What does ‘Made in Italy’ mean to you?

Who/what has inspired most of your work and style?

The Elicyon studio is a very diverse and creative mix of designers and architects from all over the world, a lot of our inspiration comes from within the studio, we often share inspirational material we’ve spotted on our travels and these influences are often woven into our projects which makes each one entirely unique. We carefully consider the sourcing of materials used in our projects and the process in which these are created, the team often visit supplier’s studios to see this first hand and we are always on the lookout for innovative techniques that can inspire our next project.

Describe your design approach and philosophy?

We don’t have a house style that we simply stamp across our projects, our aesthetic is all about our clients and it is tailored to their personal needs and interests. While creativity is at the heart of our work, everything we do is driven by a thorough process and methodology, we carefully consider all aspects of a project from the internal structure of a property to the very personal lifestyle characteristics of the client. We pride ourselves on the unsurpassable service that we offer and the strong collaborative relationships that we build with our clients.

Craft is synonymous with luxury, it is an integral part of innovation in design and producing exquisite work with longevity that is a highly personal investment for both homes and individuals.

What is the one decor you cannot imagine your clients living without?

Throughout our projects, the team spends a lot of time curating interesting artwork and antiques that are explorative and reflect the personality of the properties and clients that we are designing for. The pieces we source are entirely unique to the homes we create, each tells a story and brings the scheme to life.

The story behind a piece and the meticulous process through which it has been created is something that our clients really enjoy and we love to explore this through all of our projects.
