Dante – Goods and Bads was founded in 2012 by artist Aylin Langreuter and industrial designer Christophe de la Fontaine. They share a profound love of the material world for all its pathos and beauty. Dante – Goods and Bads creates objects, products, editions with qualities above and beyond the substantial; associative qualities: emotions, habits, memories, tastes, aversions, the good, the bad, never the ugly. Therefore, to each collection Dante invites a so-called guest to inspire, mentor and/or influence it. Each collection’s products, design and presentation then emerge from some form of dialog with that individual, institution or concept. His or her or its emotions, habits, memories.
