Francesco Rota is an interior and product designer based in Milan. Graduated in product design at Art Center College of Design in 1994, La Tour de Peilz (Switzerland), and in 1998 opened his own studio in Milano where he doesn't limit his work within only one field. The secret to his long-lasting success lies in the wide scope of his interests: product, furniture, lighting, showrooms, offices, residential interiors, events, etc. In 2013 he was appointed creative director of Lapalma. Apart from introducing new products for the brand, he aims at strengthening their positions in the most demanding world markets – Europe, North America and the far East.

The original building was built in 1906 which has allowed for a stunning warehouse style fit-out. As a 3-level standalone character brick building many of the original architectural features that make this building so unique have been kept or highlighted throughout.
To complement and enhance the heritage architectural space is our own contemporary furniture arranged beautifully over the 3 levels – many of the products on display are both designed and manufactured in Australia.
