Born in Milan in 1975, she received her Master in Industrial Design at Domus Academy in 2000. Her activity spans from accessories and fashion design to light and furniture design. She participated in several editions of Salone Satellite. She developed Bosco, a highly experimental series of chairs and rugs that use leaves and natural musk, for Dilmos Edizioni. Amongst her exhibitions: Saint Étienne International Design Biennial, Inside Amsterdam, Design Festival Seoul and Moss Gallery in New York.
She is a talented story-teller and she often refers to natural elements in her work: in 2010 she was selected amongst the 10 Best New Generation Designer by Ad Spain; in 2009 her “Le piantine” (Little Plants) were selected for the GLASS exhibition and the DesignHuis in Eindhoven, curated by Li Edelkoort; in 2008 she was invited to participate in various projects at “Memoriae Visionarea” exhibition curated by S. Caggiano, at Festival della creatività, Florence (2008); in 2008 her Helix bottle opener was selected for the exhibition D come Design (D is for Design) in Turin, at Museo Scienze naturali; in 2007 her Helix bottle opener was selected for the exhibition Invito a tavola (Lunch invitation) during ICFF in New York; in the same year her Souffle armchair was selected for Milano Made in Design in Beijing and Shanghai. Now she has her own studio and works for many different design brands.
“Domus Academy has been for me more than a school, it has been an intense life experience shared with people from all over the world. An engaging year of growth and learning that lasts in time which rarely happens.”
