Cosma Frascina


Cosma was born in 1989 in the city of Grottaglie, South Italy.

Graduated in Design at ISIA in Florence he feels the urge to slow down his life pace focusing on his own ideas. Goes back home, fixes an old space where to set and work, wins his fear to make mistakes and builds his self knowledge on constant trying. The lack of tools while working resulted in a pleasant rediscovery of traditional artisanal techniques and natural materials

He finds his main inspiration in the roughness of nature, particularly in contrast with humans artifacts. Cosma likes not to determinate too much before start creating, to be as free as possible in the making.

His design is concretized through the voice of hands, which is inherently imperfect. As a medium to find the pureness of this life he goes by upending traditional notions of beauty and comfort/functionality.
