PHILOSOPHY – A great collector of Italian design masterpieces and curious towards all objects, her work is based on observation and research, plumbing the potential of the shapes, functions and going beyond the traditional relations between fashion, art and design and embedding a passionate interest for the old and the new, the traditional and the contemporary in her projects, she develops creative solutions and freely plays with ideas. Common features to all projects are defined geometry and rigorous research, combined with a subtle play on the impact of traditional forms. Through variations of scale and small inventions, the objects are able to convey new messages and different meanings.
