Anna Perugini (b. 1982) is an interdisciplinary designer who engages in material experimentation, one-off commissions and mass-produced products. Her research centres on exploring materials and their cultural significance. Anna experiments with matter and making techniques. She rethinks material aesthetics by seeking to question the cultural and environmental hierarchies dominating design and production systems.
In 2007, Anna earned a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Design from ISIA Roma (IT) and received the Arts and Human Research Council (AHRC) scholarship, which allowed her to pursue a Master's in Industrial Design at Central Saint Martins in London. During her time in London, she worked as an interior and industrial designer for over a decade.
Motivated by the need to align her social and ecological ambitions with her design practice, Anna continued her studies and graduated from the GEO-Design Master's program at Design Academy Eindhoven (NL) in 2022.
