After graduating with the Master of Contextual Design at 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.
So far, Tellurico’s works have been presented in many international venues such as Biennale
of Architecture in Venice, Van AbbeMuseum in Eindhoven, M.A.D.RE. in Naples, Triennale di
Milano, Bröhan 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 Side-Gallery in Barcelona, Mint London, Camp
Design Gallery and Functional Art Gallery in Madrid.
In 2020 Tellurico has been nominated by Platform Magazine among the Best Italian
Designers of 2020.
Tellurico lives and works in the Netherlands.
