Architect and designer Monica Armani began her professional career working with her father, rationalist architect Marcello Armani.
In 1996, together with Luca Dallabetta, she began to create a very successful line of products: progetto 1.
In 2005 the project was launched by B&B Italia and since then Monica Armani has worked for the most important international design firms in this sector, including B&B Italia, Boffi, Tribù, Snaidero, Gallotti e Radice, Molteni&C, Moroso, Effeti, Mutina, Teknion Studio, Poliform and Viccarbe.
In her projects, formal aesthetics, innovation and engineering give life to a unique and recognizable style, characterized by a continuous connection between industrial design, architecture, art direction and corporate identity: a combination that produces an unexpected use of space, with innovative and specific technical solutions from the lights to the façade, from internal divisions to plant-design solutions.
Retracing the steps of the great masters, Monica Armani has also chosen to work on temporary structures as a concrete response to the current need for sustainability. Her recent projects, the Lounge for Poltrona Frau Group, and the Corriere della Sera house presented at Expo 2015, are new points of reference in the world of temporary building structures.
