Hey there !
After graduating an Industrial Design BA from ECAL︎︎︎, Lausanne University of Art and Design, (CH) in 2018, with my project Update Ltd, I spent a 2 year period working as a product design intern for Ableton︎︎︎ in Berlin (DE) and as a footwear design intern for On Running︎︎︎ in Zürich (CH).
In 2020, I decided to enrol in the newborn MA Geo-Design at DAE, Design Academy Eindhoven︎︎︎, (NL) lead by design duo Formafantasma︎︎︎ (IT). I graduated my Masters in 2022 with a second footwear project called NeoVernacular Footwear. I have since relocated in Milan (IT) working as a full time footwear & product designer at Roa Hiking︎︎︎.
I am essentially commited to social and environmental components related to my design practice. Ethically speaking, the mere sake of technical innovation is not a justification to overlook of Human and non-Human beings. Contrarywise, I am often inspired in slower, more ancient and traditional forms of creation when it comes to solving a design brief.
Research through making is a core part of my practice. I very often experiment with random materials and uncommon tools to broaden my range of possibilities, and eventually consolidate my hands-on knowledge.
