In spaces, in beauty, in concept, in designs--indeed, in everything, there is always something absent and just beyond our reach. This elusive element is what inspired husband-and-wife design team Cosimo Terzani and Barbara Bertocci to dub their Italian atelier Il Pezzo Mancante: "The Missing Piece."
With their luxurious handcrafted furniture and lighting designs, the pair sought to fill these absences in the world--absences that may not even be perceived until Il Pezzo Mancante's designs reveal how they could be filled. What makes this designer brand's philosophy doubly-resonant is that, precisely by providing the missing piece in a larger puzzle, they then reveal further voids where the space, the design style, or even the atelier can still grow and evolve.
With love--for quality, for design, for materials, and for one another--Barbara Bertocci and Cosimo Terzani continue to grow, evolve, and challenge themselves and their atelier's skilled craftspeople with every individually-handmade design.
