    Launching the brand is the classic game of billiards, an emblem of leisure originating from the palaces of the bourgeois, which has since become a popular sport across the generations. The first challenge of Calma e Gesso has been in recreating a product with such a long history but so little evolution.

  • B <D> Collection

    American architect and entrepreneur Gregg Brodarick is the director of B<D> Collection, the company behind Calma e Gesso, managing its production and distribution. He has worked and studied in Italy for two decades, and is editor of a series of Made in Italy brands. Elegant and unique, “Calma e Gesso” embodies the perfect duet of italian style and technological innovation. This collection springs from his passion for what happens when italian designers, artists, and craftsmen unite their creative forces. This synergy sparks design elements that are daring, distinct, and destined to become classics.
  • Calma-E-Gesso

    The brand’s philosophy is embodied in its name - Calma e Gesso - the Italian expression that, having originated in the world of billiards, has become a part of everyday language. It encapsulates that moment of reflection - ‘calma’ - that the player takes before a difficult shot, carefully considering his next move while rotating chalk - ‘gesso’ - on the tip of his cue stick. It is, at the same time, both a direction and a motto, inviting the individual to take the time to evaluate their position and find the best solution, to avoid making a hasty decision. Everything that goes into that moment of calm before we have to make an important decision is part of what has helped create Calma e Gesso.

Adriano Design bring this desire to break and ‘re-invent’ the rules to the design of Calma e Gesso.
