Noname Studio is a Milano based service company mainly operating in the field of architecture, interior design and furniture, with over 10 years of hands-on experience.
Our work is driven by three principles: cooperation, environment and knowledge.
Creativity is a cooperative process, that’s why our practice has grown over the years through a collaborative method in design.
The environment is both the physical context in which we design and the human beings for which we design. Each project starts with fresh thinking and leads to a tailor-made solution for both site and users.
Knowledge is an extraordinary legacy that history has brought to us. Therefore to envision the future we need to know the past. That’s why we study typologies of the past to solve current challenges, we learn the lessons of the Masters to imagine new solutions, we experiment alliances of traditional materials with contemporary elements.
Our constant formal research leads us to an extremely sober, detailed and yet very distinct style.
