– Our History –

The beginning…

Our story begins fragmented in the university departments of various Italian faculties. Each of us contended between research work and professional commitments, experiencing different passions, from design to urban sociology, from photography to philosophy, from information technology to management. Always asking us how to summarize all this. A bit ‘for fun, a bit’ for friendship, a bit ‘seriously believing.

2013: An opportunity given by Bergamo Sviluppo

Then, in 2013, the opportunity: the tender for the Business Incubator of the Chamber of Commerce of Bergamo was about to close and we decided to try to participate. Nights to measure ourselves with business plans and days, at work, to think about how to write it, what to put in it. In the end we were selected and we managed to enter. That day we took such a drunk that large parts of the night no one remembers them.

2014: We win “Culturability” contest of Fondazione Unipolis

In 2014 we won the “Culturability” competition announced by the Unipolis foundation. We presented the “ioop” project, a platform for imaging, facilitation and support for creative processes of social transformation. Some of the values ​​of current methodologies were developed during that period. In particular, the idea of ​​focusing particularly on the future and on the willingness to work for social development through Design.

2017: first phase “irotee”, consulting, research and analysis

In 2017, after three years of training in the incubator programs and school, we finally gave the form to the ideas. A global design team for the analysis of emerging phenomena and the design of objects that can interpret them. A team with a variable structure, composed of coordinators who build and manage with project management tools the different circumstances posed by each different project developed together with the customers. The initial phase aimed mainly at research and consulting, and than slowly, we moved to be ready to face new and global challenges.

2019: irotee global design team

And now, in 2019  we have opened our office at POINT -Polo per l’Innovazione Tecnologica-, the Technological Innovation Hub in Dalmine, Bergamo, between the University and Tenaris factory. Crossroads of coworkers, researchers, start-ups, new innovative projects.

Ready to welcome you with a coffee. Or a beer if you delay…:)
