Angela da Silva Ph. Federico Ciamei

Founded in 2011 by Angela da Silva in a store-front in Benevento’s historic center, SWING Design Gallery began as a platform for promoting the work of talented, emerging contemporary designers from around the world. The gallery soon expanded, participating in international fairs and events (Miart, Operae, Milano Design Week) and producing its own, exclusively-made design objects. SWING explores the boundaries between craft and technology, with a focus on narrative and conceptual languages. With an eye toward experiencing new forms of contemporary aesthetic and investigating traditional methods of production, the gallery commissions and produces unique design pieces and limited collections. In 2018, the gallery relocated to its current home in Palazzo Collenea Isernia.
