SIPH • LAB
A company that operates in the communication sector through new technologies.
But before and even more than this, SIPH • LAB is a team of young avant-garde who try to imagine what and how the future will be, not to suffer it and try with courage and imagination to grasp all the opportunities to own it.
"How will the future of many services on the market today be?”
From that question began a challenge, characterized by study, research, development and testing, then still study, research and testing, to make more effective our new communication proposal, projected to the future, which looks at the willingness and ability of companies and companies, to be always competitive over time.
We dreamed of a bright but warm, deconstructed but functional, spacious but intimate space, organized but not too neat, a place to think, create, make mistakes, propose, produce, present.
We dreamed of an open identity project. Where people could take care of training, production and promotion of photography, cinema, theater, fashion, comics, web, communication, animation, writing, without getting bored and alienate.
We dreamed of a real company, with real employees, with real contracts, real responsibilities, real budgets.
An ethical company where human capital was always at the center of everything. A human-friendly company, where every distinction, of any kind, was considered simply obsolete.
We dreamed of a place to stay, where to breathe, where to grow, where to give and receive out of any rhetoric. We dreamed of Mohole.
The world is changing rapidly. Architecture and Design is changing. That’s why we like to do things slightly different at D/DOCK. We create and realise Interior Designs and concepts that go beyond the physical and aesthetics alone by constantly challenging dogmas. Sustainable solutions that are future- proof and build around human requirements.
We adopt a multidisciplinary working method in which design, project management and consultancy are the ingredients for tailor-made designs that make a difference. In work environments, healthcare, education, retail and hospitality. Solutions that fit today’s changing reality and the future of tomorrow. Actively participating in shaping the changing world and making it a better and more beautiful place by means of well-thought design and architecture. That’s what D/DOCK strives for. Every day again.
By actively anticipating to market developments and identifying and translating the future needs of potential clients, we are able to deliver custom-made designs that work. Sustainability, health and feasibility are key in that.
We adopt a multidisciplinary working method that enables us to be part of the transformation process many market segments are facing right now. This, together with the inspiring enthusiasm of our clients, motivates us to be a front-runner in our industry. Every day again.
We believe that the Earth is a fabulous place, where you can build, guaranteeing high quality standards and living in an environmentally sustainable way.
We believe that from an idea, can born a project that can be achieved in the best way, respecting the environment, safety and health of people, without ever being satisfied with anything less than excellence in every part of our work, from design to construction to finishes.
We believe in our work and in the requests that every day we receive from our customers, finding the best solution, innovative and exclusive, creating spaces and custom architectures for every need: civil, industrial and exhibition.
We know that there is the possibility and the impossibility in being able to realize an idea, but as long as we have the possibility to be able to imagine it, perhaps there will also be the possibility to be able to realize it.
For years, we study and design, the best architectural solutions and together with our partners, we guarantee the best "turnkey" service ever.
Everything matters to us: THE PROJECT, THE OPERATING PHASES, THE CONSTRUCTION, THE FINISHES, THE HANDLING, nothing is left to chance.
Our customers are followed in every phase of the work, whether it is a house, a store, an office or a company, having the security of being able to count on a single and only contact person, a single telephone number to guarantee immediate, exhaustive answers and concrete.
