Although still relatively unknown, Robby Canta looks set to become one of the furniture-design world's rising stars. The Italian designer from Emilia-Romagna has already begun to make his mark with contemporary pieces that make aesthetic and functional use of modern materials.
After graduating in 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts in Design and Art, Canta left his homeland in search of inspiration and practice abroad. In Germany and Spain he experimented with a variety of materials and techniques before really turning his attention to thermoplastics. Canta returned home to Italy with a new focus on modern furniture design. Commercial success now beckons.
