BA Furniture & Product Design

Mia Sgambati

I am deeply engaged in the craft of design and making, finding my element within the workshop environment. My ultimate objective is to create products that seamlessly blend into daily life, enriching it with elements of self-comfort or fostering effortless social connections.

Inspired by a fusion of minimalist and Japanese design, I aim to offer a unique aesthetic that emphasises simplicity, functionality, and tranquility.

This meticulously crafted chair embodies a fusion of form and function, offering a myriad of customisable seating arrangements to suit the unique ergonomic needs of every user. Rooted in the ethos of minimalist design, its contours seamlessly marry organic shapes with precise joinery, resulting in a visually striking yet inherently functional piece. Imbued with a sense of harmony, the chair integrates the timeless allure of oak wood with the tactile comfort of boucle upholstery, elevating any space with its understated elegance and ergonomic sophistication. It beckons individuals to recline and relax, enveloped in a cocoon of unparalleled comfort and aesthetic refinement.


Introducing OTTO, a captivating oil and vinegar pot set designed by Mia Sgambati to inspire family togetherness. Inspired by warm memories of gathering around the table, Sgambati envisioned OTTO as a focal point for shared enjoyment.

The design draws on the iconic Italian Moka pot, a cherished symbol of family traditions and welcoming guests. Its eight sides even inspired the name ?OTTO,? meaning ?eight? in Italian.

Sustainable and elegant, OTTO is crafted from ceramics and FSC-certified ash wood. Each pot is slip-casted, painted, and finished with a smooth, semi-matte glaze. A beautiful ash base, treated with a natural oil topcoat, securely holds the pots, creating a sophisticated yet functional centerpiece for your table.
