Andrea Bonini, designer and art director, was born in Verona in 1985. After graduating in interior design from the Marangoni Institute in Milan, he founded his gallery studio in 2014.
In 2015 he began working with the design company Turri, a brand wordwide known for the luxury sector.
The collections resulting from this collaboration have received international awards at the Salone del Mobile, and are published in the leading international design and architecture magazines.
In 2019 the magazine AD Italia Architectural Digest awarded Andrea Bonini in the category ‘’Seven for the future’’ among the best designers under 35.
His design, in continuous evolution, aims to obtain a sensual and luxurious atmosphere, reinterpreted through apparently simple shapes but in reality deeply cared for in detail.
Shapes, materials and craftsmanship guide the designer in the creations of unique and limited edition projects.
His interiors evoke strong physical and emotional experiences, but Bonini does not forget that design is primarily an expression of lifestyle, and that the home is a reflection of those who live in it.
Andrea Bonini seizes every detail that strikes his attention with a critical eye. A still image, imprinted in the mind, which becomes an idea through a process of mental elaboration and a fusion of scenarios. The cultural background in which Bonini was born is characterized by the timeless charm of a precious combination of two materials that enhance each other: metal and marble
His is a family of metal artisans for several generations and Bonini was born in a landscape which is the cradle of marble extraction and processing. The deep knowledge of these two fascinating and natural elements leads him to often insert them in his works; he prefers them in their authentic finishes and shades, sometimes raw or with their natural imperfections, typical of this material. Adopted by the city of Milan; here he gains his first success and initia- tes important collaborations. Bonini listens and follows the artistic trails left by his masters; from Carlo Scarpa to Franco Albini and Christian Liaigre.
Andrea Bonini is sensitive and concentrated, with meticulous commitment he follows every phase of his products and his interiors; he is personally active in dealing with the craftsmen and his sharp pencil captures any variation or improvement.
During his career he chooses to design for companies with high artisanal criteria; the same intention is reflected in his interior projects, attention to every detail with a sartorial approach recognizable on the international scene. Bonini has successfully completed and is currently working on projects in Italy, China, the United Kingdom and the French Riviera.
To date, his studio atelier is located in Milan in via Montenapoleone, core of Italian excellence. It is a small yet refined ambience; a boutique with contemporary taste. Here his pencil gives life to all his projects, elaborated in every detail together with his team, producing a strongly recognisable and prestigious result.
