Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni has designed a series of modern private homes, sophisticated hotel interiors, elegant yachts, uncompromisingly streamlined furniture, kitchens, bathrooms, and objects for companies such as Alessi, Boffi, Cassina, Flos, Fritz Hansen, Kartell, Knoll, Living Divani, Tecno, and Thonet.

"In theMilan tradition, one is first an architect, then at the same time engineer or designer. They are capable of designing a spoon or an entire city," says the all-round artist.

Lissoni's minimalism requires precious materials, perfectly thought-out details, and well thought out look and feel. This is also evident in this monograph on his architectural and design work.

Lissoni co-designed the volume.
