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.
Italian designer Luca Nichetto commented.
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.
