Italian by origin and European as a choice, Luca is an interaction designer that does not like to talk about himself in third person. I am keen on the intersection of technology, art, philosophy and making. I just graduated from a Masters in Architectural Design at IA Lab, University College of London, UK. Recently I obtained the Fab Academy diploma at Fab Lab Toscana, Siena, Italy. As an undergraduate I proactively wanted to diversify my academic experience. While pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, my curiosity brought me to Robotics and Learning Lab at University of Siena, Italy, for an intern-ship and to Carnegie Mellon School of Design, US, for an exchange.Download CV
I believe in the encounter of HCI research and practice, and I see the making of prototypes as the bridge. I have worked on projects that show my interest for academy and were published in field-relevant conferences.
Next to the use of traditional wood-modelling machines, I can design both 2D (Adobe Illustrator) and 3D (Solidworks) and operate CNC machines, such as laser-cutter, CNC-router, 3D printers and UR-10 robots
During my career I have been surrounded by technical people as well as humanists. I believe in inter-disciplinary teams that foster debate within cutting-edge projects. I think I fit in such heterogeneous environments
This selection of projects in the realm of tangible interaction design, interactive installations and digital fabrication.
