There’s design, and then there’s Italian design. And entrepreneur Marco Credendino, a native to southern Italy, knows it. That’s why his latest venture, Artemest, brings some of the best and most coveted Italian statement pieces to a global audience.
Credendino founded Artemest—headquartered in Milan and New York—with business partner Ippolita Rostagno in 2015, him serving as CEO opposite her as creative director. Together, they’ve brought bespoke Italian pieces to the (digital) world stage. Artemest functions as an ecommerce luxury curator—think: Sotheby’s meets Saatchi Art and Net-a-Porter.
Artemest was founded in 2015 by Marco Credendino and Ippolita Rostagno with the aim of celebrating and sustaining Italian craftsmanship. It is a leading online marketplace for contemporary luxury design products and the largest network of Italian high-end artisans and small luxury brands. The platform provides a carefully curated collection in the quest to support highly skilled producers to adapt to the new digital economy, giving international visibility to some of the best products in the world. In order to successfully accomplish this objective, it has set up a full-service one-of-a-kind offer, of which artemest.com is the showcase.
