He was a prominent figure in movements such as Cavart, Alchymia and Memphis during the period of radical architecture and in 1990 he set up Produzione Privata, a small-scale concern through which he, unsolicited by clients, designs products made using artisan techniques and crafts.
His works are exhibited in the most important design museums in Europe, USA and Japan.
