After graduating at 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.

The investigation of alternative solutions through the study of folklore, together the relationship between craft and the environment has been always the centre of the Tellurico’s practice. What binds the objects of one place to the characteristic of the place itself intertwines the historical, geological and social aspects of humanity as well as the uniqueness and simplicity of every-day 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, M.A.D.RE. in Naples, Triennale di Milano, Brohan Museum in Berlin, Beirut Design Fair, Italian Pavilion in Barcelona, Bratislava Design Week. He received different commissions from galleries such SideGallery / Casavells in Barcelona, Galleria Salvatore Lanteri in Milan and Mint Gallery in London and Functional Art Gallery in Madrid.

Tellurico is currently based in the Netherlands.
