Carlo Lorenzetti

1 / 3

BIOGRAPHY

Carlo Lorenzetti (b. 1990 Chicago, IL) is a designer from Michigan, USA. His formative training in pottery was the basis for his undergraduate studies, receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Michigan School of Art & Design where he studied ceramics and furniture design. Here the focus of his research was the relationship of digital fabrication to traditional craft techniques.

In 2015 he received his Masters degree from the Contextual Design department at Design Academy Eindhoven where his research was grounded in psychology and themes of the subconscious. Here his fascinations shifted away from hybrid fabrication methods to user experience. His craft background served as a foundation to explore domestic and primal archetypes in relation to human behavior, researching themes of the subconscious and psychoanalysis in relation to the design of objects.. An elemental core to his work are vessels and containers, which offer a physical and symbolic platform to work from. He currently lives and works in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
