Born in 1971 in Seregno, a small town near Milan, Claudio Cappellini first attended two different art schools that have greatly contributed to his professional training. After completing his studies, his curiosity for the art world led him to travel looking for novelties: a passion present since he was a child at the side of his father from whom he learned the skills in the use of noble materials that today are the basis of the production philosophy of Cornelio Cappellini. Claudio's skills and flair inspire the uniqueness of every single item that becomes the result of the use of many precious and refined finishes and long and accurate processes. His creative mission combined with an artistic feeling allow him to influence each individual product of Cornelio Cappellini.
