There are two things behind the creativity and talent of Monica Graffeo: first of all, the research of materials, and secondly, an effort to interpret the companies’ identities. Her style could be defined as essential and refined with a touch of femininity, which makes her an interesting member of Friulian design.

Monica Graffeo was born in 1973 in Pordenone, where she still lives and works. In 1996, after pursuing classical studies, she specialized at the Italian School of Design in Padua. Her career began with designers Fausto Boscariol and Gabriele Centazzo of Valcucine. In 1998, she began to collaborate directly with various companies. She won the first prize in the Young & Design Award of 2003.

''I have a messianic view of design. I like to believe that the process of thought and the development of the project, as well as the powers of ethics and pragmatism, might all fuel a positive evolution in our society."
