Mario Marsicano never grew up.
A former advertising executive and decades-long vintage toy collector, he found himself with literally hundreds of prized possessions from his youth. Running out of room, he started making display cases for his favorites; using them as truly unique (and very personal) pieces of furniture. Soon anyone who saw the pieces was asking about custom replicas... and the concept of combining childhood memories with unique home furnishings was born.
Jellio Design is Mario’s way of bringing this idea to people across the world.

Eric is the founder of SFDS and Design with Reason based in Brooklyn NY.
He met Mario 12 years ago and they have been working and collaborating together on the larger Jellio projects over the years. They finally decided that it made sense to actually partner up, which would give Jellio the upper hand with a large fabrication shop to backup all of it's creative genius.
Jellio is Eric's excuse to have fun with design and fabrication, in the sense we are designing things based on growing up and just reminders of the really fun times of our youth and childhood... (Hell, it is just my excuse to have fun!)
