Event Details

Pierluigi is a designer and researcher who has been working at the intersection between industry and institutions creating innovative and engaging interactive products and media pieces.
In his artistic practice, Pierluigi devotes time to expand his understanding of the intersection between digital and physical materials, most of the time making images and reflecting about today's visual culture.

Pierluigi is a Cinema and Media Engineer by training, and, after having worked as a graphic programmer in the early days of post-pc devices, he pivoted towards interaction design, attending the Interaction Design Program at CIID, where he learned to craft experiences that mix digital, natural and tangible elements.

As a lead designer at NIO, he is bringing his creative point of view to explore new paradigms in human-computer interaction in the automotive space. Prior to NIO, Pierluigi had the chance to lead teams of researchers, artists and designers to create thought-provoking exhibitions, like the Museum of The Future Government Services commissioned by the Prime Minister Office of Dubai, or immersive installations like the award-winning experiential marketing campaign S7 The Imagination Machine.

Pierluigi is an active contributor to Processing and openFrameworks. tramontana and tramontanaCV are a couple of examples of open source tools he's made. Pierluigi wants to empower designers, artists, and technologists to prototype artifacts and experiences at scale. These tools are the building blocks of the classes of Interactive Spaces and Physical Computing he teaches at HyperIsland in Stockholm, Strelka Institute in Moscow and the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design.
