BORN PARIS, FRANCE, 1980

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 REVEAL THE POETRY IN THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SCALE, LIGHT, AND SPACE. Balzano’s aesthetic vocabulary draws inspiration from the timeless beauty of venice, Rome, and Florence, where he spent much of his childhood. 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

Dedicated to the highest level of craftsmanship that stands the test of time, Balzano works closely with master artisans at atelier saint-jacques and la societe STRs to create each exquisite work. In strictly limited edition, signed, and numbered, balzano’s finest collections are available exclusively at studiotwentyseven

AFTER STUDYING ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN AT PENNINGHEN, BALZANO JOINED THE FAMED STUDIO OF JOSEPH DIRAND, working on prestigious projects around the world. IN 2018, HE OPENED HIS eponymous atelier WHILE CONTINUING HIS WORK AS AN INTERIOR ARCHITECT

Quadrato ii collection

Pristine and elegant, BAlzano’s quadratO ii Collection is keenly considered meditation on purity in design. Recalling early bauhaus design principles with a contemporary minimalist edge, each piece is a restrained study of proportion. With deceptive simplicity, the collection creates a rich dialogue between presence, absence, materiality, and the void. Aptly taking its name from the Italian word for square, it embodies the symbolic meanings of that perfect geometry, bringing structure, balance, logic, and stability into any space

Each piece in the collection is finished in a stunning ivory leather and is handmade by fine French craftsmen at atelier saint-jacques in strictly limited edition
