From 1998 till 2004 Caterina Fadda ran her own design and production with distribution to 20 countries. Her work received international recognition and was awarded several prizes, including the Peugeot design award, Sainsbury’s prize, 100% Design and the Westerwaldt preis.
The ambition of designing solely for mass manufacture materialized in 2004. Since then Caterina has completed several projects for leading brand manufacturers and department stores. For one year she also took on the challenge of running the product development for Gaia & Gino in Turkey.
Following several successful collaborations with furniture designer Fran Santos, in 2009 they set up the FaddaSantos partnership. The design office works on briefs from international leading manufacturers, department stores and cultural institutions.
