Born in Reggio Calabria of Sicilian parents, Alessandro La Spada moved to Milan where he got a diploma in Interior Design at the IDI’AC Interior Design Institute & Ateneo Creativo. He later taught ‘Furniture design’ at the same institute and at the Domus Academy.
But the passion, the emotional potential and the personality typical of his never-forgotten Mediterranean origins live on inside him and pervade all his creative vein.
Today, he is counted among the most brilliant storytellers of the Italian style, capable of creating ever-changing worlds. He can get inspired by whimsical exploits of characters that may be real or created by a likewise vivid imagination, or by a word whispered by a client not aware of being tracing the future path of his own company.
Eccentric and eclectic, La Spada has always been fascinated by the emotional aspect of objects.
Being a very skilled drawer, he has a predilection for the moulding of materials, and of steel above all. For this very reason he uses to define himself as a self-taught artist with an artisan attitude.
For the furniture industry, he designs unusual collections, imagines dreamlike atmospheres and projects artifacts that can tell their own story.
A vision more than a sign. The style and not mere exercises in style.
He collaborates with, among others, IPE Cavalli with the Visionnaire collection, Antolini, Besana, La Murrina, Longhi, Milldue, Smania Industria Italiana Mobili.
