Giopato & Coombes


To Cristiana and Christopher design means finding the synthesis between the emotion behind conception and the pragmatism of innovation.
The study of the behaviour of light, of the shapes enhancing its beauty and the technology that allows its existence, is the foundation of every project they design. Every collection is characterized by a sophisticated grace, achieved with noble materials and paths of research contaminated and different every time.
In every product rationality, essential condition for the development of the project, meets intuition and emotion, in the research of a constant balance, looking for a Supernatural Daydream .

Cristiana Giopato graduated first from the Politecnico di Milano in Industrial Design, and then continued her studies with a degree in Architecture in Venice. After an internship in the office of Makio Hasuike, she began working with Patricia Urquiola, until the opening her studio with Christopher.
Christopher Coombes graduated in Industrial Design at Brunel University in London. After moving to Milan he worked for George Sowden and then to Sebastian Bergne, gaining invaluable experience in Industrial Design.

From 2006 Cristiana and Christopher start their collaboration with several design companies, and in 2014 they evolve Giopato&Coombes in a lighting brand, where their projects find a complete expression, starting from the sketch to the final production.
