Giacomo Moor founded GM Studio back in 2011. The aim of the  studio practice was to develop his design process and creative structure within a complex studio-workshop in which designers, architects and craftsmen share their work-space and even their specific skills. This collaborative relationship has allowed Giacomo to work  in research-oriented design and craft production. Currently the firm GM, which has customers both in Italy and abroad, designs and manufactures furniture, custom kitchens, apartments; offices, as well as unique pieces and limited editions such as tables, desks, chairs, lamps, and accessories. They also work with design firms including Ilide, Memphis and Environment Furniture.

The Palafitte collection is inspired by the pure verticality of stilt house structures and the elegance of Flamingos. The fascination with raw wood, his prime working material, has led Giacomo’s research into new scenarios that combine artificial and natural worlds.

"My aim is not to impose my personal style to products, but to start each project from zero, trying to understand the deepest demands of my client in order to propose them the best solutions. So I invite them to be involved in every phase of the production process and to undertake a common and synergistic journey, where my role is almost maieutic"  - Giacomo Moor
