Hello there! My name is Marisa Savegnago, this past spring I graduated from University of Illinois at Chicago with a bachelors degree in industrial design. Throughout my four years of studies I had the opportunity to study furniture design in Copenhagen Denmark, complete three different internships working for companies such as the International Housewares Association, Anthropologie and Wehrli Woodworks and I was also a student athlete and captain of University of Illinois at Chicago’s swim and dive team.
Some of my passions include creating and problem solving and I am always working on a new project. I have a passion for story telling through objects and believe that the back story to any object is important. I currently work as an independent contractor with a focus in Carpentry, along with being a volunteer coach for University of Illinois at Chicago.
