Nicola Volpini
Designer Director
Based in
Florence, Italy
More than 10 years experience

I had the honour to cooperate with and for some prestigious brands. I like designing at 360°.
I have been designing, planning and developping for 20 years, jewellery, watches, bijoux, fashion accessories, glasses and packaging.

Working for a wide range of sectors, indipendent but complementary,


gives me the possibility to enlarge my inspiration view, and brings new prospective to each single project.

My curiosity in the nowadays change of taste brings me to face up every project in a different way, with the support of technology and innovation.
