Francesco Rota (1966-) is an appreciated Italian designer. He completed his studies in Switzerland, at the European headquarters of the prestigious ArtCenter College of Design. His design studio has been open since 2018 and is famous above all for two great collaborations: the one with Paola Lenti, for whom he designed most of the furnishings, and the one with Lapalma, of which he has been the art director since 2013. In both he they rediscover the distinctive traits characteristic of his style: a refined taste for color, always delicate but without fear of daring, an attention to comfortable shapes that know how to look beyond the fashions of the moment and a marked sensitivity for composition. Other famous brands he has collaborated with are Lema, Living Divani, MDF Italia and Oluce. His works have received several important international awards: from the Honorable Mention to the Compasso d 'Oro (won three times) to the RedDot Design Award, from the Good Design Awards to the Wallpaper * Design Award and many others.
