"For me, design is a magical balance. A process of synthesis able to condense the complexities of a project into an essential and organic product, but still full of meaning."
David Dolcini was born in Italy, near Milan, in a family with a long tradition in craftsmanship and production. His vision and approach to design comes from a combination of different educational and professional experiences abroad over the years.
After finishing his studies at Politecnico di Milano in 2004, he entered the design world as a project manager for Luceplan and later worked for A00-Architecture in Shanghai.
In 2007 he founded his own brand DAVID DOLCINI, which deals mainly with product and industrial design, interior design, installations and art direction.
Dolcini's design approach is characterized by direct technical insight in each project, knowledge of materials and production technologies, combined with transversal research: from art to architecture, from craftsmanship to industrial design.
Some of his works, such as Ara, Pinocchio and MOD, have been selected for international exhibitions and exhibited at the Triennale di Milano.
Between 2003 and 2011 he collaborated with NGOs in the development of social projects in Kenya, Brazil and Mozambique. In 2012 he opened a new base of operations in Valencia, Spain, and in 2017 and 2018 he was Ambassador for the Italian Design Day in the world; in Yerevan (Armenia) and Helsinki (Finland).
Every single project is developed through a rigorous design methodology and a multidisciplinary analytical criterion. The methodological approach of the Studio is based on the combination and interaction of the following key points:
Accurate and tailor-made work on each project, dealing directly with individual problems and testing solutions and details through prototypes and models made by hand in our laboratory.
Innovation as a design driver, matured in years of projects through a constant direct comparison with the main and most modern industrial production technologies.
Never forget where we come from! Italian heritage is an immense and wonderful heritage that permeates all our work and characterizes the identity of the studio and the approach to each project.
The numerous experiences abroad over the years, the opening of an operative base also in Spain and the collaboration with clients from all over the world enrich the studio with an international vision.
