Marsica Fossati, born in 1987 and based in Milan. In 2011 she graduated in interior design at European Institute of Design with a thesis project in YACHT DESIGN. Afterwards she started working with a number of architecture studios. The projects have become increasingly important over time, giving her the opportunity to take the first step to work alone as interior designer.
"Creativity and inventiveness have always came out from my personality. Interior decoration, attention to detail and craftsmanship have always fascinated me .I don't like to define my style as minimal. I like Beauty. Beauty is said to be a subjective concept but, otherwise, I believe it is an objective value, because the aesthetic becomes a universal language when it is characterized as a form of expression .
The feeling for an object is characterized by its own life and by a story that, regardless of its material dimension, is related to the minds of who designed and realized that object. In a world where everything runs fast I think it's pretty natural, especially for young generations, to feel a nostalgia for a past that was objectively simpler and closer to nature so, by my side, it’s a very intimate occasion to simply smell the perfume of an old suitcase or an armchair and to create dynamic interiors that carry to different atmospheres .
I like the idea that the past inserts itself so powerfully in a time dimension that is too frantic. In my interiors and through my products, I always try to include elements from the past, often mixing a contemporary design with natural and rough materials, such as wood, glass, brass and marble. I love patterns and fabrics."
