After graduating in Architecture and finishing his Master in Product Design, Bernabei started working in important design studios in Milan. He moved to Spain, where he opened his own studio and applying his aesthetic vision for private spaces, and contract projects. As art director for international brands he designed retail projects for commercial spaces. At the same time he collaborates with artisans designing limited editions, such as the Character collection: a series of wicker lamps for Bottega Intreccio which have been awarded the prestigious Wallpaper Design Award 2018. The constant goal is to communicate a pure and strong concept, and then shape it into an object or into an environment, imagining to revolutionise the everyday experience: to make the actors of a space live in emotional harmony with materials, objects and light.
