Italy’s rich history and beautiful architectural landmarks are what makes this one of the most important design capitals in the world. It’s the city where luxury fashion brands, design showrooms and design studios decide to set their career in. Hosting some of the best interior design events, the beautiful city of Milan is also the hometown of some of the world’s top interior designers, such as the Italian legend Carlo Donati.
Some of the most inspiring residential or commercial projects are designed by this Italian design studio, which has become one of the most renowed deisgners in the world, much due to the unique style and creativity spotted in every project. Its founder, Carlo Donati was born in Zibello (Parma) in 1965 and studied architecture at the Politecnico of Milan where he graduated in 1992. Most of his design projects have been published in the most influential interior design magazines and books of architecture in Italy and all over the world.
A few years later, in 1995, Carlo Donati moved to New York to be the consultant architect of one of the most famous luxury design groups in the world: Versace. During that time, the Italian interior designer was challenged with the renovation of Gianni Versace’s townhouse and the historic Vanderbilt Mansion, the main flagship store on Fifth Avenue, setting his career for success.
It was in 1996 that Carlo Donati decided to create his own firm “Carlo Donati Studio”, but also the “Farnese Contract” with Adriano Donati and Massimo Avanzini, that operates as a general contractor, working with the most successful design studios. He fed off the incredible experience of working for one of the top luxury design groups and quickly gained fame.
In every design project, Carlo Donati‘s minimalist approach is always contaminated by chromatic and graphic suggestions inspired by the theme chosen in the planning process. Obsessed with perfection and attention to every detail, the Italian designer loves to use both artificial and natural light to emphasize volumes and perspectives of his design project. No matter if it’s a contemporary project or a mid-century modern one, you’ll find perfection in every detail.
For Carlo Donati, every project is unique, so it’s important to include in the design unique furniture ideas, specially tailored to the each interior. His constant research for new material solutions and the attention for the chromatic palette is what makes his design projects so exclusive. The Italian design studio is currently working on a new residential building with luxury apartments and utilities in Milan downtown.
Besides creating unique interior design projects, the Carlo Donati studio is also famous for its unique custom-made furniture designs, lighting designs and home accessories that are all about the mid-century modern style. Each one of these exclusive pieces is made with the finest high-quality material, so they can be the centerpiece for your project that you’re looking for, all with the unmistakable attention to detail Carlo Donati is so well-known for!
