Giusi Mastro is fluent in the traditions, richness, and daring of Italian Architecture and Design. She was born in Puglia, Italy, in a family of ceramists and she moved to Florence in 1976. At the University of Florence she received a Degree in Architecture and she taught Interior Architecture (1986-1994). During the same years she worked as Lighting Designer at Targetti (1986-1988) and she founded Giusi Mastro Architecture (1988-1994). Also in the ‘80s, a magical time for Italian design, she became one of the founders of the Bolidismo, a movement born from the desire to incorporate the feeling of movement inside design and from the fascination for Futurism and the American streamline.
Giusi Mastro moved to NYC in 1995 where, after having worked as a Senior Designer at Sanba Design + Development, she founded ORA Studio NYC in 2001. Discover more about ORA Studio NYC on www.orastudionyc.com
