Massimiliano Adami (1969) studied design at the Istituto Statale d’Arte in Monza and at the Design Faculty of the Politecnico in Milan.
From his debut in 1998 with the exhibition “Il fantasma del design”, he has taken part in various contests and exhibitions, leading to his successful participation at the Salone Satellite in 2005.
Thanks to his experimentation on materials and manufacturing techniques, based heavily on those of the traditional craftsman, his work falls half way between art and design, combining project-planning with self-production.
Massimiliano Adami collaborates with various companies such as Cappellini, Meritalia, Gruppo Fendi/DesignMiami. His projects are frequently showcased in important design galleries: Moss in New York, Rossana Orlandi in Milan, Ottobarradieci in Bergamo, Onepieceart in Rome.
In 2009, his work “Fossili Moderni” was included in the permanent collection of the Design Museum in Milan, following the “Magma Fossile” exhibition organised by Stefano Maffei at the Triennale.
Massimiliamo Adami puts his name to the Terraviva project: a new step in the company’s constant path of experimentation and ceramic research.
BESIDE is Massimiliano Adami’s latest project for DesignTaleStudio, the creative laboratory of Ceramiche Refin.
