Matteo Ugolini was born in Pesaro (Italy) 1973. Ever since he was very young he showed great passion for drawing and painting and makes practice of his creativity working with different kinds of materials. When he was 19 years old he starts attending C.N.I.P.A., University of design based in Ancona and as soon as he finishes his studies he starts a collaboration with Studio Telemaco, in Pesaro where he deals with architecture and design developing several design projects of different kinds of furniture pieces and home accessories. 2008 he becomes Art Director of the company Karman and designs for it his first lighting collections: they have a very simple style and created by plain lines and choosing natural colours and all that gave a great identity to the brand Karman. Among his products we can mention Deja-Vu and Ali&Babà and the introduction in 2012 of a special indoor + outdoor collection in fibreglass: Alibabig. At next Euroluce 2013 Ugolini introduces 10 new models and all of them bear a strong touch of “reminiscence”. His main goal is to thrill and cause emotion through lighting: as a matter of fact his main inspiration is taken from the past and from objects belonging to our tradition and imagination and for sure Nature, seen in a very emotional and ironical way.
