Matteo Thun, architect and designer, was born and raised in the bilingual German and Italian speaking region of South Tyrol, Italy. Following his studies with Oskar Kokoschka and Emilio Vedova at the Salzburg Academy he graduated with a degree in Architecture from the University in Florence. He co-founded the ‘Memphis’ group in Milan in 1981 with Ettore Sottsass and opened his own architecture and design studio in Milan, in 1984.
The Matteo Thun Milano’s projects are inspired by timeless simplicity and centred on the human scale. Founded in 1984, the company is operating internationally in the hospitality, healthcare, residential, offices and retail sectors and product design.
“Our strategy is different: it’s called timeless. We believe that good design means simplicity, sustainability and long-lasting style.”
