After completing his studies at the age of 23 he already signed his first project for the Sign of Leonardo Luce Italia, collaborating simultaneously with the CRIED (IED Research Center), developing projects for companies such as Pirelli, Guzzini and Campari. In 2006 he founded the De-signum studio where he began and increased relationships with important national and international companies, designing lighting fixtures, products for interior and exterior furnishings, accessories for fashion and exhibition spaces. In 2012 he collaborated on the birth of the Pimar Desin Collection, succeeding in uniting a centenary material like the Lecce stone, with the modern and contemporary vision of some of the most known national and international designers, and young promises of Italian design. The collection was presented in 2012 in the heart of Brera and in 2013 at the Salone del Mobile, during the design week in Milan.
Since 2014, after the opening of his studio in Cannes, he works between Italy and France. He defines himself as a designer with an "iconic" style. His projects stand out for their refined naturalness, clear and essential lines, translated into functional and heterogeneous objects.
