"A man’s heart needs beauty"
Interior designer, product designer and stylist, Erasmo Figini began his professional journey in the renewed and prestigious textile division of Ratti, becoming its Design Director shortly after.
Parallel to his work for Ratti and other important textile brands, in 1982 he opened two boutique retail stores in Como, specializing in refurbishment, interior decoration, antiques and textiles design.
Since the early nineties Erasmo Figini has been collaborating with important textiles groups (Clerici Tessuto, Rubelli, Frette, to mention a few) and furniture (RS Valeo, Riva 1920) .
He continues to design interiors on projects such as private residences in Italy (Milan, Rome, Capri, Courmayeur, Santa Margherita Ligure, etc.) and internationally (Paris, St. Moritz).
His eclectic interests, combined with innate curiosity and originality, push Erasmo Figini beyond the borders of “standard design”, allowing him to reinterpret both tradition and modernity in his unique and authentic way.
Recent examples of his work incorporate elements of innovative and eco-sustainable concepts within tradition and craft.
A few examples are his planning and design of the Oliver Twist School, Bulgari temporary store, Castadiva Resort, Vodafone Learning Center, and the Anagramma café projects (for more details about each project, please see the “Our Stories” section of our website)
