Emmanuel Gallina (1972-) is a French designer active in Milan and Paris. To summarize his approach to design, he likes to quote a famous phrase by Constantin Brancusi: "Simplicity, in art, is a resolved complexity". His stylistic signature is in fact made up of a simple elegance, devoid of aesthetic trappings, in which sobriety is sublimated into refinement. In this, the influence of a master of contemporary design, Antonio Citterio, is particularly evident, in whose studio Gallina worked for seven years after studying in France and Milan. He later founded his own design studio through which he collaborated with some important Italian and French brands such as Poliform and Porada for the home or Ethimo and Fast for the outdoor. He was also a professor at the Politecnico of Milan.
