Biography and career

Astrid Luglio

The Ladies' Room



Italian designer Astrid Luglio was born in Naples in 1988. She studied at NABA—the New Academy of Fine Arts—in Milan, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Product Design. Traveling has been part of her education, after the studies Astrid moved to Melbourne, Australia where she freelanced for local clients and had a brief experience of three months in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.


Upon returning to Italy the following year, she began working with Milan-based TourDeFork, a design studio inspired by food and culinary culture. In 2018, she founded her own independent studio and continues to work with clients in Milan, as well as Oslo and Naples. Astrid is also part of an ongoing collective, called The Ladies' Room, with fellow designers Ilaria Bianchi, Agustina Bottoni, and Sara Ricciardi. Together they have started a reflection on contemporary design, through the creation of artifacts and experiences that investigate the renewed need for a sensory involvement.
