about us

Sélva is a creative studio that works in a space where design, art and nature overlap and dialogue. Our project was born in London, grew up in the warmer Sicily and its roots stretch to Turin, where we live and work.

This is why we dive in nature, in the plant world and in what is wild, drawing inspiration for each of our services, ranging from interior design and plant styling for homes, offices, commercial establishments or events, to visual identities, graphic design, art installations and painting on walls or canvas.

We believe that welcoming plants and natural elements in our daily life, whether at home or at work, helps us to be more balanced, peaceful, productive and inspired. Simply, the quality of our life improves.

Our diversified background allows us to develop every job with a holistic and multidisciplinary approach, so that the result can thrive and flourish.

so, what do we do?
