Your chance to meet the legend: PIERO LISSONI, presented by B&B Italia and FLOS. 3

The name itself invites a simple, elegant sophistication. What else then would a conversation with one of the most illustrious names in the field of design prompt? A far cry from the straitjacketed image of a contemporary Italian minimalist designer, Lissoni is casual, fun and refreshingly honest.

And he is visiting New Delhi come October.

B&B Italia and FLOS are proud to present Piero Lissoni – in conversation with the legend and a showcase of his iconic works exclusively at the vis a vis Experience Centre in New Delhi on 27th October 2017.

Piero Lissoni is a master craftsman of spaces, furniture, products as well as graphics. Having trained as an architect, he graduated from Polytecnico di Milano and established the interdisciplinary studio Lissoni Associati together with Nicolette Canesi in 1986. Since, he has built a portfolio that ranges from the design of hospitality buildings to luxury resorts, planning of showrooms to private houses, and even yachts.

Some of Lissoni’s most well known architectural projects include the Oberoi Resort Al Zorah, Ajman; Conservatorium Hotel, Amsterdam; renovation for the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Mumbai; and recently the winning entry for the waterfront Aquatrium Competition, New York.

Inducted into the New York ID Hall of Fame, besides phenomenal architectural creations, Lissoni’s extraordinary repertoire is studded with outstanding work in the design of products, furniture and even light fittings. He has had a long standing relationship with a number of internationally renowned brands, of which one of his oldest associations has been with FLOS, and the most recent with B&B Italia.
