Founded his studio in 2010. Gio Tirotto develops interior, product and exhibition projects, focusing his art direction in Research first and than through the best clean summary between shape and function.

“I act in order to be a bridge that connects thought and message, unavoidable goal of my artistic language”.
Everything he designs comes from the attention towards what’s around him, living or inanimate. If there is a limit between art and design, he tries to erase it and re-design all the existing complicity among human beings and objects. This is the reason why he believes that rituals, memory and imagination are often the essential function of things.
