Francesca Borelli was born in Rome on 1 March 1993.
After graduating from a scientific high school she earned her undergraduate degree in Product Design from the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Rome and is currently working towards a master’s degree in Design at the University of Florence (UNIFI).
She became interested in the subject matter as a young girl when she would accompany her mother to her architectural studio, discovering a sense of tranquillity and creativity and awakening her passion. She played with rulers, set squares, and colours, and above all spent most of the time staring at an enormous poster that showed chairs of every kind, drawing her own crooked and impossible versions. That poster is now on the wall in her room.
For as much as she is able, at such a young age, to define herself in the field of design, what she has thus far discovered is that she has a propensity for furniture design that is both emotional and conceptual.
She likes form as much as colour, and the two together.
People say she is introspective and analytical, and she hopes that one day her objects will represent her.
