Maurizio Capannesi (Roma 1977), after a master degree in statistics decided to dedicate himself to his greatest passion: product design.

He moved from Amsterdam, where he was working as an epidemiologist, to Barcelona. Here he first studied design as an autodidact and then attended a postgraduate course in furniture design at ELISAVA.

Behind every product that Maurizio designs lies the desire to create objects that are able to establish new bonds and evoke old feelings; objects capable of making our homes more personal and unique.

His concepts come to life in his workshop where he personally makes all the prototypes, giving preference to the use of traditional materials like wood and textiles but always willing to discover new techniques and materials.

 

In 2016, together with Fabrizio Acanfora, Maurizio opened Oggetto Design Shop Barcelona, a design store showcasing a mix of local as well as European design, focused on on the human dimension from design to production, and care about sustainability and environment.
