Multi-function container

Design: Isao Hosoe with Lorenzo De Bartolomeis

Production: Belli e Forti, Italy, 2006


Tartarugo is part of a family of objects that could be called “seeking lost space”.

It’s a multi-function container for any type of use, designed to satisfy any need. Tartarugo answers the  need of  “general storage”, which gives the user the possibility to use it as they like it better, storing it as preferred.

From this point of view, Tartarugo is a “mimetic” object: invisible as it gets the colour of the place it is stored in, or visible, just when it’s desired to.
