The Aksu/Suardi studio was founded in 2001 by turkish Sezgin Aksu, a designer who studied in Germany and France, and by italian architect Silvia Suardi who graduated at Milan Polytechnic and studied also in Spain. They cooperated for over ten years with Michele de Lucchi’s studio and they worked on interior design, set up of exhibits, art and graphic design. The diversity in their culture and studies is the strong element which binds them in a very particular design approach. Aksu teaches at IED and NABA in Milano and Suardi also holds some design lectures in various Italian universities. The studio won some international awards like Red Dot Design Award, Design Award USA, Design Turkey Award, Design Nominee (Germany).
