Martina’s story

“I am just a girl obsessed with Interior Architecture.
When I was a baby I used to start all my games setting up the right interior. My Barbie dolls have never been homeless! Similarly, as a kid I would sneak into my dad and grandad’s office just to stare in admiration at their drawings.

inspired by my grandad…

…I got a Master’s Degree in Building Engineering. I soon realised though that I wanted to do something more creative in my life. Therefore, I moved to Milan, Italian design capital and got a second Master’s Degree in Interior Design at the Politecnico University.
After that, I only chose to work for small and medium companies. Hence, a sleeves-rolled up attitude was required in order to take more responsibilities and grow. And I’ve learned from the best.

i gained experience…

…working in Milan, Beijing and London. As I discovered different cultures and lifestyles I applied this international approach to my work as a result. Now, thanks to these experiences, I design projects worldwide”.
