Marco PaolelliMeneghello Paolelli AssociatiMilano, Italy
Marco Paolelli is Partner and Design Director at Meneghello Paolelli Associati, a product design studio based in Milan. For Marco, who describes himself as a man, lateral thinker and design manager, the fact that he is also an Italian leads to a degree of confusion: the challenge of being permanently influenced by his surroundings, the art, the architecture, the design, the food, the fashion and the gestures of his native country drives him to translate his heritage, his so-called DNA, into perceived quality. Marco and his partner Sandro Meneghello see design as a solution that emerges in synergy with their clients. The numerous awards they have won in the field of product design, including ten Red Dot design awards (one of them a Best of the Best), five Design Plus, two Good Design Awards, four ADI Design Index and two special mentions by the German Design Award, are seen by both men as confirmation of their strategy and their work.
