Frequently Asked Questions
What differentiates Sporto from other sports wear stores ?
Sporto is a selectively curated collection of international artists invited to create original pieces of sports wear, lighting and design objects. As we nurture and collaborate with working artists - the contexts and approach from which they design, are often refreshingly unique and differ from traditional industrial designers.

We create a natural bridge between art and design. By doing this we elevate the objects around us to the level of art. Being surrounded by the qualities of art naturally elevates life to the same experience.

The disciplines of art and design are undeniably connected. Nonetheless, the fact remains that they arise from two separate criterias and their forms are commonly distinct.
The goal of Sporto is to bring those two entities closer together and whenever possible to cross the line, to intermingle and cohabitate.
The fact that all of the 'designers' at Sporto are in fact working artists gives us an unparalleled opportunity to offer bespoke items and collections. Individuals or design partners can make special dimension, color or material requests for current items in the collection or can dictate a program of needs to any of our artists to create new items for their contract requirements.
Since the foundation of art differs from the constructs of design you can be assured of unique, substantial and synergistic creations. A universal goal of the selected artists is to bring multiple layers of meaning to their designs, that imbues their works with more challenging and interesting themes and forms, while serving their functions masterfully.
