Marialaura Rossiello Irvine
Born on the slopes of Vesuvius, Marialaura Rossiello graduated in architecture in Naples under Riccardo Dalisi. From the poetry of design and a deep respect for tradition and history, in 2000 she was catapulted into the capital of Italian design for a master in strategic design at the Politecnico.
Concreteness became a challenge, marketing, communication and strategy the keynote.
For a number of years she collaborated with Italian design brands, and grew accustomed to consider the product within a comprehensive corporate process.
Then, after meeting James Irvine, she moved on tiptoe into a different, British atmosphere.
In 2011 she became partner of his firm, where industrial products were the throbbing heart of design. Today she runs Studio Irvine working with clients such as Muji, Offecct, Amorim, Phaidon, Matteo Brioni.
