Maurizio Montalti. Strongly rooted in a collaborative, research-based and experimental approach, Maurizio Montalti’s work tends toward the exploration of the design discipline, aiming to investigate and reflect upon contemporary culture, thereby creating new opportunities and visions for both the creative industry and the broader social spectrum. Maurizio’s practice, “Officina Corpuscoli”, seeks to reveal unorthodox relationships among existing paradigms, aiming to promote the growth of critical thinking, through the development and materialisation of tangible alternatives. Maurizio holds a Master in Industrial Engineering from the University of Bologna (IT) as well as a Master in Conceptual Design in Context from the Design Academy Eindhoven (NL). His work has been widely shown in multiple museums, exhibitions and festivals, both nationally and internationally.
