Born in Padua in Italy in 1952, Paolo Scagnellato graduated from the Venice School of Architecture in 1976 with the architect Aldo Rossi as master of thesis. He began his career working with famous architects Gaetano and Annina Croce, experienced in the restoration and design and more specifically in the area of the contract and office furniture. In 1981 he opened his own workshop in cooperation with the architect Lorenzo Negrello. With more than fifteen successful collaborations with manufacturers of European rank, Paolo Scagnellato counts to his credit several award-winning creations.
In these designs he favours the use of advanced materials and technologies, putting them at the service of ergonomics and design, while ensuring their industrial feasibility of compliance and cost containment.
Paolo Scagnellato has designed the highly successful range Dream and its successor Dream +.
