Simone Mantovani has being working for more than 20 years, with passion and delight for architecture and people, translating desires and ways of life into forms, functionality and technology, in a unique and individual approach. Always researching for new ways and solutions that could impact and improve her projects, and combining her knowledge in interior design, lighting and cenography for innovative and surprising results.
All her projects are developed on the basis of research into materials and on elaborate construction, taking into consideration the environment in which they are to come to life. With no pre-determined script for her architectural incursions that might start with an overall layout and terminate, for example, in designing a special lamp. The client's brief, the analysis of how he interacts with his world and his participation to the process of spaces creation are the starting points, and seen by her as crucial to the definitive success of her projects.
