IDC designer of the week: Piero Lissoni

Born in Seregno in1956, Lissoni graduated in architecture in Milan in 1985. The following year he opened his own interior design and architecture studio. 
He has worked for many Italian design houses, not only in the field of product design but also in marketing; coordinating the brand image, managing communication campaigns as well as creating showrooms. He has recently been working on numerous projects for private homes and hotels for example in Venice (Monaco & Grand Canal), New York, Zurich, Istanbul and Bangkok. His designs are influenced by fifties and seventies chic and look as if they belong in a film by Frederico Fellini or even by Kubrick. His inspirations include the designs of designers such as the Danish Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjærholm and his sense of keen minimalism is derived from his affinity with the famous Milanese designers that came before him including the heyday of heroes Marco Zanuso, Ettore Sottsass, Achille Castiglioni, and Vico Magistretti.
