We studied architecture at the University of Parma and during the 5 years we have passionate in the world of 3D and architectural visualization. After graduation, we decided to turn this passion in our work.
The Salone del Mobile week in Milan was pretty busy: a lot of interesting projects, a lot of interesting people and a lot of inspiration. Coming back to the usual working routine, we decided to discuss with you one very important subject: the role of 3d for product and industrial design.
If you're trying to create something realistic you need to make little details which you didn't even noticed before, you may think that they are not needed or no one will notice, but the trouble is that exactly these details have the most powerful impact in overall.
I never planned to become a 3D artist. I have a degree in architecture, but my greatest passion has always been the interior design. At first 3D modeling was simply a tool to create and present my design solutions, but with time it grew on me and I became interested in it as an art.
