Studio Irvine is a design studio based in Milan and run by the architect Marialaura Rossiello Irvine. Founded in 1988 by British designer James Irvine (1958-2013), the studio remains faithful to his design approach and method in a combination of humor and precision. Based on the idea of design inspired by attention to ethics, the ‘human factor’ and personal interaction (from clients to technicians, workers and consumers), Marialaura Rossiello is instilled with a vision in constant evolution, rooted in the classics of the Italian design school but with a broader international outlook. The cross-disciplinary philosophy pursued by the studio denotes a constant inclination and curiosity towards all types and scales of projects: from the design of a bus to that of a pen, from the art direction of a company to that of launching a new design brand. In its 30-year history, the studio has woven a dense network of interactive relations among “fabbriche del design”, makers, artisans, graphic designers, curators, journalists, photographers and designers. Driven by a diversity of expertise, skills and visions in a common creative process focused on each new specific project. The studio is a place whose rich collection of objects, prototypes, pictures, souvenirs, collections, drawings and history provides a continuing source of inspiration for future design projects. Studio Irvine is the story of a constantly evolving family studio.
