made in Italy, Napoli brings sculptural shapes and refined texture into a unique, high-quality design. Each product has a delicate roasted smell that reminds you of the warmth of the coffee ritual.
