Roberto Sironi

Roberto Sironi is an Italian designer, who lives and works in Milan. His design practice is defined by a research-based and process-oriented approach, where thinking and making converge in the creation of artifacts, which are processed according to a narrative dimension that incorporates anthropological, archaeological and geographycal references.
This approach materializes through a body of work that breaks with the primary function by blurring the boundary between functional object and sculpture: his works are conceived as contemporary ultra-signs, where the transformation processes re-signify matter, revealing its hidden qualities and giving it new meanings.

The practice, founded in 2015, embraces different types of design practices such as bespoke, installation design, research and design consultancy, through the collaboration with institutions, galleries, companies and private clients. Roberto Sironi also combines his practice with teaching and research activity in the Design Department of Politecnico di Milano, where his studies focus on new technologies for design.
