Our philosophy

  • Back to beginnings

    We work passionately towards detail and excellence. We believe in creations with their own personality.
    We don't believe in mass production, the mainstream or soulless things. We design and produce unique spaces and objects, ad hoc to each and every concept. Our spirit reflects artisans from bygone times. And that is obvious.

  • Multidisciplinary vision

    We're a mixed collective of architects, industrial designers, interior designers and graphic artists. Thanks to this mix of views, synergies and disciplines, we enrich each project that we undertake. There are no intermediaries, conceptual clashes, eternal time frames or hidden costs. There's an idea and a team that strives to make it happen.
    We do everything. Easy, isn't it?
  • Global spirit

    We don't believe in strict structures. Our international network of partners tailors to and grows with the needs of each project, enriching it with their know-how and personal experiences. It's amazing what can be done with a laptop and a WiFi connection from any corner of the world.
    Talent doesn't comprehend physical barriers. Neither do we.
  • Ethics & Aesthetics

    Our designs stem from the idea of meeting the physical (spatiality, comfort, functionality) and spiritual (beauty, aesthetic, harmony) needs of the people who inhabit them. We're the reflection of our times, our society and its diversity. When we undertake a project, we abide by and respect the cultural references, history and customs of its geographical framework.
    The three cornerstones of our work are client, user and environment.
  • Like talking to a friend

    Flexibility is one of the cornerstones of our way of thinking. There are no physical or mental barriers. We like to sit next to you to listen to your ideas and needs, thereby involving you in the processes. May our projects also be yours.
    We firmly believe in communicating with our clients.
  • Thinking small to do great things

    No project is too big or too small. There are ideas and a flexible structure that adapts. From private clients to big companies, the soul doesn't understand volume. That's why we do everything from private properties to hotels, restaurants and retail spaces.
    Our experience endorses us. Our heart distinguishes us.
  • From the abstract to the specific

    You may have the brightest idea, but what is it good for if you can't make it tangible? Our contacts and our experience in production mean that we can make things happen as we want, while always respecting the original concept. Otherwise, our work would lose all meaning.
    This is the only way for a project to be perfect.
  • Who's behind all of this?

    Like so many good things in life, ILMIODESIGN stemmed from a chance encounter. That of the architect Michele Corbani and the industrial designer Andrea Spada. Italians by birth and citizens of the world, they decided to form their own studio after a prestigious career at various architecture and interior design studios. Both graduates from the Polytechnic University of Milan, they have taken their talent from Spain to the international stage.
