Marco Poletti


Milano / Italy

"My work is a constantly evolving journey between Design and Architecture. My DNA is a dynamic balance between designer and architect whose only reference point is to give life to a creative idea through interpretations with a strong emotional impact, whether they are space, surface or volume.
I am lucky to have been born and work in a country like Italy, where creative and artistic forms have always created Made in Italy, genetically modified its DNA making it unique and exclusive in the world."
Marco Poletti was born in Novara in 1968, graduated in Architecture at the Milan Polytechnic and in 1995 began his professional activity. In 1997 he opened Marco Poletti Studio.
Over the years he has collaborated with important brands in the fashion sector (Cerruti, Christian Dior, Ermenegildo Zegna, Ferrè, Mandarina Duck, Missoni, Valentino and Zara), consumer goods (Barilla, Bialetti, Olivetti, Sony and Wind) and furnishings (Albatros, Besana, Bongio, Catalano, Cerasa, De Vecchi, Faraone, GiustiPortos, Geromin Group, Huber, MD Studio, SevesGlasblock, Tre-P&Tre-Più and Jacuzzi). Among the results there are over 700 designed products, 50 interior and contract projects abroad (in particular Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and the Emirates), over 160 sets and more than 2500 publications. Today he collaborates with Renco S.p.a., one of the most important Italian general contractors.

Cersaie will be followed by more than 30 important international fairs (Milan, Bologna, London, Frankfurt, Dubai, New York) with more than 300 partner companies.
"Italy has always, in its historicity, been the country where the concept of ideal beauty originated, where excellence and values of a different nature, contaminating and modifying themselves, have given life to Made in Italy, and over time, have genetically evolved, making its DNA unique and exclusive worldwide."
In 2020, the year of the 25th anniversary of his work, he opens the first permanent DNA MADE IN ITALY location in Kazakhstan, Almaty, and is awarded the position of Design Ambassador by the Italian Embassy Nur Sultan and by ADI for the Italian Design Days Italian in Kazakhstan.
