Enrico Baleri

Italy (1942)

Born in Bergamo, Italy, Enrico Baleri made his first mark on the design world as a creative entre­pre­neur in 1965. He left his formal educa­tion behind to open the Bergamo Baleri Design­ers, a furni­ture house that cele­brated works from avant-garde design­ers. He went on to estab­lish Pluri in 1968, an exper­i­men­tal design center. While at Pluri he collab­o­rated with Flos to design light­ing fixtures, as well as Gavina and Knoll Inter­na­tional (design­ing tables for both). In 1979 he moved on tofound­ing Alias where Baleri served as the artis­tic direc­tor for 4 years. A constant advo­cate for design­ers, he devel­oped Baleri Italia in 1984, a publish­ing company that high­lighted the collec­tions of up and coming furni­ture design­ers, includ­ing that of Philippe Starck and Hans Hollein. In 2004, Baleri devel­oped the Enrico Baleri Research Center in collab­o­ra­tion with Maril­isa Baleri Decimo and Luigi Baroli. His legacy contin­ues to bring modern design to the fore­front of the public eye.
