Davide Giulio Aquini
I was born in 1982 in Venice where I also studied Advertising and graphic Design. Product design has always fascinated me so I decided to go further and direct my study path in this direction while I was already working in a web agency. After a short training at the Domus Academy in Milan encouraged me to open my own business as a freelance designer. Now I deal with various aspects of design, from graphic to web, to the product, even if my biggest dream is to concentrate only in furniture and lighting design.
The design I prefer, and I try to interpret, is the one that avoids too many “meanings” that, with a touch of irony, immediately transmits its quality and makes the environment a better place.
Formabilio has been able to spread and promote Italian manufacturing tradition, giving the opportunity to young designers to gain visibility demonstrating how an ethical business model is possible.
