Architect Maurizio Lai’s is a journey through architecture, design and scenography, following his education and experience. From his beginnings in television, to the creation of his first architecture and art atelier, up to the foundation of LAISTUDIO, a dynamic, multidisciplinary and constantly updated firm. A tension towards the ephemeral, where matter plays with light, intrinsically characterizes Lai's work over time. Lines that are obsessively orthogonal, light installations and infinity mirrors dress space with pictorial intensity, defining illusory perceptions that are at times indecipherable. Reflection, refraction, diffusion. A dynamic light, the expression of a personal language, becomes matter, a building element of the project capable of changing the emotional conditions of physical space. An indirect light capable of exploring and defining delimited spaces, excavating and shaping surfaces, modeling volumes and revealing atmospheres.

Maurizio Lai

Architect, scenographer and designer Maurizio Lai was born in Padua, he studied Architecture at the Faculty of Architecture in Venice and at the Politecnico in Milan, where he graduated. He started his career as set designer for national TV broadcasters, while designing for the show business and fashion industry, rapidly extending to the retail and residential sector in Italy and abroad. In 1998 he founded LAISTUDIO in Milan, a multidisciplinary firm that develops constant synergies between architecture and design, which determine the execution of rather impacting concepts. An original interpreter of contemporary aesthetics, his style has been described as one of the most interesting in the Italian contemporary scene. His work has been published in the most authoritative Architecture and Design magazines.

A journey through architecture, design and scenography, where matter plays with light: this is Maurizio Lai’s journey.

Lorenzo Guzzini explores and experiences space, investigating form, light and time through the tensions between the elements.

Re-Habitare, re-inhabiting the planet, as a process of research and change, a modus operandi and a transversal approach to the project.
