Cibic & Partners

Cibic & Partners, one of the most well known Italian design studios, was established in Milan at the end of the eighties. For over ten years it has operated in many parts of the world.
The Studio is a composite reality that by choice and by calling has occupied itself with projects of different nature - ranging from architecture to interiors and from design to multimedia communications.
Cibic and Partners is guided by four partners: Aldo Cibic is the design nucleus of the Studio and along with Luigi Marchetti and Chuck Felton, is closely connected to the work groups that are dedicated to the various projects. Antonella Spiezio is the strategic core of the partnership and is responsible for the organisation, administration of financial and human resources.
 They are supported by a group of architects, interior designers, graphic artists, industrial designers, and a deep network of collaborating consultants of diverse professional and cultural backgrounds.
 The result is an environment where there is an intense exchange of stimulation and energy, and where the principal aim is the realisation of solid and innovative projects.
 The capacity for design and organisation are the two determining factors that make the Studio a creative and reliable partner for major business groups world-wide.
