Marcello Ziliani was born in Brescia in 1963 under the sign of Pisces. In 1988 he graduated in architecture at the Politecnico di Milano with Achille Castiglioni as a supervisor (and unmatched teacher). After three years abroad, he returned to Italy and devoted himself mainly to the development of projects for the design of furniture, complement, lighting, bathroom, office, objects and early childhood, working in addition for exhibitions, theatrical choreography, art direction, design coordination, graphics and communication. He doesn’t like the absolutism and the indestructible certainties, he loves to look at things with always different eyes to be in tune with them, he prefers to speak softly and, above all to listen. He believes that any project is, after all, a desire, a hope of flight. He believes that, despite the great run you can do waving your arms uselessly, sooner or later you can have your ten meters of gliding. Like all the designers, more or less, he put aside the minimum necessary equipment of prizes and awards, he has given lectures, workshops, he served on juries and so on. Since 2011 he’s been a professor of product design at the University of San Marino / IUAV. He signed projects for Allibert, BBB, Bertocci, Calligaris, Casprini, Ciacci, Ciatti, Domitalia, Donati, Flex, Flou, Flos, Fontana Arte, Frascio, Geuther, Inglesina, Infifi niti, ISA, Krios, Krover, Lanzini, Magis, Modo e Modo, Norda, Olympia, Opinion Ciatti, Pali, Parri, Progetti, Rapsel, Roche Bobois, Sintesi, Techimpex, Vanini, Views International, Visentin, Zago.
