Francesca Giulia Poli

I am an italian industrial designer currently working in Sweden.
The core of my design attitude is the focus on local production, local material sourching and sustainable starting points in order to develop high quality and long lasting products.
I am now specializing in designing and producing furniture, lighting and outcomes in the area in between design and architecture.

I describe myself as a designer with a deep sensitivity on the dimension of the experience, both when it is related to humans and environment.
I am interested in rethinking behaviours behind the objects in order to design products that are meaningful in interaction and sustainable at a systemic level.
As my project shows, I am an eclectic designer. I am now specializing in designing and producing furniture, lighting and accessories, but I have a wider interest that covers architecture, interior and installations.
