Enrico Cesana was born in 1970. He attended the faculty of architecture of the Milan Polytechnic university, where he graduated in 1997. Between 1998 and 2004, two enjoyable professional experiences led him to focus on industrial and interior design and to investigate various design methods and approaches. In 2005, he opened his own studio in Lissone (MB), dealing in industrial design, architecture and communication; he has designed more than 100 products for leading Italian concerns, including SpHaus, Ivano Redaelli, Gruppo Industriale Busnelli, Acam, Cinova, Orizzonti, Olivieri, Alivar, My Home collection, Dorelan and Alf Da Frè, and has designed the concept stores for Corner Optique by Randazzo, Next People by Aureli, Optissimo Gruppo Randazzo, Samsonite and Cleaf Spa. He is a versatile and prolific designer, who loves to describe himself as a “designer catering to the needs of companies”.
