Message by Designer & C.E.O. Mitzi Bollani
A smile or a spoken word switches on the spark for a new creation. My work tries to achieve for each product the highest level of ergonomics, safety, ease of use and cleaning, in the right balance with the emotion, so that my intially experienced sensation will be imprinted in my design remaining alive over time, so it might be felt by other people, giving them a positive feeling of well-being.
I am an architect and sculptor, when I create an object these two worlds always merge together. Both professions have improved my intuitiveness and my ability to listen and talk through tactile and visual emotions. I love looking for innovative, useful and appealing objects to improve people’s individual and social living environment.
My creations have rounded, enveloping and reassuring shapes: those sinuous curves attract and invite people to use them. I love working on my Curvy Design. Which is my motto? “Stir up emotions!” and that of my company Leura s.r.l. is: “Helpful Design”.

Friendly Design at the Maternity Ward
Immediately after birth, mother and baby benefit from their particular hormonal situation, which encourages their mutual recognition and their falling in love. The baby is catapulted into a new world and his mother’s proximity guarantees his better adaptation to life. For this reason, the latest hospital practices require that immediately after delivery, the infant is kept in the mother’s room and stays with her all the day. That practice, called rooming-in, prevents postpartum depression (Puerperal Blues) and helps the maternal milk production.
