Piero Lissoni (1956 - ) is regarded as one of Italy’s most revered modern day designers. He began his career in 1978, got his degree in Architecture at the Milan Politechnic, and in 1985 started his collaboration with Boffi Kitchens as Art Director/Designer. Together with Nicoletta Canesi in Milan they found Lissoni Associati (1986) and Graph.x (1996) developing projects of industrial/graphic design, interior design and architecture, besides art direction and corporate affiliations. His impressive client roster includes: Alessi, Boffi, Cappellini, Cassina, Flos, Fritz Hansen, Glas Italia, Kartell, Lema, Living Divani, Matteograssi, Poltrona Frau, Porro, Tecno and Wella. In addition to the many Industrial and Graphic Design commitments that range from furniture, accessories, kitchens, bathrooms, lighting fixtures to corporate identity, signage and packaging, his scope of design also includes private residences and luxury hotels in Italy and abroad: the Monaco & Grand Canal in Venice (Italy), the Porto hotel by the Zurich Lake, the Bentley Design Hotel in Istanbul, the Garden Ginza business Hotel in Tokyo.
