Moreove, got diploma in Interior Design Academia Italiana in Florence. Also, achieved a master degree in Interior Design at European Institute of Design in Rome.

Studio Barberini & Gunnell receives assignments for renovations and interior projects in Italy and abroad. From several private clients emerges the request for the conception and the realization of custom made furniture, particular and unique which get the studio to specialize in a product – and industrial design.

Simultaneously the studio creates objects far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and limited editions. In this particular process, free from limitations of reproducible products, the studio experiments with different materials, refined craftsmanship and the most daring and extreme technical solutions pushing to a maximum the mechanical characteristics of the materials used.

Unique pieces, partly design objects, partly sculptures come to life. These projects sometimes stay jealously guarded in the Atelier Barberini & Gunnell as pieces of memorabilia.
