Bernhardt & Vella
Ellen Bernhardt, born in Germany and Paola Vella, born in Assisi, Italy, both move to Milan in 2001. They meet at a design studio in Milan and start their collaboration based on affinity and a common vision of design, developed during their individual international working experiences. Design is understood as an individual interface, which can tell in a simple and clear way the project and at the same time convey emotion and poetry. Since 2008 they collaborate with important furniture companies, developing products and acting as artistic directors.
