Davide Ronco is a Copenhagen based multidisciplinary artist and designer. After a bachelor in Industrial Design from the IUAV University in Venice, he developed a more emotional and sculptural approach obtaining a Master in Ceramic Design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He grounds his practice on material research and solid craftmanship within the field of experimental design and contemporary art. By challenging the praxis from the conventional tools and methodology, he creates sculptural objects and archetypal forms focusing on the study of perception and the dichotomy between Natural and Artificial. Whether with sculpture, furniture or site-specific installations, his diverse work revolves around found materials, unconventional methods and up-cycling processes.Davide works on different personal and commissioned projects.
