or Call to Order

Void, designed by Guglielmo Poletti, is a series of tables with a linear profile that has been partially decon­structed and carved out. Suit­able for living and office envi­ron­ments, this addi­tion elevates any space. Thanks to the base’s curva­ture, the objects’ visual percep­tion is altered. Void series includes a low table, stool, bench, and two different consoles.

Guglielmo Poletti

Italy

Italian designer Guglielmo founded his practice in 2016 after graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven, where he earned an MA in Contextual Design. Currently based in Milan, his studio covers a variety of projects that range from custom pieces and limited edition series to collaborations with the industry.

From the very beginning, Poletti has developed a truly consistent language, built around solid criteria. Deeply rooted in a hands-on investigation, his research explores the limits of materials in relation to their use, challenging our perception by questioning the notions of balance, precariousness, and structural strength. Characterized by the extreme purity and apparent simplicity, his elementary constructions stand as metaphors of solved complexity, referencing minimalist sensibilities through their architectural qualities. In his works, the manipulation of subtle details can lead to unexpectedly powerful outcomes, allowing him to achieve a significant impact through minimum interventions. Grounded on a ‘thinking by doing’ philosophy, his approach entails an experimental attitude, where intuition plays a central role to ensure strong coherence within the process.

Poletti’s works have been published and presented internationally, and over the last few years, his studio received commissions by several clients including Galleria Rossana Orlandi, SEEDS London Gallery, Desalto, Decoratori Bassanesi, Arven AS, Wallpaper* Magazine. In 2018 Poletti was selected among the six young designers winners of the Italian ‘Rising Talent Awards’ at MAISON&OBJET in Paris. At the same time he was shortlisted for the ‘Officine Panerai Next Generation Designer of the Year’, part of the 2018 edition of the ‘Wallpaper* Design Awards’. In 2019 he has been nominated ‘Young Talent of the Year’ by Elle Decor Italia, which shortlisted him for the ‘EDIDA – Elle Deco International Design Awards’.
