Born from Italian and American parents Antonio Severi grew up surrounded by different cultures and perspectives. While studying design at the Free University of Bolzano he worked as assistant for Nitzan Cohen and freelanced for Studio Harry Thaler. Upon receiving his degree, he interned as product developer for HAY in Copenhagen after which he began his Masters studies at ECAL.
Curiosity in materials and everyday objects is at core of Antonio’s process. Starting from a rich collection of references he designs objects which embrace contemporary aesthetics, production techniques and crafts.
Antonio’s work is geared towards simplifying and reducing objects to their essence in search of more meaningful and sustainable products.
