“Nothing is created nor destroyed but everything is transformed.” – Antoine Lavoisier
Laviosier’s motto is the source of inspiration for Ludovica Cirillo, to take design challenges in the name of creativity and in the service of ecology.
Ludovica, who in July 2014 gained a BA(hons) degree in Architecture at the Cass, London Metropolitan University, is passionate in cultivating the concept of reuse in her professional future as an architect.
She is currently studying at the AA for her part II.
She started to experiment with reused materials since she was a child. The desire to use her hands to invent new creations, gave her the impulse to realize a recycled jewellery brand, ByLudo. Her first experiment transformed a drawer full of earphones, electric cables or obsolete keyboards from personal computers into unique and original bijoux. These pieces came to have a second life: first of all being useful, then in dis-use, and last they become ornamental and artistic objects. In 2009 her first collection of Ecotech-bijoux was born followed by Eco-Joux, her first showing in Rome.
Her passion for technologic and reused materials has arisen in a really spontaneous way considering the era where we are living. This is why her designs take its creative inspiration from the environmental practice of reuse, a concept particularly important in today’s wasteful consumerist society.
Her creativity continued to evolve in the architectural field designing The Orange trailer, a project realized with reclaimed materials and founded by the Friends of Abbey garden, Stratford. The Orange trailer was prized for 2nd Year Work Live Projects and Entrepreneurial Character Award awarded by North West London Society of Architects (NWLSA) RIBA London Branch, November 2013.
Now she engages herself working with Pardini Hall exploring their creative and dynamic approach towards architecture and the environment.
