Federico Grazzini graduated in Architecture at the University of Florence in 1998; he then moved to London, starting out as a 3d modeling and visualisation expert for Virtual Artworks. He joined Alsop Architects in 1999, getting involved with a wide range of projects, from architecture, product and furniture design to masterplanning, and also in a number of international competitions.
He helped developing the Alsop range of products and furniture, most notably for Alessi on the tea and coffee towers project in 2003.
