Born in 1956, Piero Lissoni is an Italian architect, designer, and art director. Lissoni opened Lissoni Associati Studio in 1986 as a furniture company, bringing home close to many prominent Italian designers. His relations with designers from his studio caused him to also open up Graph.X, an Italian graphic design company, in 1996. Today, much of Lissoni’s greatest works are in the field of architecture and interior design. He has designed hotels from Amsterdam to Istanbul to Tokyo and even has worked on the interior design of million dollar yachts in New York. Lissoni’s versatility is what has made him the respected and talented designer he is today.
