Furniture and Industrial Designer
Alyssa Coletti established Nonfiction Creative, LLC in 2010 as a multidisciplinary studio specializing in furniture design.
Alyssa's early career was spent as an in-house designer for Bernhardt Design, Lenovo and Williams-Sonoma Home. Throughout the developmental period of her career, Alyssa frequently interacted with established multi-national designers and participated in their design processes. Alyssa’s experiences provided her with the opportunity to design a wide variety of products through her own approach to product design and a conviction that timeless design is created by identifying, understanding and refining the essential elements of form, concept and craft.
A graduate of Purdue University, Alyssa received a degree in industrial design, and completed additional design and architectural studies in Denmark.
