Studiopepe is the brainchild of Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto, who both graduated in Design at the Faculty of Architecture of the Milan Polytechnic. Journalists and freelancer designers for major national and international interior magazines, in 2006 they founded Studiopepe, based in Milan, with the intention of operating in two areas: product design + interior design, and image design.
Studiopepe is a contributing designer for ELLE DECORATION UK and regularly plans photographic sets, from initial concept development to the shoot, for CASE DA ABITARE, D CASA LA REPUBBLICA, ELLE DECOR, THE NEW YORK TIMES STYLE MAGAZINE, and PORT. Studiopepe uses its experience in image design to create product lines that seek to rediscover the value of functional aesthetics, exploring the readymade, using innovative materials, and rediscovering archetypes that relate to the culture of the handmade. Studiopepe collaborated with Falper on the exhibit layout for Cersaie 2008 / 2009 and designed the Sabrina lights collection.
