  • GIORGIA ZANELLATO
    GIORGIA ZANELLATO ITALY Giorgia Zanellato is a product designer born in Venice in 1987. She started her design studies at IUAV University of Venice where she developed a strong understanding at the functionality of objects and based her design around this. In 2009 she moved to ECAL in Switzerland to improve her drawing skills. For her master project she wanted to investigate a part of design that she wasn’t familiar with. She did her thesis about “Soprammobili” which means ornaments knick knacks in italian. She wanted to understand how and with which criteria to design an ornamental object which has no limits and rules to follow, but just visual and emotional aspects which change from person to person. She’s actually working in Fabrica's design department.
  • GONCALO CAMPOS
    GONCALO CAMPOS PORTUGAL Gonçalo Campos (born 1986) is a portuguese product designer. Graduating in product design in 2008, he soon after joined Fabrica, Benetton's communications research centre, in the design studio. This gave him the chance to work with brands such as SecondoMe, Seletti or Zanotta. Since 2010 has been developing a series of objects, continuing to explore the possibilities of design through function and material together with brands such as Munna, WEWOOD, Piodão Group or Vista Alegre. Campos prides on finding simple solutions, through the sound use of materials and production methods, in a process that starts from within the object towards the outside. This results in recognizingly "smart" objects, often with a certain humor; reflex of a relaxed way of thinking and curious attitude. These are products designed in a limbo between production saviness and practical and aesthetic values in a quest to create truly distinctive products.

His work has been published in the most influential magazines like Surface, DAMn°, Etapes, Interni, Intramuros and many others.

  • OSCAR DIAZ
    OSCAR DIAZ SPAIN Oscar Diaz studied design at the Ecole de Beaux Arts of Bordeaux, in France, and after working for Matali Crasset in Paris, he enrolled in the Design Products MA at the Royal College of Art in London then under the direction of Ron Arad, where he graduated in 2006. Upon graduation, he worked briefly in Japan designing furniture, before returning to London to establish his own practice in 2007. His work is not defined by a style, but rather by a way of understanding, exploring and questioning objects, while considering their context and the cultural associations embedded on them. Is this attention to the context where and object will live that allows him to work at both ends of the design spectrum, from limited edition pieces, made together with craftsmen and sold by galleries, to mass produced objects, developed in close collaboration with manufacturers in Europe and Asia. Plain and playful, his objects take inspiration from the everyday things, which by a simple twist become something unexpected. While challenging assumptions, each project proposes simple solutions that often involve a narrative aspect. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across Europe, and amongst his clients are the Institute of Contemporary Arts (UK), Muji ( JP), Terra Plana ( UK), DOIY ( ES), Domestic ( F ), Worldwide Co ( UK) or Phillips de Pury (UK/ US).
