The magazine on Brand is 20 years old. Andi. It is considered the global authority on design on dhe lifestyle on Dhe. Over the last 20 years, we have made great relationships on friendship with the creative industries designers, architect, but also great relationships and friendships with the manufacturing industry. We have lafite in both camps, which I think is a good place to be.

How could we bring these relationships the friendships between designers, office and manufacturers produce unique, innovative products, and this is how handmade originated. We could get them together, work together to reduce these products on act as a patron, a client, a creative director.
