When writing a feature on a Yad Cheri partner, we always ask what in their view, does a hand symbolize? Rosanna Contadini founder of Neò is no exception and her response was spontaneous « the hand symbolizes the work done by Neò ».
A little over 10 years ago Rosanna discovered Neoprene, a lightweight plastic fiber in a hardware store and intrigued by the texture, challenged herself into knitting the yarn which thus produced her first item, a handbag.
Neoprene, commonly used for gaskets or competitive swimming wetsuits, was to become her signature material. Waterproof and corrosion resistant yet velvety, smooth and soft to the touch, Rosanna transforms the yarn into an elegant and contemporary home and women’s accessories collection entirely made in Italy.
Sourcing the best Italian material, Neò produces high-end baskets, handbags, cushions, and jewelry which are knitted, crocheted, woven or plaited.
The Neoprene Queen explains that for her, the ultimate expression of creativity is the hand. Her production is handcrafted by a team of women based in Rome. « We have a group of women hand knitters and knotters who turn the yarn into decorative accessories. These women work from their homes. »

Danish designer Troels Flensted first appeared on the scene of design when he was selected to represent Danish design in 2016 at the prestigious trade fair Maison et Objet in Paris. He was named Talent of the Year and it was the start of a very promising career.
His signature collection POURED COLLECTION consists of trays, bowls & plates, is precisely the result of 2 years of experimentation and research. the product itself is a combination of mineral powder, water-based acrylics, and pigments mixed together producing a texture ready to be molded. the different patterns are determined by the quantity of pigment added to the mixture and by the way, the mixture is poured into the mold. the final pattern appears as the different ingredients are combined, which is the hardest part to master.
Troels’ professional journey moves at an impressive speed. He was awarded Talent of the year 2017 at Design Awards in Denmark and his work has been exhibited at some of the most respected design fairs across Europe.
His Poured Collection is available on http://www.yadcheri.com. He is a new designer to follow and YAD CHERI is following closely.
