Hi,

I am Davide, a Product & Interaction Designer, who understands the complexity, the challenges, and the potential of emerging technologies and translate them into products that seamlessly empower people’s lives. I think, we as designers, are able to bridge meaningful technological developments and real-world needs.

 

My ultimate societal impact is to design products that are be able to adjust to people’s physical needs and adapt to our constant emotional changes. To achieve that a set of skills and knowledge is needed. Therefore, my education was dedicated in the bachelor to traditional practices of product design and in the master’s to future practices of interaction design. Today, I’m a designer with a strong knowledge of Industrial Design processes, Interaction Design principles, Computational Design tools (e.g. generative and parametric design), concepts of Intelligent Systems (e.g. IoT and AI), materials innovation, and digital and physical prototyping tools.

 

My passion for design comes from the opportunity to explore, create, and solve challenges that people face when using daily products and spaces. And of course, for all those Eureka moments that happen throughout the design process.

 

Being a designer allows me to create impact on people through the conception of products that fit their needs, empower their lives or connect to their loved ones. It enables me to build their perception of physical, digital, and emotional ‘worlds’ through the design of physical products.
