Claudio Milanesi

After studying art in Italy and obtaining his master’s degree at Brescia University, Claudio has worked there as a painter and designer. His works have been objects of several art exhibitions and prizes. He started his international career in academic research at the Design and Material Innovation department of UofT University, located in Canada. 

In 2016, he began working in the Asian market, handling high-quality design projects, including the construction supervision of the OoEli project, JNBY & GOA Headquarters in Hangzhou (designed by Renzo Paino Building Workshop). In China, in 2019, Claudio founded FORME Group.


Practice Ideology

FORME explores new design language through the parallel approach of “Design+Research.” The firm believes that architectural form is not only the result of the designer’s eclectic decisions but also the architectural expression of various environmental, socio-cultural, and engineering factors.
