ABOUT

FILIPPO PROTASONI

Born 1980, studied in Italy and Norway. During his university years he delved into product and interior design, developing a distinctive methodology, which he applied on different project scales: in 2004 he won a challenge held by Politecnico di Milano and exhibited for the first time at the Salone del Mobile with Piu Yiu on a cooperative installation with Sawaya & Moroni.

In 2006 he graduated at Politecnico di Milano; after different assignments in international studios (Emmanuel Babled, Markusbeneschcreates), he opened his own practice in Milan in 2009.

His research provides a rational attitude, but focused on emotional perspectives. He designs lighting, furniture, industrial and textile products, commercial spaces, interiors and exhibits.

Interni Magazine, AD-Architectural Digest and Elle Decor Japan described him as one of the most promising young Italian designers.

In 2014 the museum Triennale di Milano listed him in the Nazionale Italiana Design.

His works achieved national and international design prizes and have been published on the main design and lifestyle media.

From 2011 to 2013 was a member of ADI permanent Observatory for Design.

Since 2007, he holds lectures in Italy (IED Istituto Europeo di Design, NABA Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano, Domus Academy) and abroad (Design Institute Amman).
