After completing his studies at Milan Polytechnic, Stefano Lodesani made the bold decision to move to San Francisco. There, he continued to expand his knowledge and skills by pursuing further education at the esteemed California College of Art and Craft and Berkeley University. In 2010, he took a significant step in his career by founding his own studio.
Stefano's diverse range of interests led him to delve into various fields such as architecture, design, and graphic design. With his distinctive style and innovative approach, he has successfully designed and worked on projects for private residences, boutiques, showrooms, and exhibition stands around the world. His work has even earned him recognition in the ADI Design Index and a spot as a finalist for the prestigious Compasso d'Oro 2018 award in the food design category.
In addition to his accomplishments in design, Stefano also ventured into the world of art. In 2017, he curated the exhibition "Confessionals" by Michael Kenna, showcasing his ability to blend artistic concepts with design principles. In 2019, he dedicated another exhibition to Antonio Fontanesi at the civic museums of Reggio Emilia, further expanding his artistic endeavors.
Since 2020, Stefano has collaborated with Nestart, lending his expertise to projects like Fooi, Creo, Ode, and Zeno. His extensive experiences have honed his ability to perceive the most harmonious solutions and, above all, to distill them into tangible objects.
For Stefano, design is a meticulous endeavor that relies on attention to detail, measuring within centimeters and even millimeters. Over time, his trained eye has developed into a natural instinct, enabling him to invent his own golden rule, his own sense of beauty and proportion.
Stefano's commitment to his craft and his relentless pursuit of perfection continue to propel him forward, leaving a lasting impact in the design world.
