Federico Peri

Rising Talents - January 2018

FEDERICO PERI NOMINATED BY LUCA NICHETTO

He had just graduated from the Interior Design Department of Milan’s Istituto Europeo di Design when Federico Peri (1983) received a grant to study in Paris. From this very intense time of his life, he remembers the passion he felt for the great masters, his encounter with designers like Matali Crasset and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, and his fascination for the conflict and synergy between historical and contemporary design styles. When he returned to Milan, he worked with Vudafieri Saverino Partners until 2011, then founded his own studio, specialising in interior architecture and interior design. He has collaborated with companies like FontanaArte, and has his limited-edition pieces displayed at the Milan-based Nilufar Gallery – including Shapes, a collection of lamps nominated for a German Design Award in 2016.

“I’ve noticed in his work a natural inclination to design products as a way to create an experience through materials or the environment produced by the objects themselves,”

Italian designer Luca Nichetto commented.

“It is this type of completely instinctual process that makes Federico particularly interesting on the Italian scene. But it’s also what gives him immense potential abroad. I am especially curious to see how his approach will evolve as he shifts towards more industrial processes. The result will most likely be very moving.é

For MAISON&OBJET, Federico Peri will be presenting his limited-edition products, as well as series- produced pieces. All of them exemplifying his research on multifunctionality and lighting, both of particular interest for Italian designers.
