Staffan and Filippo head the product design division of Tollgard Design Group
Born and raised in Stockholm, with an early career in film-making, Staffan’s passion for story-telling has manifested itself through his interior design projects as well as in his product design ventures. His design ethos is crystallised in two principles: the search for the Scandinavian notion of the distinctive ‘Red Thread’ or creative DNA in each project, and the commitment to the creation of functional sculpture.
Filippo Castellani was born in Pisa, educated in Florence and trained in Milan. Creative consultant and product designer for leading international design brands, his experience has seen him work from high-end and limited production items, to mass-produced and globally retailed products. Informal – balanced – unconventional – figured – detailed… these are the keys to his concept of design.
