Q & A WITH DESIGNER STEFANIA MORANDI
Q: HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR WORK AND WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST MEMORY OF WANTING TO WORK AS A DESIGNER?
A: I have always had an appreciation for details and the way things are arranged. At an early age, I remember drawing pictures and I realized that I had found something that allowed me to use my imagination and creativity to the fullest.
Q: WHO OR WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST DESIGN INFLUENCE AND WHY?
A: Carlo Scarpa for his love of details, Cristopher Dresser for his technique, Michael Thonet for his immortal simplicity and elegance, Franco Albini because he was so accurate and brilliant with everything he did, Jaime Hayon for perfect interiors and coherence in every detail, Joseph Dirand for his love of real materials and elegance, and finally – Fabio Novembre – for his brilliant and extraordinary imagination.
Q: WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE DESIGN STYLES AND WHY?
A: Contemporary, because to me it is the language or architecture and design of today.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH RESTAURANT DESIGN?
A: I designed Souk, Casa Rubia, Four Corners Brewery and 3015 — all restaurant/hospitality projects at Trinity Groves. I also designed the pop-up shop at the Hilton Anatole Hotel for Kate Weiser’s Chocolatier. I created the Executive drawings for the facade of Amberjax and Resto Gastro Bistro.
