Each element is designed to achieve zero-waste, model typology and commitment reached at 360 degrees, with monofiber products that include also selvedges and avoiding accessories that are difficult to disassemble. Quality versus quantity, uniqueness instead of seriality, traceability and transparency instead of closure. Made in Italy is a value choice, it represents the means to be able to trace every step of production, collaborating with excellent suppliers and open to change. ZEROBARRACENTO does not judge but welcomes, does not exclude but includes, does not waste but values. The brand is based on the idea of creating pieces that last and that can be handed down by generations. A timeless aesthetic, a minimal design with artistic and architectural inspirations, constantly changing design pieces in which matter is central, animated by cuts, folds, draperies and soft and destructured shapes.
