Lorenzo Capparucci

After graduating with honors at the ISIA Roma Design, Italy’s oldest institution in the field of industrial design, I worked as junior designer in the renowned Formafantasma Studio in Amsterdam and as a gallery assistant in the remarkable Giustini/Stagetti modern and contemporary design gallery in Rome. During my time in the gallery I had the opportunity to travel around the world, taking part in different fairs while experimenting of different cultural backgrounds. Thanks to the experience I also managed to gain a discerned merchandising knowledge. I’m currently a designer for materieunite, a brand I created along with a team of colleagues, which designs and sells exclusively ecologically friendly and recyclable furniture for offices, fairs, and events. I possess a wide range of skills which are pivotal in order to give life to and manage the widest variety of projects.
