Lisa Brustolin is an Italian-born designer currently based in Rotterdam, whose focus lies in creating vibrant and unconventional objects that challenge traditional design norms.
With a degree in Industrial Design from IUAV University of Venice, which gave her a background both in graphic and product design, she spent several years working as a graphic designer before experimenting with furniture design, eager to explore a new dimension of creativity.
Inspired by Josef Albers' studies on color interaction, Lisa’s practice explores ways of giving shape to colors, through patterns and materials, in order to obtain different perceptions and behaviors depending on the user interaction. She carefully selects bold color combinations that interact in specific ways, acting as the primary shaper of sensations. The results are graphic expressions molded into tridimensional objects, characters that enhance the surrounding space by breaking the monotony of everyday common spaces.
Lisa's first collection, 'In Transition', includes a cabinet, a bookcase, and a mirror, which were showcased at Object Rotterdam before being featured at the Mint Gallery during the London Design Festival in 2022. She collaborates with master craftsmen in both Italy and the Netherlands to amplify the three-dimensional effect of her designs.
The aim of the collection is to keep a small production of limited pieces that showcase research, craftsmanship and uniqueness, in objects that can establish a personal relationship with their owners.
