Here's our top 20 list of best interior designers from Milan (pt1)



Patricia Urquiola

Matteo Nunziati

A list about the best interior designers of Milan wouldn’t be complete without the name of Matteo Nunziati in it. Born in Bologna in 1972 he’s currently considered one of the most influential designers and architects that the industry has ever seen. His career started in 200 when he opened his own interior design studio in Milan and since then in his projects, he’s managed to project the excellence of the Made in Italy design, basing his style in this sense and providing his clients with the best luxury furniture and finishes à l’Italiana. Matteo Nunziati has been handling Luxury hotels, Residences, Wellness Centres, and Spas. One of the main highlights of his career has to do with his take on the Trump Towers which earned him many compliments from the current POTUS himself.

Park Associatti

Park Associatti is an architecture firm created in Milan in 2000 by Filippo Pagliani and Michele Rossi. Since its creation, this firm has been focusing on giving each of their architectural projects a whole new shape either being a remodelling or a completely new concept. Whenever they tackle a new project they focus on the creation of geometrical constructions, improving the conditions (especially when it comes to illumination and energy saving) and adapting the project to its surrounding area. Among one of the most famous projects Park Associatti has done, we can definitely point to the redesign of the Engie Headquarters building in the Bicocca district which turned the building and its surrounding area into one of the most attractive for new service industries and offices of major corporations.

Marco Piva

Marco Piva is another top reference when it comes to Milanese architecture, interior design and product conceptions. After leading the establishment of Studiodada Associates (one of the most representative companies of the period of Radical Design) the architect opened his studio during the 80s and since then, this firm has been known for handling projects mainly in the areas of architectural interior design, as well as industrial design. Seen as this is a company that has had many projects worldwide, Marco Piva has a careful approach to his design projects, by studying and creating design solutions defined as having compositional sobriety and stylistic freedom, adapting to the culture of the project at stake. Within Italy, he’s known for his work in the Hotel Excelsior Gallia.

Alfonso Femia

Alfonso Femia first created the  5+1 agency in 1995, a company which evolved into 5+1AA in 2005, and that would eventually be known as Atelier(s) Alfonso Femia. Having a business that has expanded to Genoa, Milan and Paris, Alfonso has been tackling his architectural projects with the aid of a multidisciplinary team, inspired by the main features of these three locations. This company’s architectural style is heavily driven by the “perception and the transformation of reality” which can be seen in the many projects that Atelier(s) Alfonso Femia have tackled in their projects, like, for example, the Dallara Academy at Varano de’ Melegari, Parma, Italy.

Michelle de Lucchi

Born in 1951 in Ferrara, Michelle de Lucchi began taking his steps in the architecture area after his graduation in architecture in Florence. He’s also known for being a weigh figure during the period of radical and experimental architecture, having been the designer behind the conception of bespoke furniture pieces for many well known Italian and European companies. Aside from furniture conception, he was also credited for his restored buildings, as well as in the conception of many architectural projects for private and public clients. His architectural style, be it a huge building, or simple wooden house definitely shows De Lucchi’s tendency in his work of finding what he calls the “essentiality of the architectural style“.
