Let’s find out who these Italian rising talents are!
Marco Lavit Nicora
Marco Lavit founded his architecture and design practice, Atelier LAVIT, in 2014 together with Carlo Lavit. Since then, the practice has been active in France and Italy. Atelier LAVIT’s work originates from the dialogue with artisans and their savoir-faire, especially Made in Italy. Architecture and design often proceed in parallel, striving to reach essential forms. This approach results in an extemporal production, which does not follow trends, but rather lets the strength of raw materials speak for the designs themselves.
After gaining a Master’s degree in Industrial Design at the Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan in 1999, Kensaku Oshiro began working with various studios until 2004, when he joined the design team at Lissoni Associati where he worked until mid-2012. Kensaku Oshiro works with Boffi, DePadova, Frag, Gan, Glas Italia, Kristalia, Ligne Roset, Poltrona Frau, Viccarbe and Zanotta.
After finishing his studies in Milan, Guglielmo Poletti (1987) did a Master in Contextual Design at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, where he currently lives. “Like many other designers who graduated from this school, his work is strongly influenced by an experimental approach,” explained uber-famous contemporary design icon Rossana Orlandi, who nominated Poletti.
Federico Peri is a Milan based interior design practice. The projects range from retail concept, commercial spaces, private homes to furniture design. The design process is driven by a consistent philosophical approach by which the studio creates a concept that is intimately connected to their function and individual context.
Currently, Federica Biasi became art director of the Italian company Mingardo. Meanwhile, she collaborates as a creative consultant with design companies as Fratelli Guzzini, focusing on worldwide trends research and forecasting: color, material & finishing, carefully analyzing the know-how of every company she’s collaborating with.
Antonio Facco‘s works have been exhibited at the Fuorisalone in Milan and, immediately after his degree in Interior Design, he started to collaborate with Cappellini for installations, interior projects, and visual communications. The most intimate root of his work can be found in his curiosity and transversal interests. His aesthetics can be summarised as an attentive debate between a formal impulsiveness and the research on the limits of materials and the application of new technologies.
