Maurizio Prina was born in 1985 in Biella. After an artistic degree in Novara and an Industrial Design class at the European Institute of Design of Milan he starts a collaboration, which still goes on, with Alessandro Ciffo, enhanching the concepts of self-production and the relationship between art and design. In 2006 he starts to work with Matteo Ragni and Giulio Iacchetti in the Aroundesign studio. In 2007 he starts to be part of Matteo Ragni’s studio, where he follows different sides of industrial design: not only the development of projects for products, furniture, lamps and finitures, but he also follows exhibit design for fairs and museums. The studio also deals with art direction and design consultancy, for classic brands but also with new start ups. During the last years he worked for Alessi, Alpi, Campari, Danese, Fantoni, Lavazza, Lorenz, Pandora Design, Pinetti, Plank, Poltrona Frau, Triennale di Milano, W-eye and many more. From 2012 he started also to work as a freelance designer. Among his great passions there are, in no particular order, good food, designing and playing bass guitar.
