About me
I’m an industrial designer from Italy, currently based in London. I have a positive and curious attitude, and I’m always eager to learn something new. During the past four years of work, I gained experience in both technical and management skills. I am able to manage a project in all of its activities: product ideation, product visualization, technical development, and customer relationship.
Projects
  • Kalikon
    KalikonDeveloped at Giulio Iacchetti studio for Maison 203. 3D printed jewels collection, including two models of earrings, a bracelet, two colliers, and a ring. All the pieces are flexible, thanks to the small joints linking one "pearl" to the other, which are free to rotate and move in each side.
  • Magnetica pen
    Magnetica penI worked on this project for Nava (Milan), last year while at Giulio Iacchetti studio. The pen has a magnet at the end of the pen and on top of the cap, allowing to place the cap at the back while writing, still having the same round section through all the body and cap of the pen.
  • Moleskine Classic Bags collection
    Moleskine Classic Bags collectionDeveloped at Giulio Iacchetti studio. I collaborated throughout two years with Moleskine company, for updating their bags collection and extending it with new models.
  • Il Coccio Design collection
    Il Coccio Design collectionI've been in charge of the management of this collection while at Giulio Iacchetti studio. I followed the development of all 18 projects, made by 15 designers. My activities included reviewing projects concepts, adjusting 3Ds for production, going to the manufacturer's workshop in Nove, Italy, to check prototypes, and managing packaging production.
  • Kintoki knives
    Kintoki knivesDeveloped at Giulio Iacchetti studio. The idea of this knives collection for Hands on Design (Milan) is to shift the handle up as possible, in order to have more space for your fingers while using the knife. They've been manufactured by Banshu Hamono artisans in Japan.
  • Capodoglio
    CapodoglioDeveloped at Giulio Iacchetti studio. This wooden wale is made from a lathed shape, cut and refined up to the final shape.

  • Case 2: Product design & rendering
    Case 2: Product design & renderingDeveloped at the Giulio Iacchetti studio for FW18 Moleskine collection. Based on the ideas of the designer, I have been creating a series of sketches followed by realistic graphic renders of the entire bag line. The main focus was to show with greater fidelity the general aesthetic. This included the technical parts of every single component of the collection, and to facilitate client ad vendor understanding. I developed these drawings by hand using pen and marker and then colored them with digi
