Piero Lissoni

Piero Lissoni (b. 1956) of Seregno, Italy originally studied architecture in Milan, but first worked as a designer for Molteni and Lema, and later as art director and designer for a well-known food manufacturer. In 1986 he founded his own studio with Nico Canesi that still employs many architects, designers and product designers. The company’s second office, called "Graph.x" opened in 1996. Lissoni is well known for designing the internal architecture of hotels, such as the Monaco & Grand Canal in Venice , and the Bentley design hotel in Istanbul. As a graphic designer, Lissoni designed the corporate identity of the fashion designer Elie Taharie. As a product designer, his leg chair "S44" is very well known.
The furniture manufacturers and entrepreneurs Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina founded Flos which became one of the leading Italian light manufacturers in the second half of the 20th century. Its origins lay in the energy of Arturo Eisenkeil who, in 1959, was seeking to find applications for a new, plastic-based material that he was importing to Italy from the United States. Called cocoon™, it was a spray-on plastic coating that Gavina and Cassina recognized as having potential for lighting design. From the outset, Flos established its reputation through its innovative lighting designs from Achille Castiglioni. The collaboration with Achille Castiglioni continued through the '90s, and in 1992 he introduced the "family of products" concept to the market with the Brera series. At the same time, Flos continued to scout for emerging talent at an international level. The first Philippe Starck lamp was produced in 1998, followed by the Miss Sissi lamp, Romeo Moon, and Archimoon series.
