Meet a Fabricante #11 – Daniel Rous

Daniel comes from the UK and is a product designer in our Design team. He’s already had the opportunity to design a furnishing accessories collection presented at Milan Design Week 2016. If you wish to know him better, you should read the interview below!


Can you describe in no more than 30 words who you are and what you do?
Hello, I am a product designer from the UK, shifting between objects, interiors and editions.

What do you expect from your time at Fabrica?
Many challenges, collaborations with all types of creatives from around the world, growth, opportunity, surprises.

What inspires you most?
Travelling, for me has to be the best way to take inspiration. Opening your eyes to a new environment, seeing new colours, buildings, people. I recently was given a 20+ year old analogue camera so I’m enjoying exploring landscapes through the lens.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
“Find a fire and keep it going”.

What do you miss of your home and what do you like of Italy?
Surprisingly, I miss the cold climate of the UK, during the hot, humid, summers here a cold crisp English breeze would be so refreshing. Saying that, I like the heat, only sometimes it can be unbearable.
