Born in the Italian lakes region, Mike Simonelli has always seen design as a constant incentive to get involved in life and solve problems.
His Italian and Swiss-German dual heritage has always had a strong influence on his work as a designer, allowing him to find solutions in a rational way but never forgetting the importance of aesthetics. After completing his Bachelor’s degree in Product Design in Milan, Mike moved to London looking for opportunities to broaden his cultural horizons.
Mike’s London journey started as an interior designer working across many renowned brands at Harrods and at the Conran shop. After completing his MA in Industrial Design at Central Saint Martins he joined Jones&Partners, a London based design studio.
