David Chipperfield (1953-) is one of the most renowned figures in the panorama of contemporary English architecture. Born in London, he completed his professional training working extensively for two of the most famous British architects of our time, Norman Foster and Richard Rogers, leading figures in high-tech architecture. His style, however, differs radically from that of the masters, developing into solid and precious buildings, played on pure volumes that sometimes reach effects of metaphysical abstraction, emphasized by the use of non-linear and unusual plans. Among his most famous creations are several museums, including the Neues Museum in Berlin, the MUDEC in Milan and the Collecion Jumex in Mexico City. Very active in Italy and Germany, he has also brought his design rigor to the world of product design through rare collaborations with companies such as e15, Artemide, Alessi, FontanaArte, Wästberg and Driade.
