Born Paris, France, 1979

A designer based in Paris, Balzano creates minimal, absolute, and timeless furniture objects and interiors. He seeks to uncover emotional resonance in the dialogue between shape and material and reveals the poetry in the relationship between scale, light, and space. Guided by the principle that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, Balzano’s work combines noble materials, purity of lines, and hyper-detailed architectural references with everyday functionality. He makes limited edition pieces for select art and design galleries around the world

After studying architecture and design at Penningen, Balzano joined the famed studio of Joseph Dirand. In 2018, he opened his furniture studio while continuing his work as an interior architect
