Javier Deferrari and Lavinia Modesti meet in Milan, and eighteen months later, set up the DEFERRARI+MODESTI Studio in Florence. Lavinia is Italian. Javier is from Argentina.

They love design, moving ovn from one scale to another, from architecture to installations, graphics, design, pooling together their wealth of cultures, knowledge and skills.
