Edgar Vallora is an architect from Turin who has accomplished numerous achievements, among the most recent the boutique theatre of men’s tailoring called Caruso in Milan in via Gesù, but he is above all a gentleman from another time, elegant and polite, collector of scientific wonders, which are neatly kept in glass cases in his ateliers in Milan and Turin. Aesthete, curious of every discipline, he collects traces of different ages, which he reassembles, with great freedom, in his areas of work and thought, where he devotes himself to the development of locations, precious volumes and unusual objects. His creations are subtle provocations aimed at gourmets. His stage name, Flemish in inspiration, is Pieter von Balthasar and, using this pseudonym, he lives in his Wunderkammer, where he collects leaves, shells, minerals and primordial insects along with quirky items

Bulimic collector of all that is bizarre, Balthasar utilises these signs of the world, perhaps neglected or abandoned, to bring them back to life in the "room of wonders".

"Travelling, I fell in love with monstrous-wonderful insects that I combined with pearls, amber beads, gems, rhinestones and humanized with ornaments and engravings inspired by the 1600’s. In this way, the jewels have become alchemical "confesses Edgar Vallora.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
