Bernhardt & Vella

Ellen Bernhardt, born in Germany and Paola Vella, born in Assisi, Italy, both move to Milan in 2001. They meet at a design studio in Milan and start their collaboration based on a common vision of design developed during their individual international working experiences. A vision where design is understood as an individual interface, which can tell in a simple and clear way the project and at the same time convey emotion and poetry.


Bernhardt & Vella have designed the Papillon wall light and Match console table for Arflex.
