Born in Chicago, Felicia Ferrone studied architecture in the United States before beginning her career in Milan, apprenticing with some of today’s most influential architects and product designers where she was first taught to “blur boundaries”.
Her namesake brand fferrone is known for modern design of home accessories and furniture delivering the unexpected through a seemingly simple gesture and whimsy.
Archetypes are reinvented; typologies are crossed and blended. European influences, minimalist aesthetics, mastery of proportion, and meticulously considered details are the hallmarks of her work.
Often lighthearted and whimsical, the furniture and objects are timeless. Her internationally renowned Revolution Collection of glassware is part of The Art Institute of Chicago’s Permanent Collection and is a recipient of a Good Design Award.
She is the Director of Graduate Studies of Industrial Design and a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
In 2012 she presented Index mirror for Boffi.
