The group Matteo Thun & Partners, a leader in the field of architecture and interior design, has been rewarded for designing the JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa, in Venice, and on the event “Il Salone del Mobile” 2016 (The Furniture Showroom), launches a new brand: Matteo Thun Atelier (www.matteothunatelier.com).
Our beautiful country never fails to produce great minds and beyond measurement skills. A significant example is given by Matteo Thun, architect and designer born in Bolzano in 1952, boasting a remarkable academic and professional background. After his studies in Milan and Salzburg, he became co-founder of the Memphis group, and partner of Sottsass Associati design studio. He also worked for Swatch, and lectured as a university professor in Vienna. In 1984 he opened his own studio.
Perhaps the most important turning point for his career took place in 2001, founding the Matteo Thun & Partners, together with Luca Colombo and Antonio Rodriguez. With the help of about 60 employees, the company is involved in implementing high quality projects in the field of architecture, design and interior design.
Throughout these years, the group Matteo Thun & Partners has achieved many important objectives in the field of architecture and interior design. A recent example? The design of the wonderful JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa, luxury resort which, along with other 230 projects, was nominated for the MIPIM Award 2016, and winning the Best Hotels & Tourism Resort award in Cannes. It is a resort surrounded by nature and built on an artificial island in the lagoon of Venice, in a luxurious and lovely setting. This resort makes you dream on a big scale: 230 suites, panoramic restaurant, rooftop swimming pool in the main building, plus a few other buildings hosting secondary suites, swimming pools and spa. All the structure is surrounded by beautiful gardens, an orchard and an olive grove. The resort is characterized by elegant lines, very tasteful furnishings in perfect harmony with the surrounding area and, above all, by a very low environmental impact: this is what the group Matteo Thun & Partners is capable of.
Many years of experience in design, an unwavering teamwork that is renewed now for over 30 years, a particular focus on sustainable architecture: these are the main features of Matteo Thun & Partners. All this has given birth to Matteo Thun Atelier, the new group’s brand through where shines all the desire to take up the ancient craft traditions.
Creations are exclusively hand made: pieces of furniture, decorative objects and lighting, for private or accommodation, a perfect combination of design and Italian craftsmanship. This collection offers a lot more to the buyer: the ability to donate to the objects purchased its own identity. Each piece, in fact, can be customized in order to fit perfectly in the philosophy and identity of the brand that purchases it.
Matteo Thun Atelier has made its debut in the design world on the occasion of the event “Salone del Mobile 2016”, just ended in Milan. There were presented collections of Chiavari chairs, and the series “Coloring Vase”, unique, creative and original pieces.
Matteo Thun Atelier is just more than items, we are talking about sheer art form.
