Marco Piva

Exciting, fluid, functional. This is the language that distinguishes Marco Piva's architectural creations, product design and interior design. He received his degree from the Politecnico di Milano in 1977. The value of differentiation and design innovation led to the founding of Studiodada Associati in 1978, with creations that became some of the most symbolic representations of the Radical Design period.

Wonder and research are transferred from micro-contexts to a scale of macro-projects. In 1984 Studio Marco Piva was opened, with activities ranging from large architectural projects to interior design and finally industrial design. From 1987 to 1990 he is a member of the Presidential Board of ADI.

In 1987 Marco Piva also founded IDA, International Design Agency, then from 1988 to 1991 he created EDEA, European Design Expert Association. In 2002 Atelier Design was established, the Studio's atelier which was created as a centre for industrial design research and development. Since 1999 this remarkable activity has been combined with teaching positions at universities and design institutes both in Italy and abroad.
