Matteo Fogale is a London-based designer specialising in furniture and product design as well as interiors, installations, creative and strategic consultancy.
Led by a design approach that considers honest and premium materials, functionality and longevity of the product, Matteo’s work is a combination of everyday objects reinterpreted with a strong iconic character.
Matteo was born in Montevideo (Uruguay) and moved to Italy in 2001. He studied first at the Art School Leonardo da Vinci followed by IUAV University of Venice. After graduating he worked on a wide variety of projects, from high-end furniture design, industrial product design and bespoke commission pieces with design studios such as Patricia Urquiola, Nichetto and Partners, Barber & Osgerby and MAP Project Office.
In 2013 he established his own brand brose~fogale in collaboration with designer Joscha Brose, designing, producing and distributing the Camerino Collection. In September 2014 he launched a new collection of furniture and products in collaboration with the designer Laetitia de Allegri during the London Design Festival which was awarded a Wallpaper* Design Award in 2015.
Since 2018 Matteo has expanded his ever-growing body of work with a series of new collaborations including an exhibition and collection of furniture pieces designed together with seven Uruguayan design studios and launched at The Aram Gallery in London.
