Architect and designer Monica Armani was born in Trento. She currently divides her time between Trento and Milan. She began her professional career working with her father, rationalist architect Marcello Armani, who passed on to her a passion for designing and planning, an attention to detail, and an enthusiasm for exploring new ideas. In 1996, together with Luca Dallabetta, she began to create a very successful line of products: progetto 1, which was characterized by simple and innovative design and which established Monica Armani as a trademark in the world of contemporary design. In her projects, formal aesthetics, innovation and engineering give life to a unique and recognizable style, characterized by a continuous connection between industrial design, architecture and interior decoration. The rigor of geometry always inspires my projects, together with the need to free space from the burden of symbols. “Less is more”, one of Mies van der Rohe’s maxims, is how I identify myself. I believe that the work of cleaning a project, the “matching of details,” or the search for a balance of all its aspects, is an essential step for creating “spaces” that are contemporary and at the same time timeless. For Poliform, she designed the YOU containers, a synthesis between simplicity and technology.
