Maurizio Capannesi


Founder of Oggetto. After a master degree in statistics decided to dedicate himself to his greatest passion: product design.
He moved from Amsterdam, where he was working as an epidemiologist, to Barcelona. Here he first studied design as an autodidact and then attended a postgraduate course in furniture design at ELISAVA.

Behind each product that Maurizio designs lies the desire to create objects that are able to establish new bonds and evoke old feelings; objects capable of making our homes more personal and unique.
His concepts come to life in his workshop, where he makes his prototypes giving preference to the use of traditional materials like wood and textiles, but always willing to discover new techniques and materials.
