Claudio Silvestrin (1954-) is a highly regarded Italian architect and designer active in London. His rigorously minimalist style is capable of creating a solemn and majestic serenity in environments with sparse neutral colors and essential lines. His stylistic path follows that of AG Fronzoni, under whom he completed his studies in Milan, and of John Pawson, in whose studio he worked from 1986 to 1988, both considered two great masters of architecture minimalist. These experiences were followed in 1989 by the opening of his studio CSA - Claudio Silvestrin Architects, which in 2006 also opened a second office in Milan. His architecture lends itself both to the creation of commercial spaces intended for high-end luxury (particularly relevant in this sense is his collaboration with Giorgi Armani, for whom he designed numerous showrooms throughout the world) and to the museum sector (such as the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation, 2002, considered one of his masterpieces). In the residential sector, however, we especially remember the loft designed in Manhattan for Kanye West in 2007. Clean lines and dry colors also characterize his production as a designer, developed through collaborations with brands such as Boffi, Poltrona Frau, Cappellini, Glas Italia, Minotti Cucine, Ceramica Cielo, Bottega Ghianda and others.
