When designing, what superpower would you like to have?

Instantly materialize what I am imagining.

 

What do you value most in the design of a furniture wheel?

That it is resistant, silent and of friendly rolling, almost imperceptible and that transmits quality.
 

What if you had to design an object to put wheels what would it be?

I love making chairs without a doubt I would make one, however, I would also like in a luminaire with the concept of light that accompanies you.
 

If you could go to dinner with a designer, who would you go with?

Ron Arad, he has been a great inspiration in my development as a designer.
 

In what influential period of design would you like to be born?

In the 60s, it seems to me that it was a very purposeful time in de- sign, a time full of emotions.
 

Would you prefer to travel to the future or to the past?

To the past, to know how the pyramids were built haha, the future I like to be an unknown since with my decisions and actions I can shape the future.
 

Can you tell an anecdote about any of your projects?

At the Milan furniture fair 2017 I participated in Salone Satellite, the pieces that I was going to exhibit were delayed two days, I received the news one day before the fair started, so I had to improvise and intervene in the space taking advantage of the theme of the fair that was, design is…? With some sheets with the question a large blank space for them to write, draw or express in the way they wanted and they had to stick it on the wall in the center I drew an exclamation point and that represented the moment before an idea materialized and if they wan- ted to see the result of that idea they would come back in 2 days to see it, to my surprise it was a success and it was a great faria for me even without my pieces being there.
 

Do you have any favorite material to work with?

Plastic, I love it, it is a great material that can be recycled for 250 years or more, that gives a certain immortality to the pieces, also due to the variety of processes that I can use and the complexity in ways that can be achieved.
 

What is the last book you have read?

The Ky-balion, I like to learn about all kinds of subjects that are different, I think that enriches me a lot and therefore allows me to explore new fields in design.
 

What is your favorite conversation topic?

Anyone who can go deep enough to question beliefs, ideas and conceptions of the world, I love to reinvent or reinterpret the world.
 

What is the best memory of your childhood?

When my dad was going to pick me up at school, he would compare us some pork rinds with sauce and always without fail would stain his shirt, arriving home my mom would scold us hahaha.
 

What is the rarest object in your room?

I have a fiberglass cast of the last piece I made
 

What could we find in your garbage basket?

Many carcasses of bunnies Turin haha
 

Which of your designs would you choose to survive a zombie attack?

Ever design a sword just thinking about that scenario hahaha, I would definitely choose that piece.
 

What do you currently think of your first design?

Curiously, it was a cardboard chair that had to support a person sitting weighing 120 kg, and I think I would describe it as a series of lucky mistakes, I don’t know how, but it had very good ergonomics, resistance, it was very light, I used very little material.
 

If you wrote a book, what name would you put it?

The essentials, and it would deal with various topics starting with the essentials for life, starting with water, food, energy, education to topics with crazy theories that challenge the way of perceiving this reality and how we can shape it.
