Piero Lissoni is a uniquely talented Italian artist, art director, designer and architect. In 1986, he partnered with designer Nicoletta Canesi to open Lissoni Associati, an interdisciplinary studio with a focus on contemporary design in architecture, interiors and lighting. Lissoni has also collaborated on products for dozens of prestigious brands, among them Cappellini, B&B Italia, Gallo and Olivari. Clean and modern, with a focus on industrial design and sophisticated architectural elements, Lissoni's style is characterized by purity and elegance. His global reputation is reflected in many international awards, along with his induction into the New York Interior Design Hall of Fame. Lissoni enjoys incorporating interesting materials into his work, such as pairing stainless steel and rustic wood or re-using slabs of marble from famous buildings. Miami’s Ritz Carlton residences are an example of his comprehensive interior work; the unique PIUMA chair for Kartell, an ultra-light technopolymer chair created with injection molding techniques, shows his flair for individual furniture pieces on a smaller scale. In 1996, to further expand its range of expertise, Lissoni Associati added Graph.x, an agency dedicated to branding, logos and graphic design; they have created logos for Domus Academy Milan, Kerakoll Design House and Alpi, among many others. Since 2007, Lissoni has managed corporate identity for the prestigious Venice Biennale International Film Festival. The items Lissoni Associati offers show a very wide range: armchairs, armless chairs, lounge chairs, dining chairs, modern coffee tables, bookcases, sofas, sectional and convertible sofas, modular sofas, outdoor sofas, nightstands, dining tables, desks, contemporary chaise lounges, wall decor, doors, lighting and much more. Lissoni's catalog also includes kitchen islands, full kitchens, watches, dishware, wardrobes, tubs, and coffee makers. From single pieces to full-scale design for private homes, Lissoni's design is represented worldwide in villas, yachts, high-end hotels, offices, restaurants and more.
