She moved to Milan in 2009 and the following year started producing her own furnishings and lamps under the name Attico.
In 2012 she was selected to take part at the salone satellite. Following years her projects have been exhibited at various international design fair and gallery.
As a designer she has collaborated with several companies. Actually her work spans from limited editions for galleries and museums, to mass products for major companies, to exclusive commissions for brands.
A great collector of Italian design masterpieces and curious towards all objects, her work is based on observation and research.
Common features to all projects are defined geometry and rigorous research, combined with a subtle play on the impact of traditional forms. Through variations of scale and small inventions the meanings of objects are often changed.
