“I‘ve always been passionate about cars, not exclusively vintage ones. I believe that out of something so vibrant like a piece of waste of a prestigious car, which is what made Italy so renowned and appreciated all over the world, something very elegant is bound to be generated.
This is how I started giving spare parts a second life, I aimed to keep that legend alive. I wanted to do that by giving them a new purpose in a way that you could keep hearing the engine roar at the same time“
New Made in Italy, out of old Made in Italy: adulterated, handcrafted, luxurious.
This is what Stefano Notargiacomo‘s creations are about. Roman designer who reinvents parts of vintage cars and motorbikes, mostly Italian vehicles, turning them into unique pieces suitable for the most sophisticated interiors all over the world.
An original carburettor from a sixties Vespa gives Notargiacomo inspiration for a lamp which sets itself up both as an art and design piece at the same time.

The handcrafts refer to the worlds of cars and to the industrial style of distinguished Italian brands.
In his refined design works, Notargiacomo combines elements of prestigious cars with high level of handmade manufacturing; the skilful hands of the best Roman artisans assemble each part with the most rigorous precision. When put together all the mechanical parts keep their original features, including signs of time, adding value to the final realisation. Commitment and dedication make a unique creation out of every piece.
