She was design editor for Abitare magazine (2011-2013), is currently writing for Italian and international design magazines, and curated the editorial project for Icon Design magazine (Mondadori, 2015), where she continues to work as contents consultant. She recently curated the 2015 edition of Operae, the independent design festival based in Turin, under the title “HERE/NOW. Under Present Effect”. Rui has a particular fondness for the humanistic aspect of design: with “Meeting Mirabilia” she managed a series of live interviews from the studios of LiveOn4G (Telecom) to discuss the use of poetry, dreams, uncertainty, nature, and desire as new platforms for design (2014). For the Triennale Design Museum she curated the exhibition and catalogue “Ugo la Pietra. Disequilibrating Design” (2014), and for the Milan Design Film Festival (2014) co-wrote the short film “Seven Billions”, dedicated to the poetics of Andrea Branzi. She is passionate about the design counterculture, she taught at the School of Design (Politecnico di Milano) until 2015 and she is training future designers enrolled in the Master of Interior Design program at NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan.
