Fabio Di Bartolomei was born in Udine, the town in which he still lives.
In 1979 Di Bartolomei set up his own studio in Udine (Italy) and later established international contacts which led to the opening of satellite offices in NewYork (USA) and Brendale Brisbane Qld (AU).
The primary subjects of his creative thought, to which he gives great importance, are the daily needs of each individual in relation to his habitat. With this in mind, Di Bartolomei starts his research for the right balance between image and functionality. The expression of this can also be seen in his design works which he believes must always suit the functions for which they were intended. He feels that in a project, beauty, though important, it is not the main purpose of a designer’s expression. First of all, he should conceptualise and then create objects for living.
Di Bartolomei is involved in: Industrial Design, design of exhibitions, planning of buildings, Interior Design.
Some of his works have also been selected and exhibited in museums like:
"The Museum of Modern Art" the MoMa of New York in the exhibition of "Mutant materials in contemporary design"
"The Cornig Museum of Glass" di Cornig-NY (USA).
