PIERO LISSONI The architect, designer and art director Piero Lissoni (1956), after graduating from the Politecnico di Milano, founded the Milan based interdisciplinary studio Lissoni Associati in 1986 together with Nicoletta Canesi, developing architecture, interior and industrial design projects.

In 2013 Lissoni Architettura was created and in 2015 the New York based Lissoni Inc. was established, to better serve clients in the Americas and to help expand the firm's international presence.
