The world of Maya design has warm tones, shapes without edges, flavor lived. The company of home accessories, based in Impruneta outside Florence and Chianti, is constantly moving between two poles: the technological innovation, the cultural traditions of Tuscany, which gives a strong impression to the territory, to those who lives and works there. Maya Design was founded in 2006 by Lorenzo and Simone Cintelli Soave. The company has since grown, coming to have its own line of furnishings and lighting. From lamps to tables, going from armchairs and perfumers, the objects tell echo of their homeland but were born with the needs of every day, reinterpreting the space in an original way.
Tuscany is not only the seat of Maya Design: the products are actually the result of learning Italian and Tuscan craftsmanship. This is also reflected in the details, which express a strong passion for the product made by hand, married to the knowledge of materials and their characteristics. The homeland of Maya is also expressed in the choice of many names given to the creations of the designers, who remember the past of Florence and Italy, with its artists and poets.
Behind this balance between tradition and desire to find new solutions to contemporary needs, there are the two designers Lorenzo Cintelli and Sofia D’Amico. Inspired by a love object did well, “with care”, are inspired by what surrounds them. Lorenzo, for example, thinking about the character of Pinocchio could not resist translating the shape of the nose of the puppet in a glass, wooden base and glass blown by artisans of Impruneta. Born as a lighting technician, does not hide his passion for the lamps, but does not hold back in front of new challenges, thanks to the love for drawing freehand, who accompanies him since childhood. Perhaps thanks to his father, a hairdresser by profession but a passion for painting.
