Behind The Scenes
Trained as an industrial designer, Andrea Ruggiero approaches design as a generalist, bridging various disciplines: In addition to product design, he has been actively involved in the design and development of identity systems, furniture, packaging, and environments. His multidisciplinary practice focuses on delivering comprehensive design solutions to start-up ventures and internationally established brands and his work has been selected for numerous awards, including Interior Design’s Best of Year, the IDEA Award, the D&AD Award, and multiple Good Design awards — including one for Tempo, designed for Offecct in 2008.
Andrea studied at Domus Academy in Milan and received his degree in Product Design from Parsons School of Design in New York, where he has since taught a wide range of Product Design courses. Half Italian, half Hungarian, Andrea was raised in Italy, China, and Austria.
