Noname Studio is an international design practice based in Milano, Istanbul and Shanghai with over 10 years of hands-on experience. Our work is driven by three principles: cooperation, environment and knowledge.
Creativity is a cooperative process. Our practice has grown over the years through a collaborative method in design. The design headquarters in Milan is the central creative hub where our team of professionals deliver projects flexibly and responsively, due to a strong coordination between our three offices. The partnership with different professionals allowed us to achieve a wide and diversified range of skills, dealing with enterprises and public projects that tackle different fields of design.
Environment is both the physical context in which we design and the human beings for whom we design. Every project starts with fresh thinking and leads to a solution that is tailor-made to both site and users. We developed an integrated and multi disciplinary process that results in an appropriate and innovative design, a response for every circumstance and clients requirements.
Knowledge is an extraordinary legacy that history has brought to us. Therefore to envision the future we need to know the past. This is why we study typologies from the past to solve present 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 lead us to an extremely sober-detailed and yet very distinct style.
