About

Her 3 years of training as a goldsmith offered the ideal base for Sara Mellone's studies in Applied Art and Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf. After graduating in 2013 she worked in different design studios such as Harry Thaler Studio. At the same time she founded her own design studio Sara Mellone Design which got recently nominated for the German Design Award, Newcomer 2016. Sara´s approach to design focuses on the simplicity and longevity of the product, by using materials that work in harmony with the design. Though all her products are minimalistic, she always keeps the poetic character of a piece, maintaining the sense of narrative and expression.
