About Daniele Semeraro : Daniele ‘Danne’ Semeraro is an interior and industrial designer born and raised in Sweden. He gained a degree in interior and industrial design at Accademia Italiana in Florence, Italy. Over the years Semeraro worked for a wide range of design firms from Sweden to California. His focus has always been on product design and after a design manager experience for a top lighting manufacturer, he started Sempli in Los Angeles. He has since been featured in international press and awards for his designs. Sempli established its success with the spinning Cupa-glass series in 2002. Since then, it’s evolved to include spinning decanters, nesting bowls, lighting fixtures and its first family of flat-bottom glassware. With Sempli, Semeraro can showcase his true design heritage.
