After graduating with the Master of Contextual Design at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, in 2017 Francesco Pace founded Tellurico, a multidisciplinary design studio specialised in objects, spaces and installations design.
The investigation of alternative solutions through the study of folklore, together with the relationship between crafts and the environment has been the centre of Tellurico’s practice.
The context in which a project is born has been the primary focus of these years\' research. What binds the objects of a place to the characteristic of the place itself intertwines the historical, geological and social aspects of humankind, as well as the uniqueness and simplicity of everyday life. It is an always expanding field of investigation, as endless are the ways to live.
In 2020 Tellurico has been nominated by Platform Magazine among the Best Italian Designers.
In 2021 Tellurico won the prestigious Officine Saffi Awards with his project Telluride
So far, Tellurico’s works have been presented in many international venues such as the Biennale of Architecture in Venice, Van AbbeMuseum in Eindhoven, M.A.D.RE. in Naples, Triennale di Milano, Brohan Museum in Berlin, Beirut Design Fair, Italian Pavilion in Barcelona, Zoya Gallery in Bratislava and others. He works closely with private clients and received commissions from different galleries such as Palau de Casavells in Barcelona, Mint London, Camp Design Gallery and Functional Art Gallery in Madrid.
Tellurico lives and works in the Netherlands.
