In 2009 she founded Sara Ferrari Design. Her work is already recognized internationally: the cardboard chair PAD was selected as a winning entry in the design competition PLAYING DESIGN and was later displayed at various fairs and institutions, the Dining Agenda was part of the Desigboom Mart at the ICFF in NY and was published in various national and international design magazines and blogs, whilst the XCIX_Y bracelet is displayed at the Peel Gallery, Texas. In April 2010 the project Stone-Leaf received a special mention from the international design competition Zanotta_Cristalplant Design contest.

I was lying on the beach in Nice, in the only day of holidays I had last summer, when Davide called me up. He got my contact from a mutual colleague and he was calling to see if we could set up a meeting to get to know each other and see if we could start collaborating. I liked this a lot. I think it's important to meet and to know people in person before starting any sort of work relationship, I always try to do it myself. When I arrived at the company's site, it was very easy for me to recognize the amazing experience and professionalism that the Barzaghi family has acquired over years of partnerships with the most important companies in the field. Starting a new adventure on his own was the best thing Davide could do, and being part of it couldn't be anything but a pleasure for me. The relationship between me, Davide and the other designers part of the project goes way beyond the average work dynamics. We are all around the same age and it's therefore quite easy for us to communicate, share ideas and team up. I also find the company's philosophy very interesting and, personally, I support the idea of using only 100% natural materials: a truly admirable sign of environmental sensibility in a time of dire nature and climate changes.
