Ordine Architetti Lecco n. 502

Laureato in architettura nel 1984 con il professor Marco Zanuso, quando ancora la sua cattedra si chiamava “Progettazione artistica per l’industria”, Massimo Farinatti ha iniziato il suo percorso professionale durante gli studi, operando come freelance presso studi ed atelier di spicco della realtà creativa milanese.

Nel 1985 fonda Triplano Associati, studio attraverso il quale opera negli ambiti dell’ architettura e dell’ industrial design.

Nel 1992 e nel 1994 “crea” i suoi progetti più belli in assoluto: Federico e Luca.

Nel 1997 apre lo studio che porta il suo nome, trasferendo la base operativa prima in Brianza, poi a Milano, dove attualmente opera.

Ha insegnato Industrial Design presso l’International College of Design and Arts, la Camera della Moda, la Scuola Politecnica di Design, il Politecnico di Milano, dove collabora attualmente come Cultore della Materia.

Dal 1983 è socio ADI dove, negli anni, ha ricoperto diversi incarichi: ne è stato membro dei Probiviri, è stato membro del Comitato Direttivo di Fondazione ADI Collezione Compassso d’Oro; dal 2012 è coordinatore del comitato di coordinamento dei Progettisti; dal 2011 è delegato alle relazioni esterne nel Comitato direttivo di ADI Lombardia del quale è Vicepresidente ed è  coordinatore dell’ Osservatorio Permanente del Design di ADI Lombardia.

Negli anni, ha focalizzato la sua attività sull’architettura d’interni e sull’’industrial design, collaborando con le maggiori aziende del settore per dar vita nuove tipologie di prodotto, così come a nuovi modi di vivere l’ambiente.

I lavori che escono dal suo Studio declinano aspirazioni e desideri dei clienti in progetti sostenuti da una rigorosa base metodologica e da una solida visione di risorse e tecnologie disponibili, dando vita ad architetture e prodotti destinati a durare nel tempo.

Lo studio

Una struttura leggera e flessibile, dove coordinamento, metodo progettuale, amore per il dettaglio e una rete di competenze in varie discipline permettono di dare risposte personalizzate e di qualità, rapide e competitive, in un mercato sempre più complesso.

As architectural interpretations of light, his projects occupy the space of desires. Much more than just a functional answer, his projects are a manifestation of being tuned in to the messages and signs from a continuously evolving socio-cultural collection of ideas, ready to explode from the depths to create new islands, new worlds and new ways of doing things. The character of his creations draws on the everyday, transforming habits into new experiences. With my works, objects take on the spirit necessary to live among the sum of the parts in a holistic system aimed at bettering the quality of the man lives.
His ability to combine the vision of the present and the aspirations of the user with manufacturing realities and available technological resources makes for products that look to a better future.
