My research and inspiration comes from food, its history and culture. Each piece that I work on represents a focus on the experience that that piece should generate, it is very much an approach that must be experienced with all the senses | My work ranges from Product Design to Exhibition, taking care of each step from the creation of contents to the styling of the pictures and the graphic communication | Mostly produced in limited editions, my projects are manufactured along with expert artisans | The clients I work with are privates, Art and Design Galleries, Italian and International brands and a range of exclusive bars and restaurants.

Italian designer Astrid Luglio was born in Naples in 1988. She studied at NABA—the New Academy of Fine Arts—in Milan, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Product Design. Traveling has been part of her education, after the studies Astrid moved to Melbourne, Australia where she freelanced for local clients and had a brief experience of three months in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Upon returning to Italy the following year, she began working with Milan-based TourDeFork, a design studio inspired by food and culinary culture. In 2018, she founded her own independent studio and continues to work with clients in Milan, as well as Oslo and Naples. Astrid is also part of an ongoing collective, called The Ladies' Room, with fellow designers Ilaria Bianchi, Agustina Bottoni, and Sara Ricciardi. Together they have started a reflection on contemporary design, through the creation of artifacts and experiences that investigate the renewed need for a sensory involvement.
