How is the everyday life of a designer in Milan?
Less romantic than you imagine, I guess. We gather in the studio and work on current projects. The wonderful thing about this job is that every two or three weeks you have to face new issues and they are never repetitive.
Do you have any motivational phrase when things go really bad?
Actually I do not think so, we try to have fun in the studio and even when we are under pressure, we do not stop joking!
Do you listen to classical music?
As I child I did. When I grew up, I gave up… but now I often listen to ‘RadioClassica’ (an Italian radio broadcasting only classical music). I’m not an expert and I do not understand much about what I hear but I find it very charming.
How did you celebrate your last birthday?
I had dinner at home with my friends. They arranged everything: everyone brought something, including the cake, and it was beautiful!

How was your job for LumaSuite and what do you think about it?
We had never designed music accessories but it was really interesting. We realized how demanding musicians are and how much they care for their instruments, and it was a great opportunity to better understand carbon fiber production technology.
It was not easy at first to be able to combine the needs of end customers, productive constraints and our aesthetic research. From the very beginning, our goal was to create high performance cases, but also to think of fashion accessories as appealing and funny, I think the result is very interesting.
Plans for the future?
We are delighted to see how 4P1B grows a little bit every year, our customers are satisfied and the projects we develop convince us … I only hope that it will continue that way.
