Francisco Gomez Paz
Francisco Gomez Paz was born in Salta, Argentina in 1975. After obtaining his Industrial Design degree in Argentina, he moved to Milan in 1998 where he attended the Master in Product Design at Domus Academy.
Since opening his design office in Milan in 2004 he has developed products for leading design companies such as Artemide, Driade, Danese, Lensvelt, Luceplan, Olivetti and Sector among others. Francisco’s approach to design is driven by his own curiosity, the knowledge of technology and materials and a highly experimental hands-on creative process. His work has on several occasions received international recognition including the Good Design Award 2010 and the Red Dot Award 2010.
Moreover he was honoured together with Alberto Meda with the First Prize of the Index Award for the Solar Bottle, which was also selected for the MOMA’s Study Collection, and received the Prize of Prizes to Innovation in Design from Italy’s president Giorgio Napolitano for the Hope chandelier and the prestigious Compasso d’Oro 2011. He is active in the fields of research and education and as a visiting professor at Domus Academy since 2000, he has held lectures in Italy and abroad.
His projects have been exhibited in several international events and published by major design publications. He currently works and lives in Milan.
