Massimo Iosa Ghini was born in 1959 and he studied architecture in Florence, graduating at Polytechnic Institute in Milan. Since 1985, he has been part of the avant-garde movement in Italian design, creating illustrations, objects and ambiences for the Bolidism group, which he founded. He was also called on by Ettore Sottsass to be part of the Memphis group. During this period, he opened the Iosa Ghini Studio, starting to work as an architect and designer. Iosa Ghini designs furniture, collections and objects, and develops art direction for leading Italian and foreign design firms such as Yamagiwa Lighting in Japan, Silhouette Modellbrillen, Zumtobel Staff in Austria, Duravit, Dornbracht and Hoesch in Germany, Cinova, Cassina, Flou, Fiam, Listone Giordano, Moroso, Poltrona Frau, Hatria, Snaidero, Saporiti in Italy, and he has defined a highly recognisable and personal style over the years.
His professional growth as an architect has developed through his work in planning architectural and exhibit areas, creating cultural and commercial installations, and designing retail chains and architectures around the world commissioned by very important clients as Üstra AG in Hannover, The Collection in Miami, Ferrari Auto, Maserati, Assopiastrelle, Indesit Group, Superga and Alitalia. He has held conferences and lectures at a number of universities, including the Polytechnic Institute of Milan, the Domus Academy, the University of Rome, the Elisava School in Barcelona, the Design Fachhoschule in Cologne, and the Hochschule für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna. He has also represented Italian design at various international symposia. His works can be found in various international museums and private collections. His projects have received the Red Hot Award, the Roscoe Award and the Good Design Award 2001 and 2003 by the Chicago Atheneum.
