Born in Bergamo, Laura Polinoro graduated in Arts and Communication from the DAMS in Bologna. For a while, she worked in contemporary dance, supervising artists and coordinating costumes and sets. After this, she became a researcher at the Domus Academy.
Laura Polinoro was the leader of the Alessi Study Centre ("CSA") from 1990, working as a meta project designer and art director. Thanks to her, Alessi penetrated new and unknown fields. The "Family Follow Fiction" collection, the "Creole Memory Container" project and the "Biological" project are some of the main projects that she worked on as part of the CSA. (These projects were the origins of many further objects that are now part of the design collections at the MOMA in New York, the Groningen Museum in Groningen, the MAL in Frankfurt, the Museu d'Arts Décoratifs de Barcelona and the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich).
After the dissolution of the CSA in 2000, she founded the "Laura Polinoro Workshop", where she organised workshops with countless other designers, advising companies about innovative product design. The workshop projects that enter production are given the initials "LPWK".
