PIERO LISSONI Piero Lissoni began his career as a furniture designer after receiving his degree in architecture from the Politecnico di Milano. In 1986 he founded his own studio, which specialised in architecture, furniture, interiors, and graphic design, and produced a diverse architecture portfolio that included designs for showrooms, yachts, private residences and hotels. In 2004 Knoll introduced Pierro Lissoni’s Divina Lounge Collection, originally designed for his long time client, Living Divina. Two years later, he and his studio’s design manager, Marc Krusin, co-designed the wa office system for Knoll International. With no predetermined connection points, the brilliantly simple design featured a patented 360 degree clip mechanism allowing any component to be attached to any workstation, on any side. MARC KRUSIN Marc Krusin was born in London in 1973. He graduated in the UK and after placements with Fred Scott and George Sowden, he began his career in Milan collaborating as a designer with various studios. These include Piero Lissoni’s office, where he is presently design manager and runs projects for clients of international reputation such as Alessi, Kartell, Flos, Thonet, Wella, Fritz Hansen and Knoll. In 1998 he co-founded the Milan based group Codice 31 with five other designers from diverse backgrounds. The group’s first appearance was at the 1998 Milan furniture fair’s “Salone Satellite” exhibition for young designers and in successive years it enjoyed continual expansion and gained an increasing importance in the design world, collaborating with some of the sector’s most prestigious companies. Since 2004 he has collaborated with Omnidecor and in 2006 a series of Marc’s decorations for float glass were commercialised marking the beginning of a close working relationship which led to an entire new product image and presentation concept designed by Marc for the company. Marc has continued to design furniture, products, exhibitions and spaces for well-known companies in the design industry.
