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. Tellurico lives and works in the Netherlands.
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 Under 40. In 2021 Tellurico won the prestigious Officine Saffi Awards with his project Telluride and in 2022 has been listed among the Next Pure Talent of 2022 by Elle Decor and in 2023 become part of the AD20 List of the New Italian Rising Talent from AD-Italia.
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. Museum in Naples, Triennale di Milano, Brøhån Museum in Berlin, Beirut Design Fair, Italian Pavilion in Barcelona, Zoya Gallery in Bratislava and others. He works closely with cultural institutions, private collectors and received commissions from differents galleries such as Emma Scully Gallery New York, Side-Gallery in Barcelona, and of corse Mint London.
