Serena Confalonieri (1980) is an indipendent designer and art director based in Milan. She works on product, graphic and textile design projects and collaborates with many italian and international companies. Her works are placed in-between product and graphic design: an accurate research on the surfaces is always present in her projects. After a Master Degree in Interior Design, she started her career working in many architecture and design practices in Milan, Barcelona and Berlin, and collaborated with the Interior Design Faculty of Politecnico of Milan as assistant professor. In 2013 she made her debut at Milan’s Design Week with her Flamingo rug, produced by Nodus. During the years she’s been selected for design residencies and workshops in Italy and abroad (New York, Mexico, Portugal), her works have been published by important newspapers and magazines (The New York Times, Corriere della Sera, Il sole 24 ore, Wallpaper, Interni, Ottagono, L’Officiel, Elle Décor…), and she won prizes such as a Special Mention at the Young&Design Awards in 2014 and the German Design Awards in 2016. Her works have been exhibited in important locations such as La Triennale di Milano and Rossana Orlandi’s gallery.
