Alessandro Mattia, equipped with a degree in Industrial Design from the esteemed Milan Polytechnic, embarked on his professional journey with a holistic approach that encompasses all facets of the creative process. His attention is particularly focused on the functional and emotional significance of products, as well as their sustainability, recognizing the importance of considering these aspects.

The exceptional career of Gloria Gianatti and Alessandro Mattia, founders of Sapiens Design Studio, is punctuated with accolades and exhibitions both in Italy and overseas. Their notable achievements include the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2019, as well as two A'design Awards in 2020 and 2021, the latter being specifically for their acclaimed Pan coat rack created for Nestart. Throughout their work, the duo emphasizes the inherent interaction between subject and object, seeking to establish a symbiotic relationship between the two.
At the core of their philosophy lies the belief that every object is a unique entity, possessing its own distinctive narrative. In their collaboration with Nestart, with a focus on upcycling waste materials, they embarked on an endeavor to extract value from the production process. Through careful analysis, they seamlessly transform two-dimensional sheets into exquisite three-dimensional objects, breathing new life into what was once considered mere scraps.
