History and the brand


The designers of the Numen group came together in 1999 in a manner almost anachronistic – in the positive sense of the word. The homogenisation of these friends and fellow designers did not take place for pragmatic or opportunistic reasons – just as it did not derive from the very clear conception according to which their work was to develop, rather it was primarily the consequence of a desire to create a framework for dialogue and the exchange of ideas concerning design liberated from the restrictions of the banality of a transition society and the sterility of naive radicalism.
