TÊTE DE BOIS design brand was launched in 2013 by Andrea Deppieri, venetian architect and designer, curious observer of everything around him. By his passions – fashion, architecture and design – the brand TÊTE DE BOIS took life, firstly with a line dedicated to fashion accessories, wooden hats, later expanded to the home TÊTE DE BOIS BASKET & CENTREPIECE COLLECTIONS. Basket and centrepieces made from the reuse and reinterpretation of materials like rubber, wood and iron. Totally handcrafted in Italy.
A short description of your collection.
TÊTE DE BOIS starts with a design collection of wooden hats but then evolves in tableware accessories made of eva rubber. Both collection with a same fil rouge creating connections and links. TÊTE DE BOIS is an idea that becomes project and then evolves into a Brand. It is an expression of creativity and craftmanship. It’s a sort of alter ego of the designer, reflecting his mood, style and way of being.
What inspires you?
Everything surrounding me, that I observe, absorb and get mine. Travels, music, and any kind of art.
Your style in three words.
Eclectic, alternative, polite.
Detail makes a difference... What’s yours?
The contrast between the exclusive positioning and the fresh, young, simple and ironic mood. A contrast that reflects my style: elegant and polite, but with a “rough” appearance. The result? The perfect balance: genuine and authentic.
Which object do you wish to design?
Being primarily an architect, I would love to project the house of my dreams. Everywhere, but absolutely in front to the the sea, or better to the ocean.
If your brand was a song?
“Gli uccelli” by the Italian singer Battiato, to mark the origin of my brand and products. Totally Made in Italy.
