I am fond of both, design and art, and I like in my creative activity dosing some of one and some the other. To me design achieves an harmonious synthesis of functional and formal and, at higher levels, follows the evolution of conceptual universes or the incomparable examples of Nature. Art instead - mine is a romantic vision - is the process that can pour in a particular form of expression something able to intuitively evoke an emotional or mental state. Personally I like the art, when it is able, at least, to tickle the human soul.

Stefania Vola, a background in the humanities and a degree in architecture (2002), has always shown a keen and creative interest in art. At the beginning of her career she collaborated with a few well-known architects in Turin, her city, active principally in the planning of trade shows in the fields of fashion and sports (Think Pink, Converse All Star, and 55DSL).
In 2004 she decided to go solo and started the free profession, concentrating on restructuring of buildings and interior design. A year later, she proposed, developed and realized for the Turin Architect Guild and
Chamber of Commerce, an unusually eccentric Turin Guide dedicated to highlighting life-style and design in the city – Turin Tour – orchestrating and conducting a valid support team. This Guide was revamped for the 23rd UIA – World Congress of Architecture Torino 2009.
She started collaborating with Studio Vassallo in Turin in 2006, and was involved with cultural projects for public institutions in various Italian regions [Piedmont, Liguria, Sardinia, Sicily], as well as the staging of
exhibitions. Most projects pivoted around museum installations, often with multi-media, immersive, and interactive formats. Above all she designed the multimedia ‘Museo del Clown’ at Villa Grock, in Imperia – dedicated to the extraordinary clown known as Grock and to the fabulous world of clownwerie – which is nextly opening.
In these years Stefania has been active in the field of design and art design concentrating on interior decorating/furniture, lighting and jewelry. She prefers tackling creative inspiration from an indirect, transversal planning approach, interdisciplinary at best, emotional and always connected to poetic values – seeking in signs and materials a connective synthesis with the self. With this principle in mind, in 2011, Stefania did begin her 'interioritratti' project which is leading her to fulfill the vision and dreams of her lifetime.
'interioritratti' is a collection of few exclusive objects of art design, applied to luminaire, interior design, and accessories. Outstanding and artistically inspired objects that introduce a caesura into everyday habits, calling forth a poetic dimension (www.interioritratti.com)
November 2012: Blue Green Soul and Isadora, the 'Luminaria' serie prototypes, have been exhibited in an installation at Palazzo Ferrero D’Ormea, Turin.
December 2012: interioritratti prototypes have been exhibited in the Gianluca Bulega temporary shop, at the Golden Palace Hotel, Turin.
July 2012, a prototype of the lamp 'Quel genio di Arturo!' has been delivered to Arturo Brachetti during his performance at SD26 San Domenico in New York and the 'interioritratti' philosophy has been presented for the first time.
