Marea is founded by two Italian designers that share their empathy and the same passion for the Italian manufacturing heritage.
Andrea is driven by his will of engaging tradition and innovation in new ways.
During his studies at Design Academy Eindhoven his interest moves across different fields such as Furniture, Fashion, Architecture and Technology.
After interning at studios such as Bless Berlin, Fabien Dumas and Carlo Ratti, Andrea graduated with Domestick Landscapes, a project that represented his interest as a designer: foretelling future living scenario and engaging industry in new technical challenges.
Mattia is a product designer and developer that blurs technical challenges with very tactile aesthetics.
After graduating from Isia in Florence and after working for the Italian furniture company Giovannetti, he moves to Berlin where he has been assisting Joa Herrenknecht since then.
Alongside Joa’s studio, Mattia has been a very active freelance product designer and developer for studios such as Joi Design, Milia Seyppel and Laura Strasser.
