Matteo Ragni was born in Milan in 1972. He took a degree in Architecture at the Milan Polytechnic. Since 1994 he has focused on design in a wide range of industrial and crafts contexts, concentrating on questions of function combined with typological innovation. He has worked for many companies, often mixing hisactivity as a designer with the role of creative director, creating perfectly synchronized systems of communication and production.
His working relationships with Italian and international producers have allowed him to construct a modus operandi that adapts to the background and history of each individual brand, in the conviction that this is the only way for the role of the designer to take on an ethical character, contributing to true evolution.Matteo Ragni is twice winner of the “Compasso d’Oro” prize (2001, 2014), in 2008 he wins the Wallpaper Design Award, in 2012 he wins the National Award for Innovation "Premio dei Premi", a prestigious award given by the Presidency of the Italian Republic. In 2015 he wins the Good Design Award prize. Well as being adesigner he works also as a teacher, art director and architect.
