Luciano Pagani e Angelo Perversi
"We try to add a little piece of future to our projects, so that our dreams become one with the happiness of many."
Luciano Pagani and Angelo Perversi (1950) graduated in architecture at the Politecnico di Milano. They opened a practice in the mid-1980s, occupying themselves with architecture, industrial design, lighting design and art direction. Among their most important architectural works are the headquarters of the newspaper La Repubblica in Rome, the headquarters of the newspaper Corriere della Sera in Milan and Rome, and the headquarters of the newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport. The architects’ attention to the relationship between buildings and illumination led to the development of numerous lighting projects for art galleries, museums and public buildings. In terms of product design, their studio has worked with a number of prominent international designers and companies such as Flos, Joint, FontanaArte, Zanotta, UniFor and Poltrona Frau. They have received two Compasso d’Oro awards: in 1987 for their Hook System modular bookcases, for Joint; in 1998 for their Flipper office tables and containers, for UniFor. They have been teaching at the Politecnico di Milano since 1999.
