Andrea Balzano

Andrea Balzano

My name is Andrea Balzano and after having done work experience at various design studios I decided to focus on the development of my own projects. I thought that the best way to start was to take part in a few well-organised online contests and the one proposed by Mirage was one of the first I noticed, one that I found thanks to the "Contest Watchers" website.
I immediately realised it was a contest to be taken seriously, after reading the specific and detailed requests and realising that the time scale allocated was long enough to be able to complete a worthy project. Working on “ceramic tiles” that, at first site could seem like bi-dimensional elements but that can be turned into interesting 3D effect thanks to the advanced production technology of porcelain stoneware, has been a particularly stimulating experience for me.
