Massimiliano Locatelli - Editions
An anthology featuring a selection of furniture and lamps designed over the years by architect and designer Massimiliano Locatelli.
Massimiliano Locatelli (born 1967 in Milan) is an architect and designer. He studied architecture at the Milan Polytechnic and obtained his PhD with Kenneth Frampton at Columbia University in New York. He is a founding partner of Locatelli Partners. He designs in the most varied contexts: private homes, showrooms, retail, exhibition set-ups and new building construction. His oeuvre includes numerous competitions and participation in exhibitions and Biennali: the restoration and functional redesign of the historical complex Piazza XXV Aprile (Porta Garibaldi) banned by the Municipality of Milan; the 9th Venice Architecture Biennale in the Metamorph News from the inside section; the exhibition "The Mobile Landscape of New Italian Design" at the Museum of La Triennale and he is the creative director of installation design for the Fontana Arte exhibition, "Vivere nel Vetro / House of Glass" at the Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice. Since 2012, his work on custom furnishings, which are usually created for site-specific projects, has become its own independent collection of furniture and design that continues its dialogue with research. The development of architectural materials and the future of construction led him to design "3D Housing 05", the first 3D printed concrete house which earned him the Best Sustainability award at the 2018 Milan Design Week.
