Italy at it’s best through the eyes, projects, vision and ideas of award-winning Piero Lissoni, the internationally known architect and designer with a vision for spaces, ambiances and time. Through his works we will see the developing world of architecture in Italy and in the world reflected in his hospitality projects, furniture designs and futuristic ideas.
Piero Lissoniwas born in 1956 and is one of Italy’s golden boys. He is a world-famousarchitect and designer who graduated in 1978 from the very prestigious Politecnico di Milano. In 1986 He opens Lissoni Associates with Nicoletta Canesi and ever since that he has lead groundbreaking projects. Today his studio is made of a staff of over 60 people and has projects that cover all design fields such as architecture, interiors, industrial design and graphic project.
Piero Lissoni has been one of the chosen architects to be involved in many extremely exclusive projects. Ritz-Carlton referred to him for the project of their residences in Miami.
The Mandarin Oriental added him to the stardom of architects that worked on the Dellis Cay project, an ultra-exclusive hospitality facility based in Turks and Caicos, where he was joined by other world-known names such as Shigeru Ban, David Chipperfield, Carl Ettensperger, Zaha Hadid, Kengo Kuma and Chad Oppenheim.
Lissoni was in charge of designing different Beach and Ocean view villas that combined with the other projects populate the isolated island of Dellis Cay, making it an extra luxurious retreat of unique design.
Thanks to Lissoni;s fresh and simple style many projects have met the consent of the general public. One such example is the Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam, well known for being a local attraction due to its modern design and comfortable living spaces.

BIOPHILIA & CREATIVITY
Piero Lissoni is the example of a man who always thinks outside the box, who stretches the limits and breaks the boundaries of materials. In his Giardino Geometrico or Geometric Garden project, presented at the prestigious Salone del Mobile in 2014, he mastered the blend between nature and geometrical structures. In collaboration with Living Divani and Laminam, he created a space where people can enjoy nature and design together, in the most wonderful historical Milanese area of Brera, specifically within its Botanical Garden.
Biophilia is the love for all things living and the key to biophilia design, such a trend when it comes to interior design. This idea has health, environmental, and economic benefits, and although its name was coined in recent history, indicators of biophilia design have been seen in architecture from as far back as the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
The appearance of the natural world, with its rich diversity of shapes, colors, and life, is universally appreciated and brings you several benefits, such as:
– Reduces stress levels
– Increases productivity
– Reduces sick days
– Makes workplaces more attractive
– Reduces pollution and cleans the air by reducing noise levels
– Boosts creativity levels
Biophilic design, however, must be implemented correctly to optimize health benefits and potential monetary savings. Here you have the good practices to achieve a nice and beneficial ambiance:
Natural Environment – Features of the natural world that are incorporated into an office setting. Basic things like earthy colors, sunlight, plants, images of animals and nature.
Natural Shapes – Lines, shapes, and forms that occur in nature (arches and vaults, recreating rock shelves, water paths).
