Matteo Thun

A pupil of Oskar Kokoschka and Emilio Vedova at the Salzburg Academy and graduate of the University of Florence, Matteo’s formative professional years were spent under the guardianship of Ettore Sottsass. Together, they co-founded the globally renowned Memphis Group in 1981.

Several years a professor in ceramic design at the Vienna University of Applied Arts and creator of era-defining pieces, Matteo founded his eponymous design studio in 1984 where he would establish himself as one of his generation’s most influential voices and talents.

From his headquarters in Milan and Munich, Matteo continues to nurture an architecture and design practice that strives to create respectful and long-lasting solutions through a future orientated lens.
