Marco Acerbis is an Italian designer born in 1973. Graduated at the Politecnico of Milan in 1998, until 2004 he worked and lived in London, where he had had the opportunity of cooperating with the studio Foster&Partners. Among his most important experiences of those years, the greatest was the one which involved him in the construction of a 8-floor building for the scientific research in the Imperial College. He became project director of “Capital City Academy”, a high school for 1400 students, long 250 m. and inaugurated by Tony Blair. Back to Italy in 2004, he opened his own architecture and design studio. Since always fascinated by projecting, he has explored many fields overlapping constantly different competences, intuitions, technologies and themes, aiming to the creation of a global space. The lamp “Vertigo”, designed for Fontana Arte, has become immediately both a best seller and a timeless icon and is included in the permanent collection of the “Vitra Design Museum”. The door grip Prius, designed for Colombo Design won the mention for the XXI Compasso d’Oro. His interest towards the themes of contemporary living has lead him to experience also the world of eco-friendly architecture with the construction of many innovative products.
