We talk a lot about design and Italy here at Krome. But who are the best Italian Designers nowadays? There’s so many!
Despite knowing that it would be impossible to talk about all of them in one post, we had a little fun selecting our favourites at present.
Here is our selection of the 6 Italian Designers you need to follow now. Enjoy!
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.

Matteo Cibic is the Italian designer who was awarded the International Young Talent of the Year 2017 by Elle Decor. Also, he is founder of Matteo Cibic, creative company based in Milan and Vicenza.
Furthermore he is very well-known for his joyful aesthetic and works indiscriminately with industrial processes and small artisans, for luxury brands, collectors and hi-tech companies. You can read about one of his latest projects on Italianbark – Matteo Cibic for Marazzi at Fuorisalone 2018.

Another designer on our list is Serena Confalonieri, who originally graduated in Interior Design and is well-known for her research on surfaces.
She is an indipendent designer and art director based in Milan. Therefore her work focuses on product, graphic and textile design as she collaborates with many Italian and international companies. Among her clients you’ll find Azimut Yachts, cc-tapis, Coin Casa, Crate&Barrel USA, Malìparmi, Nodus, Porro, Saba Italia, Swatch, Wall&decò.

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.
You can see some of her work on Alessandra’s website, which is a beautiful combination of fun and minimalistic.
