Gentile Design Studio
Product Design – Art Direction – Exhibition Design

Paolo Stefano Gentile

I deal with product design and art direction in Milan, the city where I live. I graduated in product design from Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in 2019, the year in which I started collaborating with professional studios and developing personal projects. In 2020 Elle Decor included me in the list of the 30 best young international talents, the following year I was included in the selection of young international talents by Magazine For Living. My projects have been published in the main magazines and exhibited in events such as Dutch Design Week, EDIT Napoli, Maison & Objet, Milan Design Week and others.

Mi occupo di product design e art direction a Milano, città in cui vivo. Mi sono laureato in product design alla Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano nel 2019, anno in cui ho iniziato a collaborare con studi professionali e a sviluppare progetti personali. Nel 2020 Elle Decor mi ha inserito nella lista dei 30 migliori giovani talenti internazionali, l’anno successivo sono stato incluso nella selezione dei giovani talenti internazionali di Magazine For Living. I miei progetti sono stati pubblicati sulle principali riviste del settore ed esposti in eventi quali Dutch Design Week, EDIT Napoli, Maison & Objet, Milan Design Week e altri.

“…si intravedono i segni nei suoi pochi ma intensi progetti. Che sembrano tutti nascere da un’attenta riflessione sul senso non solo del disegnare, ma di trasformare la materia in un gesto che accarezza la coscienza. Per divertire.
Paola Carimati
