About

I set my approach to design comes from an understanding of the relationship between the product and their users, linking this research to sustainability and technology.

Co-founder of Os Italianos Design along with Paolo Martini and Mirko Pierini, together we run an independent self-production design company focused on Upcycle design. The company was focused on developing projects with recovered materials, producing them thanks to a collaboration with the local handcrafters. The work was developed all around the local community but expand to sell and distributed internationally, also working with Company that wanted to develop Sustainable solutions using their post-production materials.

Based on this experience, interests and beliefs, I work as freelance settled in Lisbon.
