My never-ending curiosity, my passion for the art of craftsmanship, my desire to share and communicate my experience and the hazardous encounters throughout my years abroad, have encouraged me to create my own company, Haz’Art Agency.
By meeting craftsmen, living in unique and diverse environments and travelling in diverse continents, I have had the opportunity to experience and discover true stories. While respecting the ancestral traditions and cultures as well as considering the new expectations of the modern Era, I found a new passion: discover and promote these national and international artisans who, through their creations, each share their passion and their know-how.
The flexibility and desire of these craftsmen to pass on the knowledge to the next generations combined with their conviction to protect our world by recycling and/or work with noble and sustainable raw materials captivated me.
With this we will be able to give our interiors a unique, high-quality, warm, comfortable and feel good environment which will enable us to transmit our true values to the next generations.
Have the courage to be who you want to be, in a world that is trying to make you look like everyone else.
