Marco Carini was born in 1968 and graduated as interior designer at the Istituto di Arredamento e Architettura d’Interni in Cremona.
He has made Mies van der Rohe's motto "I do not want to be interesting, I want to be good" his own and, in his work, he constantly explores, in his daily desire to find the right solution mixing the best materials and the most suitable components. His architecture is a way to turn poetic, the flow, sometimes prosaic, of life.
His intervention is tailored to meet a specific need, listening to customers, absorbing their needs, and working the spaces in a harmonious way.
Marco Carini also creates design elements: over the years he has been responsible for the design of Porro showroom and a lighting projects consultant for Davide Groppi.
Working with Granorte since 2016.
