DESIGN FASHION / HOME ACCESSORIES: Lisa has designed accessories collections for the fashion, home and craft markets, as well as developed surface manipulation techniques and fabric print designs, for her own collections and those of others. With a keen appreciation of style and aesthetics, a thorough knowledge of materials, design / productions processes (both artisanal and industrial), accompanied with a profound love of quality craftsmanship, her expertise is sought out after by companies worldwide.
TEACHING / WORKSHOPS: “Giving back” or better yet, the “passing on” of knowledge and experience has always been an integral part of her career. In 2008 she founded Process 4, an experimental laboratory that actively invests in research, design and craft. The organisation conducts workshops, courses and research projects, independently and in collaboration with design schools, universities and businesses that connect the expressive capacity of traditional craft techniques with contemporary digital technology. In addition, Lisa has taught Brand Identity at the Accademia di Comunicazione in Milan for 8 years, as well as Accessories Design at IED (Istituto Europeo di Design) Milan and Rome. Presently, she is Professor of Accessories Design at NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti) Milan and conducts Textile Printing workshops at NABA and SIAM1838 (Società d’Incoraggiamento d’Arti e Mestieri).
