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

Commedia COLLECTION

The commedia collection by balzano is a subtle and ingenious exploration of the artist’s signature interest in the interplay between the classical and the contemporary. Paying homage to greco-roman antiquity, the collection is stark, sleek, and boldly geometric. Named for and Recalling the masks of the italian theatrical practice of commedia dell’arte, each work invites us to imbue it with our own interpretation

Like the famous masks, these works are vessels that allow reflection on the drama and comedy of everyday life. Dark and elegiac, the commedia collection is also playful, toying with the viewer’s sense of perspective and dimensionality, raising questions about reality, pretense, and the construction of meaning. Each work is a stage for the viewer to fill with expressivity and vivacity

Meticulously crafted in sumptuous black oak by fine artisans in france, each work in the collection is in a strictly limited edition of twelve and is signed by the artist. With its singular vision and flawless execution, the commedia collection is a bravura display of balzano’s ability to interpret history with both intellect and emotion to bespeak something ineffable about contemporary life
