Dino Raccanello

Dino Raccanello. A career in Interior Architecture and an Italian heritage has given Dino an insight into how people respond to beauty, whether it be an object, a space, a view, a place or an image. It uplifts the human spirit and brings out the best in us. Simplicity is the purest form of beauty. Reducing design to it’s most essential, the perfect balance of form and function. When this is combined with the finest materials and workmanship, design becomes timeless. As Creative Director of Vero Dino Raccanello’s vision is to create beautiful objects that combine the knowledge and ‘know how’ of centuries of Italian artisans with designs that are relevant to contemporary life and realized using fine materials from the greatest master designer of all – Nature.
