Her projects are often inspired by food, its history and culture. Given the diverse nature of each experience, she has developed a multidisciplinary approach with a specific interest on the interactive aspect of a product or a space

After a degree in Product Design at NABA in Milan, Astrid Luglio started collaborating with several design studios, first in Milan, and then in Melbourne.

Tavola, produced by Abet Laminati

‘Tavola, produced by Abet Laminati, is a dining table with the tabletop made out of pRal, a solid, self-colored composite material that is made up of acrylate and natural minerals. It is light, resistant and decorative. The welded structure is fixed to the tabletop trough magnets.

‘ORDINE, DISORDINE, CAOS’ a project by The Box with the support of Arper, curated by Davide Fabio Colaci Simple Flair, offered three young designers the chance to interpret the contemporary world through the lens of these three themes, highlighting design’s unique ability to condense the complexity of daily life. “My interpretation of the word DISORDINE consists in a composition of tableware made out of glass. Objects without a defined function that can be re-invented in infinite variations. Free shapes whose union compose  a mysterious and symbolic totem that amplifies the ritual and the emotional value of being at table” as declared by Astrid.
