We are dreamers, we are artists , we are technicians, we love beauty and we are passionate in design, we are arkimera

The mytological beast called “Chimera” was the crossbreed of three different animals. This gave her great power, strenght and the flying ability. For us to be a good designer you need to be the crossbreed of three different characters: a technician’s brain, craftman’s hands and artist’s heart. Our inspirations come from nature, art and traditional furnitures and places, we love blending them together in a minimal way trying to obtain something simple, iconic, elegant and poetic.

Arkimera studio was founded in 2009 by italian architect Davide Paolini and sammarinese architect Francesco Della Valle. The studio is based in Rimini, though Davide and Francesco are continuously moving accross Italy and Europe for development and research of new projects.
