Spalvieri / Del Ciotto
Both born in 1982, we met in 2003, during our bachelor’s degree in Product Design. We became a couple in life and then at work and are now a design duo. We have lived and worked in Milan, London and are now based in Tolentino. We have acquired a wide range of educational and professional experiences, on the basis of our personal interests:
Master degree in Product Design from “Politecnico di Milano” Design School. I worked as a trainee at Poltrona Frau in Tolentino, developing furniture projects for the home and contract sectors and also a prototype for my bachelor’s degree dissertation project. While still studying at Milan Polytechnic, I worked as a trainee at “Atelier Bellini” in Milan, where I developed kitchenware and furniture projects. After obtaining the Master degree, for two years I worked at Italo Rota & Partners in Milan as a freelance product designer, developing mostly lighting projects.
