Grow in the cracks
We live in a city. We are not used to nature, maybe for this reason we feel an intense affinity with the plants that grow in the cracks oh the streets. In a city where everything has already been built, and there’s no more room for anything else, those living beings manage to create a new space, a micro environment where nature shows it’s strength and tenacity.
Those herbs are not noble plants, sometimes they make a flower bloom, often are trampled and battered, but their beauty lies in the hold on, until the crack will widen.
Matteo Carrubba and Angela Tomasoni both have a Maser Degree at Politecnico di Milano and since 2003 are founders of Officemilano, an italian agency dedicated to Brand design and Art Direction.
They share their time between the agency work and the teaching activity at Istituto Marangoni.
During they’r career their work has been acknowledged with several publications on international books and magazines.
