Claudio Bellini lives and works in Milan, where he was born in 1963. In 1990, he graduated in Architecture and Industrial Design from the Politecnico di Milano and embarked on a series of international experiences. In 1988, he designed the TW Collection for Frezza, a timeless product that officially marked his arrival on the scene and his specialisation in office design a sector in which he has received numerous awards. Over subsequent years, he worked with a number of long-established firms in the field of Italian and international design and also worked on interior design projects for major showrooms. In 2006, he founded Claudio Bellini Design+Design, a practice concentrating on formal and technological research with a decidedly experimental approach developed through the firm’s prototype workshop. He teaches the course in Design and Furnishings at the Politecnico di Genova. Since 2003, he has been Art Director for Barazzoni.
