CARLO LORENZETTI (1990-)
Carlo Lorenzetti (b. 1990 Chicago, IL) is a designer from Michigan, USA. His formative training in pottery was the basis for his undergraduate studies. He graduated from the University of Michigan School of Art & Design with a B.A in Fine Arts, in 2012. He studied ceramics and furniture design and focused his research on the relationship between digital fabrication with traditional craft techniques.
In 2015 he received an M.A from the Contextual Design department at Design Academy Eindhoven, where his research focused on themes of the subconscious. His focus shifted away from hybrid fabrication methods to user experience. His craft background was foundational in his exploration of domestic and primal archetypes. He looked at human behavior, researching themes of the subconscious mind and psychoanalysis, relating them to his design objects. Vessels and containers offer a physical and symbolic platform. He currently lives and works in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

In recent years, focus has shifted to manufacturing processes and materiality as a counterpoint to dematerialization and globalization. Underpinning the exhibition was the outcome of the research into materials and techniques. Some designs use old, forgotten materials and new techniques or technology to process them, while others are the result of an old craft but created with a new material.
