Design without limits

Pier Luca Freschi

The industrial design studio has opened in Imola. After an experience in Milan at different product design studios, Pier Luca Freschi, after taking a diploma in Car design in Turin, started the professional experience linked to the design of industrial products.
Imola is a work area and experience in mechanical machining and the first works are planned in the large-scale retail sector. The materials and technologies, which were developing in that period in other industries, are proposed by the studio for the manufacturing of products that have long been linked to ferrous materials. Then Pier Luca Freschi started a small revolution in the design field, innovating, showing and knowing a new product reality that will then also be used by other foreign companies.
In the mid-90s, it diversified its design commitment into other sectors: jewellery, medical and zootechnics, while the 2000s began with a large project of an indoor kart track with a series of services inside, alongside an architecture studio as an exterior and interior designer.
In these two decades, the studio designs in other industrial realities, such as street furniture, display systems for shops and exteriors, door opening and control systems, mechanical and automatic entrance keys for the house, coffee services, presses and steel vats for winemaking and finally industrial welding machines and balancers.
