Lorenzo Capparucci

BIO

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 Studio Formafantasma 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 a designer for materieunite, a brand I created along with a team of designers, architects and developers, which designs custom projects and sells exclusively ecologically friendly and recyclable furniture for shops, offices, fairs, and privates.
