Adorno is a digital gallery for the best of collectible design and craft from around the globe. Selected by a network of on-the-ground curators in major design cities, Adorno’s collections provide a unique insight into the world’s diverse creative communities – and celebrate the work of the designers shaping them.
Each collection showcases only unique or limited-edition contemporary works, spanning the fields of furniture, textiles, ceramics, sculpture and design-art. The curatorial approach varies from collection to collection – just as design culture varies from community to community – but every object featured is contemporary in style, experimental in approach, and exceptional in material quality.
The designers featured include both established names and emerging talents at the cusp of their careers, ensuring each collection is a snapshot of the people, techniques, styles and thinking that define the modern making culture of each region. With each collection launch, Adorno adds a new chapter to the global design story.
In its essence the infrastructure of Adorno includes the e-commerce platform (www.adorno.design), an international legal set up, and a global cost efficient shipping solution that enables autonomous collaboration between curators and designers to promote their work, and transact with a growing segment of international buyers. Besides the running the online platform, Adorno exhibits at major design events worldwide.
