Two friends, two passions, two cultures: this is 2grams. Nicola Di Costanzo and Telli Nourkeyhani met while studying graphic design and realised they not only shared skills in design, but they were both good at making food and having fun. Nicola was brought up amongst the masterful skills of his family's pastry business in Italy; while Telli's Iranian upbringing developed her love of feeding others and seeing the buzz that good food creates. The name 2grams represents the tiny, yet vital details that bring together the perfect result - integral to both baking and graphic design. Their events offer a tasteful treat for the senses, turning a sweet fix into an multisensory experience. Together, 2grams brings people together to have fun, feed the soul, and bake some noise.
