Born in the Italian city of Turin, scenario of the impressive Italian contribution in industrial design,
Ivan Paradisi rediscovers the art of wood crafting from a totally new perspective. Straight lines and
modern inlay take life on different layers and curves cut out of precious wood kinds. Each piece,
entirely crafted by hand by Ivan himself is designed bearing in mind the grace of the ancient Italian
tradition in cabinetmaking but with a new, sophisticated vision of space.
A musician and singer, Ivan Paradisi starts his career in the world of furniture by restoring
important pieces. A passion for wood, its simplicity and ductility, make him design his own pieces.
His works have been exhibited at the Venice Biennale in Turin, Italian Pavillon (2012) and have
been awarded of the Artisan Excellence Award. He has also participated to the Fuorisalone, in
Milan (April 2016) with a dedicated exhibition at the Fondazione Gianfranco Ferré.
He is now collaborating with Nilufar Gallery in Milan.
