Arabeschi di Latte design studio was founded by Francesca Sarti in 2001 in Italy 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 Sarti and her team work with international clients and partners to deliver bespoke experiences, installation, spaces, workshops, visual journeys and social objects, always blurring the boundaries between design, architecture, art and food .
