I consider myself a creative globetrotter. Born in Venezuela from a Venezuelan mother and an Italian father, raised in the Old Continent; I dream about the day I will hold an EU passport in my hands. I currently live in the Costa Brava, Spain, the most similar place I could find to my second home, the Central Coast of California. After several years working in the fashion retail industry, I currently work as a trend research and forecaster in the field of fashion and interior design.


UN estimated that every week, 1.5 million people move from urban areas to a city. To give you an idea of the impact this trend has, Milan (Italy) has 1.3 million inhabitants (Istat, 2017). The assumption that follows is that by 2030 there will be 43 megacities in the world. A megacity is a single metropolitan area, although it can refer to two or t...

It is not a fresh new that overall the population in the world is getting older; though the problem is common to several areas of the world when taking a closer look at regional data, Europe is leading this demographic shift. According to UN data, the continent is not only old in its incredible history, is home to the oldest population of the world...

Environmental issues connected to the use of plastic, such as marine and landfills pollution, have been trending topics since at least a year. Indeed, in Western Europe, approximately 92 kilograms of plastic per person are consumed annually and according to Forbes, globally, humans buy a million plastic bottles per minute. Scary, right? And, if you...

Some kids dream of becoming pilots of speed cars such as Ferrari, other kids, dream about designing them. I cannot say for sure that this is what Flavio Manzoni was dreaming of when he was a young boy living in Nuoro, Sardegna, but I like to think so. For sure, since a very young age Flavio’s taste was exposed and influenced by his father, an archi...

Sara Ricciardi is a young designer, already recognised as one of the trailblazers of the Italian design. She was born in Benevento (Campania) where she grew up eating pomegranates and drawing on the walls: freedom characterised her childhood, as she recalls; freedom characterises her design, I add.  She completed her studies in Arts between three v...

On April 9th opened the 58th edition of Il Salone del Mobile; as every year, for almost a week, the world was focused on Milan where it is always possible to catch up with the latest changes in style, values and needs, in other words to chat up with the latest trends in the field of design. So, what did we see? Innovation, future thinking and disru...

Alessandro Mendini graduated as an architect but through his career he also worked as a designer, teacher and journalist. Mendini was born in Milan in 1931 and passed away last month, leaving behind a path of creativity in fields that, in spite of their differences, overlap.

“The beautiful thing about New York is that they give a chance if they think there is talent behind, there is creativity, that is given to you, and I think it’s an amazing thing that doesn’t happen anywhere”: with these words architect Luca Andrisani recaps to interiordesign.net his collaboration with Lenox, a market leader in houseware.  Luca Andr...

When it comes to intervening on a natural territory, every single decision must be taken in harmony with the surroundings, in-sink with the rhythms and materials of nature. Maybe this is what Roberto Dini and Stefano Girodo, research architects at the Mountain Architect Institute of Turin, had in mind when together with Leapfactory designed a lodge...

According to Waste Management World, data from 2016 shows that an average household produces more than a tonne of waste every year; and it is during the Holiday season that we produce the most, creating 30% more waste than usual.

Artists and designers, creatives in general, have the capacity to draw inspiration from nature and from what surrounds us. Observation is of course an indispensable tool, artists see details invisible to most eyes and are able to translate them into the universal language of art, for us “common mortals” to enjoy.

Technology is more and more embedded in our lives, so much that the IoT (The Internet of things), namely all the devices we have connected or function connected to internet, will be soon called the IoE (The Internet of everything). This scenario sounds as intriguing as scary but it opens the opportunity for designers to create new products, with n...
