Brand Keep Life
Born and raised in Campania, designers Ilaria Spagnuolo and Pietro Petrillo are the art-directors of Keep Life®. The brand was inspired by the Southern Italian tradition of eating dried fruit and nuts at the end of the meal: Petrillo noticed how the emptied shells formed an irregular yet harmonious tapestry on the table and, in 2017, Keep Life® was born. The founder, Petrillo, developed and patented KL, a sustainable, bio-inspired material made of shells that are dried, ground, and glued together without chemical solvents. Every KL piece embodies the principles of continuity and harmony between man and Nature, marked by a distinct texture and scent.
