An architect whose furniture designs have helped to shape the direction of Giorgetti since 1996, Chi Wing Lo was among the Italian Delegates to advance Italian Design in Russia. His aspiration for timelessness has brought his collections to worldwide attention and many of his work continue to be much sought after today. His architectural and design works have been awarded, exhibited and published internationally. In 2007, he was invited by the Hong Kong Government to contribute a design to commemorate the tenth anniversary of unification with China. The same year, the Radio Television Hong Kong broadcast a documentary of his life and work. Lo was Art Director of Giorgetti S.p.A. from 2004 to 2006, and the chairman of the jury for the St. Petersburg Design Biennale 2009.
