About me

 

My name is Francesca and I am a 27-years-old designer based in London, currently working on my start-up, Flatwig, a design project experimenting with different types of manufacturing practices. I am a junior designer with an interest in objects, interior styling, decoration, graphics and set design, trained in Communication and Product Design (BA, University of Genoa) and Interior Design (MA, Milan Polytechnic). My expertise is that of an early career designer interested in interior and set design, exhibition and graphic. I’m interested in home decor crafts and fashion and I’ve always believed that well designed spaces could make life better. Across these years I’ve developed my personal aesthetics that I try to put in my work.
