Nomade Architettura

First of our selection, Selina Bertola is the founder of Nomade Architettura and Interior Design, architectural practise based in Milan. While she originally studied architecture in Milan, she then moved to London to attend a master’s degree in Interior and Spatial design at the Chelsea College of Art and Design. As much as her wanderlust, work experiences brought her around the world, where she developed a strong interest in different cultures and ways of living.

As a result, today Nomade Architettura is a young and vibrant all-female practise, designing in Italy and abroad.

Two women, Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto, are the founders of Studiopepe. While they describe it as a design agency, they focus on interiors, product design and creative consulting. Therefore their projects stand-out for their strong visual identity, based upon experimenting, continuous research on colours and materials and the contamination between the various contemporary languages.

Maybe you remember that we talked about them in this post about the Top 5 exhibitions from Milan Design Week 2018.

Last but not least, Alessandra Baldereschi is an independent designer based in Milan. Her products are a pleasant mix of art and industrial design. Maybe because of a subtle influence from Japan, where she lived for some time.
