Born in 1974, Stefano Bigi grew up between France and Italy. Out of this double culture, he has acquired a taste for the chic and the beautiful. After studying at Art School, he started a career in web design within an SSII before becoming self-employed. It was 14 years ago that he first began to sketch sofas, decorative objects, and his obsession: chairs. However, when he turned 31 he decided to live for his passion: to design furniture and decorative objects. Since 2005 he has established himself in Milan and founded his own company: Stefano Bigi design studio
