A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Julie Morringello trained as both an industrial designer and furniture designer/maker. Julie has worked simultaneously in both fields for many years, building fine furniture and sculpture in her fully equipped studio while also designing products for manufacture.
In 2011 she decided to merge her diverse skills to create Modernmaine, a company focused on the creation of contemporary artist-made lighting.
Julie’s work blends her knowledge of functional design and manufacturing processes with a love of materials, self-expression and expert craftmanship.
Everything at Modernmaine is created in her studio on Deer Isle and necessary components are sourced as close to home as possible.
