Profile

Since 2001, Marcomini Marconato Architecture and Design operates in several fields: new buildings, renewals, refurbishments, interior design and furnishings. After more than a decade of professional practice, the Firm now boasts a considerable expertise in the design of residential and commercial buildings, wellness and entertainment spaces and exhibition settings. The Firm specializes in interior design, lighting design and customized décor and furnishings for private or commercial clients. In 2015, as a natural evolution of its design work, Marcomini Marconato has founded its own brand, producing décor and accessories for interior decoration and lighting: Les First – Design Made in Italy.

Mission & Vision

Experimentation, a blend of practicality and imaginativeness, tailor-made design, and a knack for uniqueness are the mainstays of MarcominiMarconato’s philosophy, offering since 2001 high-quality spaces defined by light. MM filters European Modernism through the American experience, to create its own flexible approach, fusing boldness and harmony, context-awareness and individuality, in an Italian style with a cosmopolitan attitude.
For living, wellness or leisure, fashion or entertainment, MM creates effortless (but never minimalist) settings, crafted from natural materials – fine marble, wood, glass, metal – and pure forms, enhanced through a skillful use of natural and artificial light. Portrait-spaces, tailored to reflect the client’s individuality, and carefully crafted through each stage of planning and development, become living art of the highest quality, environment-conscious and surprisingly unique.

In 1999 MASSIMO MARCOMINI earned his degree in Architecture from the Università degli Studi di Ferrara. His thesis work focused on reconverting a historic oil mill by the Garda Lake into a spa and cosmetic surgery center. Through his university years Massimo Marcomini met many great names of international design, and under the guide of Achille Castiglioni, Santiago Calatrava, Pierre De Meuron, Ignazio Gardella, Lodovico Barbiano di Belgioioso among others, he began to explore the complex practicalities of design. Ever since founding Marcomini Marconato in 2001, he has been expressing his artistic calling in the fields of architecture, interior design, visual communication and writing. As the Firm’s creative advisor, he crafts design solutions for private dwellings, shops, wellness centers, restaurants, clubs and exhibition settings – equally careful of the Client’s functional requirements and aesthetic needs. Since 2010, pursuing the tradition of high-end Italian craftsmanship, he has been designing and producing high-quality décor and furnishing, in collaboration with Italian artists, designers and companies. In 2015, together with his associate Nadia Marconato, he has founded the Les First – Design Made in Italy brand.

Nadia Marconato after earning her Surveyor’s certificate, and working as an intern with several qualified architectural firms, Nadia Marconato has years of experience as a civil engineering assistant and works supervisor with a large construction company.
In private practice since 1979, she has built her technical expertise collaborating at the development of medical and commercial facilities, as well as production sites for renewable energy. Within Marcomini Marconato, she manages the development stages, and the more strictly technical side of the Firm’s activity: evaluative metric calculations, cost control, projects for productive sites and land registry updates.
