Hagit Pincovici founded her eponymous bespoke luxury furniture and lighting atelier in 2014. Known in her earlier work for a rich color and material palette, and a devotion to the geometric forms found in modern art, Hagit has established her practice as one of the foremost among her generation of designers. Since 2019, Hagit has turned her attention to nature, inspired by the botanical forms and striking landscape of her native Israel. Materiality has always played a strong role, from an initial focus on marble, brass and lacquer to a more recent exploration of sandstone and cast aluminum. Her signature clean lines balance out these ‘softer’ materials, highlighting the relationship between the experimental and functional found throughout her oeuvre. For each handmade piece, Hagit collaborates personally and directly with a family of artisans in the heart of the furniture district of Brianza, outside Milan.
Hagit is a graduate of Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem and Domus Academy in Milan. Her collectible designs are sold by The Future Perfect and she is represented by Dimore Gallery, and she has exhibited work at the Triennale in Milan. She has designed furniture for leading Italian design brands such as Baxter, work for whom she won a Wallpaper* Design Award in 2019. Hagit’s work has been featured in Interni, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Elle Decor, Abitare, Frame, Domus, Interior Design and more.
Hagit was born in Tel Aviv, Israel and now resides in Milan and New York.
