The world offers so many possibilities and I want to seize them to leave a significant trace for those who will come after us.

In 2006 he was selected as part of the most representative international designers from 1954 to 2006 for the “50+2y Italian design” exhibition in Beijing. His projects are published in top Italian and international trade magazines.
As always in my projects, the starting point is designing something that doesn’t really look like it has been designed. Meaning that I’d rather seek the essence of things in my projects! I believe that despite the contemporary nature of my projects, there is actually a strong classical sense. I don’t mean classic as the copy of a capital or a baroque floor, but as proportion between all the parts, a balance in terms of form. This is why for Foxtrot I thought of reinterpreting the worlds of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. While being a strong innovator, Mondrian has a strong Classical element in him.”
Foxtrot stands out for its uniform, elegant and yet essential appearance. When taking a close look to the wooden surface, we discover a geometrical pattern that can constantly generate new, different shapes by simply moving the angle of view.
