Marco Piva, Italian architect, interior designer and product designer, born on February 15, 1952, in Milan.

Biography[edit]

He graduated in architecture at Politecnico di Milano and founded STUDIODADA in 1977, that was one of the main design offices of the radical period.[1][2]

In 1990 he opens his own brand, Studio Marco Piva, with activities ranging from large architectural projects for tourist facilities, to interior design, masterplan and finally industrial design.

From 1987 to 1990 was member of the Presidential Board of Associazione per il Disegno Industriale (ADI). In 1987, Marco Piva also founded IDA, International Design Agency,[3] an Italian interface for a World Design Network system.

In 2001, a variety of experiences in strategic consulting in the field of design and hotel hospitality culminated in consulting with the hospitality division of Federlegno. In 2002, “Atelier Design” was established, the Studio’s atelier which was created as a centre for industrial design research and development.

Meantime, this remarkable activity has been combined with teaching positions at universities and design institutes both in Italy and abroad, and the organisation of the post-graduate master's degree program at the Politecnico di Milano the Polytechnic School of Design and the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan.
