About me

I am fascinated by materials and contrasts, by the texture of a surface, by the skin of the design. As a designer, I like everything that can be improved, discovered. I like the use of new technologies for the unconventional fields of the design, especially 3D printing. As a textile designer, I like to work on the body, to improve its functionality but also it's aesthetic and it's feeling. While as an industrial designer I like to work for the user experience, play with the materials and the shapes.
