Behind designing products
A passion for pure forms, elegance, and materials.
I designed an immense range of successful products for the most prestigious brands. I’m a builder of dreams for living, work, and leisure.
My projects have been exhibited in Paris, at the Weserburg Museum of Modern Art in Bremen (1995), at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Cologne (1996), and at the Milan Triennale (2016), and at MARCA, Museum of the Arts of Catanzaro (2017).
Since 2011 I have been teaching design at the University of Beijing. In 2013 I founded A++ architecture studio with Paolo Colombo in Lugano, which deals with interiors and large-scale projects all over the world, with studios in Lugano, Zurich, New York, Miami, and Dubai.
On my path, there is a fascination with manufacturing, respect for those who produce, and for those who accompany the process of design as a concept and a physical reality. Apart from being my professional occupation, design is my life story in which curiosity and passion are inseparably entwined with skill and competence.
