Kartell: 70 anni di continua ricerca e di dialogo con i grandi designers con l’obiettivo di perseguire la bellezza e la qualità assoluta.
Pietro Ferruccio Laviani was born in 1960 in Cremona, the city where he graduated in 1978 from the International Professional Institute for Violin Making and Wood Craftsmanship. In 1984 in Milan he obtained a diploma from the SPD Polytechnic School of Design led by Nino Di Salvatore, and then graduated in Architecture from the Polytechnic in 1986 following the courses of Marco Zanuso and Achille Castiglioni; with the latter in 1997 he organized the exhibition dedicated to Gio Ponti and Vico Magistretti for the Salone del Mobile. In Milan, after a fertile collaboration with Michele De Lucchi, of whom he became a partner for a few years, he opened his own design studio in 1991. He thus began an intense professional activity as a designer, graphic designer and architect, designing objects, commercial spaces, installations, offices and residential accommodation.
