Trained as an architect, Cesare Griffa is now a designer who spends most of his time creating works that explore the intricate love affair that binds humankind to our planet.
His work focuses mainly on the use of organic matter, such as micro-algae, leather, wood, charcoal, oil, and wax, to create objects, installations, and spaces that sometimes have a clear functional use, and other times have an evanescent nature.
He gained his experience working for big architectural firms such as Zaha Hadid Architect, Arata Isozaki, ARUP, and ArchA, and has taught at the Politecnico di Torino, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Istituto Europeo del Design (IED), and Domus Academy.
His is an exploration of territories haunted by human spirits searching for the magic of existence, the meaning of life, and sparks of possible futures.
