Born in Salta, Argentina, in 1975, Francisco Gomez Paz graduated with a degree in Industrial Design from the Universidad Nacional de Cordoba. In 1998, he relocated to Milan, Italy, where he pursued a Master’s degree in Design at Domus Academy.

In 2004, he established his design studio in Milan, and since then, he has created products for renowned design companies like Artemide, Driade, Danese, Landscape Forms, Lensvelt, Luceplan, Olivetti, and Sector, among others. Francisco approaches design with a strong emphasis on curiosity, technological knowledge, materials, and an experimental, hands-on creative process.

He was also honored with the First Prize of the Index Award for the Solar Bottle, which is part of the MOMA’s Study Collection.
