Miss Elena Del Signore


I am a Designer and educator with a background in Product & Textile Design. 

I taught at different institutions nationally and internationally both at undergraduate and master level . I have a broad experience working with the Design industry , my projects have been published and exhibited at important venues such as Milan Furniture Fair, Dutch Design Week , Venice Design Week. Important prizes received include the "American Architecture & Design award"  for innovation and sustainable practices and  eVolo-VModern Furniture Design award.

Within my multi-disciplinary practice I am very interested in bringing together principles of sustainability and the human interaction and emotional connection with products and spaces . My investigation often engages materials and textile practices as a primary catalyst for the development of projects at different scales.
