ANDREA ANDRETTA

Inspired by concepts coming from the “Bauhaus” as well as Scandinavian influences, defines his design as “illusory”, where play of different thicknesses, asymmetry and uneven lines generate unusual visual effects. His objects are based on homogeneous shades, which play down the importance of colour, thus giving way to the plays of light and shadow.Born in 1985, (Andrea) obtained a PhD with honors in Industrial Design at “Università degli studi di Firenze”. He then broadened his own design experience working in a design studio in London.In 2009 he was awarded first prize in the national contest “Piatti fondine & co” with a set of dishes sponsored by “Frescura Porcellane” company.His is a philosophy that comes from a pure and modest design, carachterised by a continual study of materials where the space is considered as part of balance between objects and their setting.The artistic trend to which his works belong is based on a formal “lexicon” comprised of a few carefully defined elements in which space is taken into considaration and becomes an integral part of the work.His approach to the project arises from an innate interest for everything that surrounds him.Without leaving out aesthtic taste, he attributes a functional and pragmatic worth to the objects.
