The Berlin studio Makuko creates practical pieces of furniture with high design standards: clear lines, minimalist aesthetics – and all in timeless black. The studio was founded by the Brazilian Diogo Pinelli, who initially worked as a fashion and advertising photographer in his hometown of Sao Paulo. Not only the designs are created in his Berlin studio, suppliers are also based in Berlin and the surrounding area in order to pay a great deal of attention to the topic of sustainability.
