Architect and designer Piero Lissoni approaches his work with a mastery of proportion and an acute sensitivity for the subtlety that distinguishes the common from the insightful, never designing for a specific function or purpose, but designing for human beings.

Lissoni began his career in 1978 having gained his architecture degree at the Milan Polytechnic and in 1985 started with Boffi Kitchens as Art Director & Designer. With Nicoletta Canesi he founded the architectural firm Lissoni Associates in Milan in 1986, and ten years later lent his vision to graphic design company Graph.x.

Lissoni’s projects are often total designs, meaning, full-scale interiors and architecture of offices and showrooms, yachts, private homes, and hotels. In recent years, he has designed luxury hotels such as the Monaco & Grand Canal in Venice, the Al Porto hotel on Lake Zurich, the Bentley Design Hotel in Istanbul, and the Mitsui Garden Ginza Hotel in Tokyo, a luxurious resort in Miami and a resort in collaboration with other architects at the Turks & Caicos Islands, to name a few.

Among its clients the studio counts Alessi, Boffi, CappelliniCassina, Desalto, Fantini, Flos, Fritz Hansen, Glas Italia, Kartell, Knoll, Lema, Living Divani, Lualdi, Matteograssi, Porro and Tecno.
