Born in Rome, 1969, Alessandro Spalletta is an educator at various educational institutions, including ISIA in Rome, and the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan. He is one of the founders of Bottega Design — one of Rome’s most eclectic design agencies in the 90s, which specialized in cinema, television, graphics, and figurative art.
Alessandro is also known for his output as an industrial designer. Working alongside Cristina Croce, Tommaso Ragnisco, and Manuel Wijffels, he helped create the Gemmy lamp series for the Italian lighting company Slamp: “The Gemmy is a versatile and dynamic collection inspired by the polyhedric facets of desert gems, ” states the Slamp website. “The lamp’s geometries create an intriguing contemporary and refined kaleidoscope effect that enriches any interior. ”
Throughout the course of his career, Alessandro has designed products for Tim-Alitalia, Ford, Toyota, Ferrero, Enel, Disney, and Nestlè. He has also produced movie sets and video productions for Fox/Sky and Universal.
In 2001, he was awarded the Compasso D’Oro Youth Prize for Industrial Design.
