Sara Ricciardi was born in Benevento in 1989. She lives and works in Milan. She is a multi-faceted designer, she completed her studies in Milan, Istanbul and New York, graduating in 2015 at the Naba - the New Academy of Fine Arts, in the Product Design department. For 4 years she has opened her own studio where she designs products for companies, unique pieces for galleries, performances, interiors and installations.
Her approach is characterized by a profound narrative exploration: every aesthetic is born following a precise story. The form follows the message. Great poetic and formal research are at the base of her method. Materials and processes are defined each time with the help of great masters of Italian craftsmanship. She is an excellent collector of bizarre objects.
