Dynamic, motivated and curious, Matteo put passion in his work, paying close attention to the choice of materials, combining aesthetics and functionality.
Always fascinated by the production processes, working with Italian companies, he learns very quickly the value and the quality of made in italy.
His experience in different realities gives him a solid background of knowledge about everything that revolves around design: graphic design, interior design and art direction.
The good design of a product is the result of the encounter between creativity and a strong analysis, which is why constant research into materials and finishes is fundamental.
After several pen sketches, we move on to more concretely outline the shapes using three-dimensional modeling software and generate photorealistic renderings.
It is essential that the project will express the value of the brand and all its know-how.
