Hans Thyge Raunkjaer together with its fellow architects of his own studio Hans Thyge & Co., has designed since the first ever step of our company in 2001. We fell in love with Ono, his first ever design of a tap series, and we are still falling in love of his designs, throbbing core of the very essence of our company. From the transformation of archetypes in the design process – combined with strong technological innovation – springs a peculiar expression, that stalls between Italian inspiration and Scandinavian tradition.
