Stefano Marchetto - Inventor & Designer
Stefano Marchetto was born and raised in Italy. He graduated at the Faculty of Design and Arts with a degree in Industrial Design and obtained a master's degree in Industrial Design at Politecnico in Milan. He is now working as freelance designer. His design philosophy could be summarized in 3 words: emorational - innovative - sustainable. “Emorational” is a word created mixing the words emotional and rational, meaning an ideal coexistence between the two values.
