Intrigued by beauty with content, especially when irony is part of the equation, we are interested in and affected by the sky, geometry, evolution, revolution, chili, space, philosophy, food, light, plants, sex, humor, history and leon.
What we are doing and presenting to the world comes from our varying interests in the study of space, form, taste, texture, light and alcohol.
We want to be actively involved in contributing good things to society and we believe in sustainability….of the soul!

Australia The twenty-first WA Forum by the Design Institute of Australia (DIA) was held on Sunday 26 May at the University Club of Western Australia. The forum focus on how different design disciplines influence a city’s social and community representation, its citizens sense of self, and how a city’s design affects its perception to those outside it.
The conference was held on Tuesday 19 March at the Magellan Sutera. The objectives of the conference were to promote the passion for design and architecture among PAM fraternity and other building industry professionals and the public.

THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Word of Mouth’s space is in constant movement, morphing from one perception into another”
“A modernist wonderland of pop-up books, Chairman Mao money banks, furniture and striking limited-edition fashion.”
VOGUE AUSTRALIA/VOGUE UK
“Color, humour and total fusion between exteriors and interiors are the main ingredients of this house in Bali, Indonesia, where a big part of the furnishings are the creation of the designer couple that inhabits it.”
“Valentina Audrito, the founder and creator of Bali based Word of Mouth is what you would call a hell raiser, she rose from the ground, like a phoenix, flying up high and achieving great level or architecture and designing breakthroughs.”
“The use of recycled material is emblematic of Audrito’s concern for the environment.”
“Such surprises were few and far between in the main halls of the salone, but originality reigned at its Satellite annex for young designers. Although many pieces relied on computer –generated modular designs or looked like uncomfortable origami, there were charming exceptions. Pianeta Sud Est (now Word Of Mouth) created I Like Grass, a carpeting system made of green –painted rattan pieces placed in an aluminum frame, all cushioned by recycled sponge.”
