Alessandra Francesca Borzacchini
The objects I produce embrace applied arts and craftsmenship with a contemporary sensibility, because it is nice to touch them and not only look at, so enriched by the hands' work, the surprise of metamorphosis, of thought, poetry and sense of timelessness.
Beautiful is what makes us feel good. It's beautiful to live in an environment that is cozy, comfortable, able to lick our senses and relax our muscles, to achieve the maximumu of easiness.
And looking around, looking at objects whose sight can massage our synapses and make us smile.
After graduating from Japanese Language and Literature at La Sapienza University in Rome, traveling to the Far East, Europe and America, a precious experience in the field of fashion in Milan, and several years of study and practice in the applied arts, in 2004 she founded Ornaments as an interior decoration firm, specialized in restyling old pieces of furniture as a custom service. Since 2007 Alessandra makes one-off pieces or small series as self-producer, mixing up design, art and handycraft. Following the ready-made principles, the result is a not conventional design.
