“We’re not rich enough to buy cheap things”

I had a special request from my colleague to write about how to differentiate between an original and a copy. Quite frankly, I always believed that showcasing the major flaws of a copy was a way of promoting them indirectly. As you know, our philosophy at Skedio is to promote only original design that align with our environmental values, that respect the intelligence property of the creators and respect all the stakeholders surrounding a brand. Obviously, this means that we worked with a lot of companies that are heavily copied, you most certainly crossed in your life a copy of a Louis Ghost of Kartell or the Navy chair of Emeco. Like we say, often copied never equaled…and some might say, it is a compliment to be imitated…

We fell in love with Pablo Designs !

Ugo and I want to offer you novelties as frequently as possible and with this objective in mind, we sat together and composed a list of potential brands that share the same values as us. Companies with products that respect the intellectual property of their creator, have a timeless design, have a quality that endures time and that supports the best practices when it comes to their employees and environmental issues. All of the above, with the goal of encouraging better consumption that we believe should be more ethical and lasting.
