gebr.silvestri is a Amsterdam-based design studio. We – Adrian Silvestri-Chyle and Stefan Silvestri – work as art directors and designers in two and three dimensions. We produce visual solutions in media ranging from print to online to 3D. Our projects range from brand identities and books through products to exhibition and stage design.
Following our five-year training in two- and three-dimensional design at Schule für Gestaltung St. Gallen and at Globus in St. Gallen in our native Switzerland, we both studied graphic design at Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Our design studio gebr.silvestri has been in business since 1994.
We have been giving workshops in typography and the language of images at Merz Akademie in Stuttgart since 1996 and teaching at Design Academy Eindhoven since 2004. In the past we gave workshops at Ecole des Beaux Arts in Mulhouse (1998–1999) and we taught at St Joost Akademie in Breda (2002–2004).

2012In-store communications for a new line of storage containers
The iconic Dutch variety-store chain HEMA is internationally known for its attractive yet affordable household products. For its new line of storage product branded under the name ‘Organize’, HEMA asked us to design a logo, a system of signposting and a series of pictograms representing the various genres of storage items the line offers. Those include products for travelling, for example, but also for specific spaces such as garages, workplaces, bedrooms, kitchens, children’s rooms, bath rooms and laundry rooms.
