I am a designer and researcher, founder of MATEREA - digital factory for non-standard fabrication.
I'm working in the fields of design, manufacture, robotic and programming. I design products and processes with a strong creative component, following innovative and visionary ways. I focus my work on people, materials and shapes, experimenting new methods, techniques and production technologies. I want automating the non-standard; synchronizing advanced digital design, robotics production and assembly to obtain diversity in design and flexibility in production. I develop functionality and aesthetics according to sustainable productive and commercial processes, innovative or alternative, designed to eliminate overproduction and to add value to raw materials, approaching the design value to the handcraft production value and the possibilities given by new technologies. My projects are rooted in the tradition of the production but they look to the future, I believe that knowledge of the traditional craftwork can add cultural significance to the technological progress. I consider the sharing of competence, expertise, and contents very essential for the growth of the collective knowledge. My creative thought combines design and manufacturing, digital and analogic, code and material, spiritual and physical. I define my work postindustrial design.
