Lisa Allegra is an artist and designer who thinks, draws and forms objects that inhabit our daily lives: lighting, furniture, vases etc.
She approaches the form by drawing but also through the manual shaping of the clay.

This allows her to imagine a variety of pieces ranging from vases to dining tables and even architectural elements.
Her creations are designed in collections and in variations. These families of objects play with balance: legs rising from the ground, a cushion in suspension, a large dome resting on slender leg.
The elements touch, and support each other.
She is attentive to “the presence of absence”, of emptiness and counter-form.
John Pawson, Donald Judd and Rachel Whiteread are among her most inspiring creators, with their search for the essential and purity.
Lisa Allegra aims to create forms that are both minimalist and warm: using clay, rounded shapes in association with other materials such as textiles and wood.

This choice to link her profession as a designer with all these skills allows her to logically create small hand made series, durable pieces, of which she masters both form and production.
She collaborates with brands and partners such as Cartier, Hermes, Galerie Philia, Chiara Colombini, Caroline Andreoni, The Webster, Sessun…
