IZ is a multidisciplinary design and creation studio / workshop. It was born of an impulse from artists and designer who, after having done a Master's at the Royal College of Arts in London, decided to combine their experience in creative as well as commercial conceptual projects. Their preparation enables them to involve themselves in all types of projects in which space, image, design, and communication represent a value to be strengthened, from the idea, via artistic and technical advice, to execution. IZ's area of work ranges from internal and ephemeral architecture to renovations, stage design, furniture, lighting, events, exhibitions, etc., to promoting a selection of proposals that emerge from contemporary design.
