Arabeschi di Latte is a design studio founded by Francesca Sarti in Italy in 2001 and since 2013 is based in London. The studio was born from experimentation with design concepts, reflecting on the cultural value of conviviality and shared memories and traditions.

Throughout history food and drink has been an integral part of our cultural consciousness, important in the founding and maintaining of new communities and societies. Arabeschi di Latte investigates through a creative and critical filter these cultural practices, looking at contemporary rituals, the spaces they inhabit and the complexity of human interactions.

Carrying out interdisciplinary research, mixing design and art practices, Sarti and her team work with international clients and partners to deliver installations, performances, bespoke experiences, set, spaces, workshops, visual narrative and social objects, blurring the boundaries between design, architecture, art and food culture .

The studio's work has been commissioned by a variety of institutions and companies including the Serpentine Gallery, Victoria and Albert Museum, London Design Museum, Nouveau Musee de Monaco, MAXXI, MACRO, Fiorucci Art Trust, The Vinyl Factory, T Magazine, RCS, Molteni, Boffi, Tom Dixon, Caesarstone, Karimoku, AESOP, Burberry, Fendi, Margiela, Marni, Toogood, Zegna, Villa Eugenie, Selfridges, Pitti Immagine, Altaroma, Wallpaper*, San Pellegrino and Gruppo Illy.

Objects and installations designed by Arabeschi di Latte have been included in several international exhibitions including Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival curated by Paola Antonelli at La Triennale Milano, In the Age of Post-Drought and The Serial Eater at CID au Grand Hornu in Belgium.
