Allison Vicenzi (1989 — ), an American born in St. Louis and raised in Norwalk, CT, is a designer, entrepreneur, and writer most notable for her exploration of connecting humans to nature and to each other through design and creative experiments. She spends a significant amount of time talking to people about their relationship to things and life itself.
With an eye for detail and a keen desire to celebrate the spirit of the times, Allison Vicenzi applied her scrappy nature and curiosity for hands-on making to launch the first commercially available circular clothing design (Blazer Nº1 by VICENZI, est. 2016). She previously ran the Education divisions for two leading 3D printing companies, and continues to work with schools creating design thinking and maker programs.
Ms. Vicenzi is now designing for systems to cultivate a culture of creative reuse and community repair. The more we use the things we have, the quicker we can restore wild nature.
Here are the people that mean the most to the designer.
