Recognized as one of the most influential European designers today, Claudio Bellini lives and works in Milan where he graduated in Architecture and Industrial Design at the renowned Politecnico di Milano university in 1990.
Early in his career, Bellini collaborated at Mario Bellini Associati, participating in many types of projects and competitions in architecture and design internationally. He founded the design studio Atelier Bellini in 1996 with a focused interest and original approach to the relationship between new technologies and creative processes.
In 1998 his revolutionary new office furniture system, TW Collection for Frezza, introduced a completely new vision to the contemporary office landscape. From that point on, his development of innovative projects in this area has broadly contributed to trends in the evolution of the working environment.
As a professor of furniture design at Genova University from 2004 to 2008, Bellini held lectures and conferences all over the world, and his work has been extensively published. He describes his creative process as a mind adventure, free of any prejudice, animated only by enthusiasm, curiosity, and optimism.
Today, his studio Claudio Bellini Design is active within several fields of design, ranging from furniture and product design to architecture, and partners with leading companies worldwide. Many of the studio’s creations have received international design awards, including the prestigious Red Dot, IF, and Good Design Awards.
