Sara Ricciardi is a versatile designer, born in Benevento in 1989. She studied between Milan, Istanbul and New York, and she graduated in Product Design from NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan. Then she opened her own studio, where she designs products for companies, unique pieces for galleries and she devises performances and installations.
Her work stems from a deep, narrative exploration, and her extremely creative approach is based on a strict research method: each project follows a precise vision and aesthetics, while the shapes she creates stem from the message she wants to communicate.
She works with the best Italian masters of craftsmanship, in order to define the proper materials, techniques and finishing for each piece.
Between her most successful projects it is worth mentioning the vases designed for DoppiaFirma 2017 in collaboration with Nicolò Morales, the collection “Best of Italy” for Coin Casa and the setup of the concept store “Eden” in the Luisaviaroma shop in Florence at Pitti 2019, on the occasion of the launch of the capsule collection by Attico.
She has been selected by Wallpaper and Panerai among the finalists of “Next Designer Generator”, while Triennale Design Museum listed her between the “Women of Italian contemporary design”, and her works were displayed in the exhibition “Women in Design”.
She founded the collective “The Ladies’ Room”, together with Agustina Bottoni, Ilaria Bianchi and Astrid Luglio, with whom she creates original projects for different galleries.
She defines herself as a weird objects collector.
She teaches Relational Design and Co-design Practice at NABA and Domus Academy in Milan, and she runs international workshops about Urban Regeneration and Design Thinking.
