Luca D’Elia, 27, founding partner of the newly established Tuma Studio. Graduated in Product Design at the European Design Institute in 2014. In 2019 he obtained a master's degree in Science in Product Design (course delivered in English) at the University of Rome Sapienza with a final mark 110/110 cum Laude and certification of path of excellence. He worked for several years with NACSound and the engineer Francesco Pellisari, who introduced him to the world of quality craftsmanship related to ceramics and woodworking. After a period spent in Cambridge during which he contributed to the design of a speaker in collaboration with the architect Ron Arad for Apple Inc. he returned to Italy where, during the course of master studies, he cultivated interest in manufacturing digital and 3D printing prototyping. This passion, and attention to modern humanitarian issues such as immigration and reception, resulted in a degree thesis that united digital fabrication and awareness on the subject of migrants in Italy, with particular attention to condition of children and their resilience, a thesis that earned them the right of publication.
