FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
GC: Things working always fascinated me, but my interest in design started when I attended University studying Architecture
FS: What is "design" for you?
GC: Design is anticipating questions to come exploring possible solutions
FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
GC: I have no preferences. Every object is worthy of attention.
FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
GC: I often choose eco-friendly materials and technologies with a low environmental impact, but for me every material has many interesting features
FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
GC: I focus especially the relation between shape and function
FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
GC: In general, I feel contrasting emotions. It depends on the stage of the project.
FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
GC: In my opinion a designer has to work conscientiously without superficiality
FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
GC: Maybe in the future design will try many different ways. All of them will be absolutely thrilling.
FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
GC: A strong inspiration comes from the curiosity of observing our changing society
FS: Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
GC: I come from Italy and I live in Italy. The culture of my Country influences me, but I think that this influence has becoming lighter and lighter because of the increasing mix of different cultures.
FS: Do you have any works-in-progress being designed that you would like to talk about?
GC: I've already realized a multitasking table with a bacterial filter and an essences diffuser for my 'Ecodesign Collection'. I've also realized objects made with bioplastic. I'm sure I will continue this research.
FS: How can people contact you?
GC: My design studio is in Varese (Italy). People can contact me here by email or by phone.
