Originally from Poland, I was inspired to set my business in Modena 2018 after winning the EU competition for young designers. Around that time I also co-founded coworking Studio Loom. Its space is also my studio, where I design and hand make all of my tableware, home decor and porcelain jewellery. I also take commissions and teach.

Ma.Ni. Photo Studio

Member: Lavinia Nitu

“I’m a photographer living in Modena.
I was born in Bucharest, Romania. There, I studied Economics at university, and photography in my father’s darkroom, where I would sneak in to watch the film carefully transform into prints.
But Economics was not for me so I started studying Photography and specialized in Documentary Photography.
