The duo behind Artemani Studio are Marco Baldisser and Nicoletta Benella, an artisan husband and wife team from the Italian region of Veneto specializing in polished plaster surfaces and bespoke decorative finishes based in Auckland.

Deciding to combine their skills together they founded Artemani Studio in 2016, a project that enables them to indulge their shared passion for the centuries old Italian technique of polished plaster with contemporary and original attitudes to interior design and art.

By fusing their two (sometimes diametrical) points of view, along with a profound knowledge of this Italian Art, they began experimenting with the amazing medium of lime-based plaster products.

Testing combinations of colours and textures, re-creating timeless design with unexpected choices of materials and transitions, they have transformed what was previously an unaffected ancient tradition, into a contemporary aesthetic.
