In 1992 he moves to Paris where he begins a two year collaboration with Philippe Starck. During his permanence, he is involved in projects with main design brands like Kartell, Flos, Cassina and Driade. In 1995, back to Milan, he opens his agency, mainly operating in the field of furniture design, interior and architecture.

In the same period he works for different Italian brands and, particularly, establishes a firm collaboration as design consultant for Driade.

Besides design, the cooperation with Driade occupies him in different areas such as graphic project, interior and architecture.

Again as designer, besides serial furniture collection, he is involved in the project of kitchen programs and integrated storage modular systems, developing a more technical attitude towards complex project.

From the very begin of his activity he is often based in South East Asia in search of suppliers and manufacturers, as product manager of Italian companies and also carrying on his own product.

Based mainly in Thailand, he consolidate collaboration with suppliers in Taiwan, Indonesia, China, Vietnam and India.

By this period he develops his basic design approach consisting in the systemic search of a clear balance between a simple and elementary technology deriving from South Asian manufactures and the western industrial high standard quality. His preference is firmly oriented to the use of natural and traditional materials like rattan, wood and iron combined together in simple and clear structures.

His design work is carried on in parallel with his constant activity as interior designer and architect.
