Guglielmo Poletti (1987) is an Italian designer, currently based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. After the first studies in Milan, he earned an MA in Contextual Design at Design Academy Eindhoven, where he graduated in June 2016. Since the very beginning Poletti has developed a clear, yet truly personal language. His practice is deeply rooted in a hands-on investigation of materials and their limits, in relation to the notions of balance and fragility. His simple structures and elementary constructions stand as metaphors of defeated complexity, built around the manipulation of unconventional details. Subtle gestures allow him to achieve a deeper impact, by deconstructing an image and then restoring it with the smallest intervention.
