Michele Russo


Michele is an Italian designer, born and raised in a small town amongst the Alps. To attend the University he moved to Milan and there, after that, began his career as a designer.

With his curiosity and love for creativity inherited from his grandfather, who was an artful and inventive blacksmith, he choose to attend the University of Design at Politecnico di Milano. After the graduation, he had the chance to work in different fields, from nautic design to the event planning, but what he love the most is furniture and complements design. Working in design studios, Michele got in contact with some of the best Italian companies, amongst which Lema, Paola Lenti, Lapalma, Morellato and Koh-I-Noor.

Michele really appreciates low-key design, elegant and measured, with a twist of irony and brilliance. And that’s what he aims to when he designs a new product: a couch, a chair, a table or some tableware. He always want to find that small particular that makes his project somehow interesting.
