Leo De Carlo

He was born in Venice in 1972. After graduating as a Master of Arts at the Venice School of Art, he enrolled at the Politecnico di Milano where he attended for two years Architecture, which, when the Degree in Industrial Design is activated, abandons. He graduated five years later in Industrial Design (1998) with a biomedical research thesis on the design of a hygenic myocardial orthosis developed in collaboration with the Bioengineering Center of the Don Gnocchi Foundation in Milan. The idea is for him to award a scholarship from the Polytechnic for innovation. A month after graduating he was called to Paris in Philippe Starck's studio to develop an innovative faucet concept conceived during the Erasmus period spent in England at Brunel University. Collaboration that is born as a temporary and specific project - extends for 5 years. At this time, he has the opportunity to follow, on behalf of the Starck Agency, projects and international clients operating in the most diverse sectors: from lighting to lighting technology, electronics to telecommunications. Returning to Italy in 2003, he decides to open his own studio in Venice, beginning to consolidate relations with companies known during his French period. In 2008, he opened a studio in Brescia, with the aim of continuously assisting and coordinating clients in the area.

ALESSANDRO LA SPADA

Born in Italy’s Reggio Calabria, to Sicilian parents, Alessandro La Spada moved to Milan to attend the IDI’AC Interior Design Institute & Ateneo Creativo institute where he took his diploma.
Afterwards he became a lecturer in Furniture Design at the same institution as well as at the Domus Academy. However, the energy and personality instilled in him by his southern Italian childhood were never far away and, in fact, these elements have permeated his entire creative life. 
Today he is held as one of the most brilliant raconteurs of Italian style in the world, capable of building diverse universes from the imaginative deeds of real-life people or indeed from his own untamed imagination. Just an off-hand word from an unguarded customer might be that very word which ends up plotting the entire life trajectory of a growing company.
Eccentric and eclectic, La Spada has always been fascinated by the emotional content of objects; an avid drawer, he favours working in close contact with his raw materials and with steel in particular.
It is not by chance that he chooses to define himself as self-taught, with the air of a true artisan. For companies in the furnishings sector he designs collections that are out of the ordinary; imagines dreamlike environments and designs products that tell their own stories.
A dream and not a path to follow; style, but not an exercise in stylishness.

Among the firms with which he collaborates are, Visionnaire, Antolini, Besana, La Murrina, Longhi, Milldue and Smania Industria Italiana Mobili.

Enrico De Girardi

For his early and extraordinary precocious manuality, he was engaged since when he was very young from a lighting manufacturer, even before ending the studies (which he will monitor parallel). The turning crucial point in his career came in 1967, when the founders of MM LAMPADARI give to Enrico the role of Product Assistant. During the decades he distinguish himself for his creativity and for the ability to give new life to new and futuristic forms, becoming an exceptional strength for the international success of the company. But, just as he did with his inimitable chandeliers, De Girardi was able to form and shape the generations of Designers and Craftsmen after him, imparting not only the professional secrets but also personal passion: a contribution which, after his death makes, if possible, his memory sweetest for all of us.
Thanks Enrico.
