Graduated first in sociology in Rome and then in design and innovation at Central Saint Martins College in London, Federica lived and worked in London as a lighting designer for four years until 2020.
By working within different lighting design firms, such as Isometrix, Studio 29, and LDC, she worked on projects such as Regent Street and Oxford Circus facades in London, Hotel Hilton, Mandarin Oriental hotels, Meydan Beach hotel in Dubai, Belmond, and so on, while collaborating on architectural projects by Lissoni Associati, David Chipperfield, Patricia Urquiola, Rockwell Group, and others. She specialized in lighting for hospitality and exclusive residential projects including private art collections, garden lighting and historical heritage.
In 2019 Federica started developing her first independent furniture pieces, enlarging her interest outside the lighting sphere and exhibiting at Salone del Mobile in Milan, Maison et Objet BHV in Paris, and Istituto Marangoni in London through Galleria Rossana Orlandi. The product was featured on Dezeen, AD, Marie Claire, London Design Festival, and others.
In 2021 she taught Lighting Design at La Sapienza University in Rome and opened her own studio that keeps working on lighting projects in Italy and abroad but also explores furniture design through experimentation and conceptual installations. By matching different disciplines to push the boundaries of the existing, her sociological passion has still a big role in her work, with the main focus being the human relationship with nature and the concept of the unknown.
