WE DON’T DESIGN
The studio was founded and is currently directed by Francesco Meneghello, a 27-year-old Italian designer native of Bassano del Grappa, a small city in the North-East of Italy. He graduated in Industrial Design at IAAD, in Turin, completing his academic path with a thesis developed with Gessi and focused on the contamination between an object and its context. The same year he moved to Copenhagen, where he started a partnership with Mikal Harrsen and worked for MA/U Studio, one of the most progressive Danish brands, now part of the Boffi group. The year after he came back to Italy to present Atelier12, a new Italian brand for bathroom furniture, and launch the first award-winning collection Abisso. He collaborated for a few years with Davide Lanfranco, developing several projects. In 2016 he founded WE DON’T DESIGN, a new design studio with the aim of proposing alternative and original solutions. In 2017 he moved the studio to Milan, gathering a team of young and international designers to expand the business abroad. He’s now the Creative Director of Atelier12 and works for many Italian and European brands within a wide range of design fields.
