“A teacher once told me that simplicity is a real achievement. Since that day I began to take off more and more since I learned my design.”

I have always been looking for a design that gives light to architectures. With firms of the sector, as a lighting designer and creative director, I develop the creative project and harmonize it with the industrial process, to create in glass and light.

During my working experience I practiced architecture, graphics, interior design and industrial design. What thrilled me the most was glass and lighting. A real revelation that brought me to learn how to elaborate, design and invent with glass and light.

I graduated from the Venice Institute of Architecture. I continued the studies at the Polytehnic University of Milan where I learned the design aspects of lighting.

From that moment my goal has become the pursuit of efficiency of light, as a result of the beauty of the industrial product. Therefore I learned how to use production and engineering at their best for industrial decorative lamps.
