FRANCESCA PERANI (born in Bergamo, in 1972) graduated in architecture from Politecnico di Milano in 1999. She cooperated with design and project studios in Belgium, Australia, UK and Italy. Among her mentors are Enzo Mari, Russel Hall and Edoardo Milesi.
She is an architect and designer, her work ranges from interior project design to interactive design.
Her act of design is based on experimentation and research.
She manipulates with dexterity both irony and wilful breaking with obvious patterns to represent unusual spaces and to stimulate new interactions.
She expresses herself through objects and surfaces with a strong communicative-emotional charge.
Craftsmanship and technology become inseparable elements defining a project.
She complements her profession with the compulsive use of photography to document “the everyday design”.
Since 2007 she owns and runs Francescaperanienterprise studio, working in interior architecture, design and art direction.
