Diemme Caffè is a coffee roasting company based in Padua, very active worldwide. Its qualities are expressed in the Academy, a completely new structure that condenses different souls: at the same time a showroom, a certified training school and a place for research on coffee. The goal was to create a space with many contents. The project is structured in work areas divided by some wooden totems and glass walls, with different degrees of introspection. The high level of technological systems has been deliberately hidden to make coffee the protagonist.


Gherardiarchitetti was founded in 2000 in Treviso and Castelfranco V.to (Italy) by Edoardo Gherardi. The office works in many fields of architecture: urban design, architectural design, interior design, industrial design and ship design. It has followed the setting-up of the major art exhibitions in the last decade in Italy. It is following many projects around the world, among them in Switzerland, Luxembourg, Far East and all over the world. The firm has received international awards and acknowledgments.

We encourage designers and architects to share their best projects with the rest of the world so as to inspire the next generation and gain global recognition.
