After receiving his degree in architecture from the Milan Polytecnic, Piero Lissoni worked as a furniture designer before founding his own studio in 1986, specializing in architecture, interior and graphic design. He has collaborated with Boffi Cucine, Living Divani, Mateograssi and Kartell, and worked on a number of architecture projects in Japan, with design projects that have included a shopping center, an art gallery, a Cordon Bleu cooking school, logos and trademarks. His awards include the 1991 Esprit kitchen design and the Compasso dOro design prize. He has also received the Chicago Athenaeum 2002 Good Design Award for this collection.
Piero Lissonis design principle is never to design for a specific function or purpose - but to design for human beings.
