During his studies in industrial design at the Polytechnic of Milan, in 2005 he won the “AD Young
Designers Awards” and soon started cooperating with Cibic&Partners. The year after he partecipated
in some workshops at Fabrica (Benetton research and development communication centre).
Fascinated by conceptual art and excited for change, he moved to the Netherlands
to attend a master at the Design Academy Eindhoven. After a period spent at Antonio Iraci &Partners
involved designing shops and house's interiors, he worked at Cibicworkshop design research center
in Vicenza.

Here he worked for design companies and institutions such as Foscarini, Artemide, Serralunga,
Antonangeli, Leucos, La Rinascente, PaolaC., Emu, La Triennale di Milano, Kunsthaus Graz, Gran
Teatro La Fenice, Mondo S.p.a., VeronaFiere, Cazzaro, The city of Cartagena (Colombia), Quarella,
Environmental furniture.

In 2010 he took part in the collective "Recession design" at the Milan Design Week and was invited to
take part at the project "AAA Cercasi Nuovo Artigiano" which ended with a touring exhibition. He is
now working as consultant for companies, developing projects in exhibition and product design. He
recently established SirAlbert&Mr.Simon studio with Simone Polga.
He believes in the truth of objects and in the value of experiencing things. Objects come to life as time
go by, and the minute we become attached to them we can’t do anymore without them. The
unconscious connection between emotion and familiarity gives rise to his interpretation of design.
