Rota lab

Rota-lab is a laboratory of applied arts based in Rome that is dedicated to the creation of original works. For example, pictured above is Animalhouse, a revised 1950s cupboard.

Working with wood, metals and resins and tapping into a Italy’s rich and varied tradition of craftsmanship, Rota-lab produces a limited series of furniture, lamps and interior furnishings, adapted to the functional needs and aesthetics of contemporary living. Many unique pieces arose from Rota-lab’s passion for the recovery of found and/or abandoned objects, and their ability to give these objects a new life and a new function.
