About me
I am a skillful and collaborative Designer with over 20 years of experience in creative pursuits around the world, passionate about cultural diversity and human interactions. Inspired by the giants of modern design and fresh names of the creative industry from every corner of the planet, I combine a multidisciplinary career in the fields of Product Design, Graphic Design, Information Architecture, User Experience Design, and Project Management. My practice supports the emerging concept of Open Design, driven by a desire to collaborate in the construction of social and environmental value and to be part of social change.
Projects
  • Open Source Plant Stands
    Open Source Plant StandsAlmost ready for the launching of a new collection of designs! Once again, the focus is on furniture that meets the needs of children and adults alike. My design practice is informed by an extensive research on the science of early childhood. Commonplace artefacts are reinvented through my understanding of activities that attract the interest of children and afford opportunities for action. In the context of manufacturing processes, I have always been fascinated by the idea of industrial waste
  • CANOPY PROJECT
    CANOPY PROJECTLasting furniture that will remain with the family after the child grows. Furniture with another level inside: the family. The CANOPY COLLECTION (2021) explores freedom of movement and elements of discovery, playing with emotions and creating memories for children and adults. A design that attracts interaction welcoming the child to the social areas of the home.

     - London, United Kingdom
    To explore beyond the surface of things is my strength. I believe that it is the responsibility of professional designers to make a wise use of the body of knowledge and technology available today to provide the beauty, safety and interaction sought by the users. That is why I treasured the opportunity of being a student of the MA Design (Ceramics, Furniture, Jewellery) postgraduate course at the Central Saint Martins College - University of the Arts London, from 2019 to 2021.
