I trained as a furniture maker in a boutique workshop in Trentino – Italy, nearby the small village where I was born and grew up surrounded by the imposing Dolomites.
After few years I studied and graduated as an architect in Venice and lately worked actively collaborating with world renowned architects on successful and award-winning projects.
Returning to embrace my first passion in making furniture, I continuously use the knowledge and experience gathered as an architect throughout all the design processes with attention to details in dialogue with a tactile and sensory realm.
The place where I grew up is highly relevant and over the time became very formative for my career.
Since my childhood wood and its materiality have always been part of my life, first as a material to play with, later as a material to work with.
Moving from large urban projects to interior design gave me the ability to craft and develop designs and details across different scales, achieving prestigious recognitions such the Medal of Excellence and the first prize at the Salone del Mobile in Milan for a competition run by Riva1920.
Recently I co-founded WorkshopEast. I am Member of both the British and Italian Boards of Architects.
