Designer ■ Architect
Pietro Franceschini is an architect and designer based in Milan and New York. He applies a contemporary design vocabulary to a classical Italian sensibility. Irreverent and Emotionally impactful, Franceschini's furniture reflects his desire to combine playful energy within sophisticated, timeless elements. A resolutely twenty-first-century designer, he imbues his work with questions about reality, functionality and digital illusion.
He was educated in Italy, Portugal and United States. After receiving his B.Arch cum laude from Università degli Studi di Firenze and his M.S.Arch with 1st class honour from Pratt Institute, he collaborated among others with Leeser Architecture in Brooklyn, Claudio Nardi in Florence, Laisné Roussel in Paris and Carlo Ratti Associati in New York. His latest project - PF|Studio - was born in 2020 as an interior and furniture design practice.
