Michele Romani and Mauro Saccani were both born in Milan. They graduated in Architecture at the Politecnico in Milan after completing their secondary education in Industrial Design at Monza's Art College.
In 1999 they established their own studio as associates, specialising in product design. They work with lighting and furnishing companies carrying out projects for exhibition displays and architectural interiors. Their creative pursuit seeks to define a "strong, identifying mark", which is also conceptually simple and therefore easy to understand. The result is a high quality item, which is also pure in terms of functionality and looks.
In 1999 they became members of the Milan's Industrial Design Association. Some of their projects have been recommended by the Research group I.DoT '06/07, Italian Design on Tour, for being amongst the best Italian-manufactured design works. Their Diadema lamp, manufactured by Vetreria Vistosi was short-listed for the 21st edition of the Compasso d'Oro award by the 2006 ADI Design Index.
Their creations have been published in trade journals such as Domus, Abitare, Corriere della Sera's supplement CasAmica, Ottagono, Design Diffusion News, Box, BravaCasa, GdA and Spazio Casa.
