Each piece is a fragment of a story, told in way that is magical and extraordinary - Silvia Furmanovich.
The work of the Collections designer Silvia Furmanovich is closely linked to her life story, memories from travels, ancestral techniques and contemporary inspirations mark the nonstop search for exclusiveness, new ideas and innovative materials succeeding in a work where a unique responsiveness reaches its peak.
