Is there an iconic and collectible object which
made the history of design that you
would have liked to invent?
I would have liked to draw the
Arco of Achille Castiglioni lamp
that after fifty years has not
lost its freshness and original
innovation.

If you had to furnish a yacht
making it unique through the
decor and style, what would it be like?
Furnishing a yacht is exactly how to
think of a house in motion and therefore
it should represent its owner in the taste
and lifestyle. It has been the same method
I used when I have designed the interior
of “ La Regina d’Italia” owned by Dolce
& Gabbana, and I think that the style of the
shipowners transpire both in the furnishing
and in the way of living spaces.

What are the references and the language used
for your creations, what is the basis for your design
and who or what is it inspired by?
Personally the sources of inspiration of a project are
endless: an exhibition, a film, the cover of a CD, an
existing object, a person on the street, my personal
needs, etc. Certainly I think of those who will buy my
product because without a shop user my products do
not serve absolutely nothing; let us say that I exist
because people purchase my products . Furthermore I

often become the buyer of myself ... I think there is no
better verification: “ would I like to put this product
in my house or not?” “could I need it or not?” ....

My plans are aimed at asking similar questions.
