“I am a humanist. To me, a chair is just as important as a tower.”
- Piero Lissoni
The products of the Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni (* 1956) are all objects of desire: He has a number of timeless, modern private villas designed, set up sophisticated hotel, designed incredibly elegant yachts and uncompromisingly clear furniture, kitchens, bathrooms and objects for business such as Alessi, Boffi, Cassina, Flos, Fritz Hansen, Kartell, Knoll, Living Divani, and Tecno Thonet developed. “In the Milanese tradition first one is an architect, then it is also an engineer or designer. You will be able to design a spoon but also a whole city,” said the great artist.
Lissoni sensual minimalism requires quality materials, perfectly crafted details and excellent feel. This is also reflected in this monograph to his architectural and design work that was put together by Lissoni.
