biography

After completing his art studies and a period at the ISIA (Institute of Artistic Industries) in Florence, he worked at the Studio of Marcello Nizzoli and associates in Milan, as a design manager.
All his work is characterized by a methodological approach, a concrete, pragmatic attitude to projects, free from any conventionalism in terms of specialization or trends.
His studio operates in a variety of production sectors ranging from the design of aeronautical interiors to products for domestic or community environments, activating every possible design experience in a synergetic way.
His particular working method encompasses all the stages of the project and is closely linked to the marketing and communication aspects.
A characteristic of his work is the original systemic approach between the objects which involves all types of production sectors.
The formal superficiality of products is replaced with creative intensity; inteligent objects don't appear more as lonely entities, but strong in their vision of the "system" aimed at a real creative maker.
In over 35 years of professional activity he has worked with the most important Italian and international companies.
His work has been recognized by countless design publications, catalogues and magazines.
He has received considerable international recognition including the “National Mobile Fiera Competition” in Trieste, the Bayer Italia Special Award and the Abet Print Award.
His projects have also participated in some of the most important national and international shows.
Of particular significance is his “Mobile totale” at permanent exhibition of the MOMA (Museum of Modern Arts) in New York.
