Based in Paris, Raffaella Loï is a designer from a Franco-Italian family. She grew up surrounded by manual labourers and craftsmen, immersed in Italian culture from which she draws her inspiration. Early on she became interested in the family business: marble.
She developed her designs in the family marble workshop. This noble material, filled with immeasurable shades and colours, encouraged her to recycle scraps and offcuts and continues to feed her creativity today: Upcycling, a sustainable development approach in which unused materials are recovered in order to transform and sublimate them, becomes a key element of her work.
Her collections, made up of unique pieces in limited editions.
Her creations, a blend of art and design.
Raffaella's work reveals her sense for contrasted and balanced compositions that enhance the value of the material.
I'm definitely inspired by contrasts and colours I find in Nature, Cities, Arts, Architecture...
Geometrical, Colorful, and Sensitive
A lot of Artists who works with forms and colours such as Ettore Sottsass, Ricardo Bofill, Julio le Parc, Vasarely, Luis Barragán, James Turell...
I like to go to exhibitions and museums, and I like to travel to discover different cultures!
