Alessandro Stabile Design Studio specializes in industrial design and art direction. We interact with firms to develop ideas into an effective design process with the aim of creating products that stand out for their innovation, ethics and elegance.

METHOD

Questioning all that is certain, incentivising technological research to go beyond the current limits and exploring practical improvements, these are the methods for creating original products that outclass what already exists. Ultimately it is about finding a formal synthesis that gives a distinctive slant to the ordinary.

WHAT WE DO AND HOW

We design products with the sole objective of making them people-centred, to be used expressing their full potential, interpreting the contemporary world in aesthetic terms, respecting the environment and the people who come in contact with them.

Chairs, handles, air purifiers, back packs, smart pens, suitcases, electronic locks, small tables, scissors, padlocks, heated towel rails and stools are some of the types of products that we have designed: the multidisciplinary approach is a fundamental value of the studio which makes it possible to always have a versatile view of design.

ART DIRECTION

We also collaborate with companies in defining a strategic vision, to build the brands by outlining a high quality growth path which impacts the product catalogue, identity and communication.

Alessandro Stabile (Milan 1985) set up his studio in 2011. In 2013 the Italian Cultural Institute of New York selected him as one of the ten Top Young Italian Industrial Designers. In 2016 two of his projects won the first and second prizes in Young&Design as two of the best projects presented by an under 35-year-old at the Milan Design Week.  In 2021 the project Chair 1:1 was nominated for the Compasso d’Oro. With more than 40 products included in our catalogue and several patents, we are at present involved in the Creative Direction of four companies and we design for brands such as Moleskine, De’ Longhi and Alessi.

TEAM

The heart of the studio is in Milan where we work on product ideation and development as well as on the creative aspect and relations for art direction.

We have set up a network of top-class professionals who we call on according to need and who we coordinate with for prototyping, product engineering, photography, video, styling, illustration, rendering, animation, copywriting and web marketing.

“Rigorous and eclectic, interested in all fields of the project, Alessandro Stabile is the paradigm of the industrial designer. A successful synthesis of competence and technological versatility, aesthetic sensibility and capacity for innovation.”
Riccardo Bianchi – AD Italia – 07.2019
