Description

During the First Lockdown in the Netherlands, we were obliged to stay home for about 8 weeks. The situation was surreal, all over Europe museums, cinemas, libraries, galleries, shops and all social activities were frozen. Going out was not allowed, or in a way very limited. Our ‘’normal life’’ had to stop and our routine had to drastically change. Time lost its sense and the perception of it changed drastically.
Days sometimes were extremely long and some other times flew by in a jiffy.
After the first week, I needed to find myself a practice, something which would help me to stay focused for a few hours a day and that aided in isolating myself a bit from the bombarding pieces of information which were coming from newspapers and social media.
Wood Carving was the easiest and simpler craft to apply. I basically only needed a bunch of tools, some leftover wood and a closed place where to work. So for two months, my shed became my atelier, and my daily practice was to produce furniture for my own house.
This practice really helped me physically and mentally during the lockdown, It was a way to keep up with my work, stay focused and fill the emptiness of a lockdown.

About Tellurico Design Studio Visit Showroom →

After graduating with the Master of Contextual Design at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, in 2017 Francesco Pace founded Tellurico, a multidisciplinary design studio specialised in objects, spaces and installations design. The investigation of alternative solutions through the study of folklore, together with the relationship between crafts and the environment has been the centre of Tellurico’s practice. The context in which a project is born has been the primary focus of these years' research. What binds the objects of a place to the characteristic of the place itself intertwines the historical, geological and social aspects of humankind, as well as the uniqueness and simplicity of everyday life. It is an always expanding field of investigation, as endless are the ways to live. In 2020 Tellurico has been nominated by Platform Magazine among the Best Italian Designers. In 2021 Tellurico won the prestigious Officine Saffi Awards with his project Telluride So far, Tellurico’s works have been presented in many international venues such as the Biennale of Architecture in Venice, Van AbbeMuseum in Eindhoven, M.A.D.RE. in Naples, Triennale di Milano, Brohan Museum in Berlin, Beirut Design Fair, Italian Pavilion in Barcelona, Zoya Gallery in Bratislava and others. He works closely with private clients and received commissions from different galleries such as Palau de Casavells in Barcelona, Mint London, Camp Design Gallery and Functional Art Gallery in Madrid. Tellurico lives and works in the Netherlands.
