Pietro Russo

Born in Ostuni in 1967, Pietro Russo studied painting, scenography, and pottery decoration at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence before moving to Berlin to start his illustrious career. His first opportunity to collaborate with leading design brands like Kartell came in 2002 when he was hired by the Milan-based architecture studio Lissoni Associati. His creative instincts led him to establish his own home-atelier in 2010, where, helped by a prolific team of artisans, architects, and designers, he creates iconic pieces using materials such as wood, marble, and bronze.
