Claudio Bellini
Claudio Bellini

He is an Italian architect and designer (born 1963) based in Milan. His activities range from architecture and urban planning to product, office and furniture design for Italian and international companies. In 1990 he graduated from the Politecnico di Milano where he received a Degree in Architecture and Industrial Design. Immediately after his studies, he started to work very close with Mario Bellini Associates where he embarked on a series of international experiences, taking part in research projects in the fields of architecture, industrial and furniture design. In 1998 Claudio Bellini introduces a completely new vision in the contemporary office landscape with his revolutionary design of TW collection for Frezza. His expertise in office furniture as well as his collaboration with well known international companies (Steelcase, Vitra, Haworth, Tecno, etc.) make him one of the most influential designers today. In 1996 along with his father he founded the Atelier Bellini where he has been engaged in architecture projects, architecture competitions, product and furniture design both in Italy and abroad. In 2003 he became art director for Barazzoni and he turned the company into one of the most successful companies in Italy in the sector of kitchen tools. It has to be mentioned his work for Natuzzi as a furniture designer, and to develop the company research for the point of purchase methodology (POP), and their concept stores, showrooms and exhibition spaces. Since 2005 he has held lectures and conferences in Design and Furniture Design in Genoa Polytechnic and all over the world (Design Summit - Round table, Hong Kong 2007, ICE conference, etc.) and his work has been extensively published and has won many prizes. In 2006 he founded the Claudio Bellini Design+Design that has been selected by the Spanish magazine El Pais as one of the ten most creative European design studios (Diez en diseno europeo, in El Pais Semanal (Spain), April 2007, pp. 22).
