CASINI STUDIO®, a registered trademark of Luca Casini, develops product design and industrial design projects for more technical products or consumer goods in collaboration with clients’ marketing and R&D departments. While “Luca Casini Design Studio” develops products for other industrial contexts requiring a more subjective input from a designer who puts his own signature to a product (see link at the top right of the menu).
CASINI STUDIO is not big but it’s very efficient. Set up in 1997, it’s in central Milan, a dynamic city geared to creativity, with countless cultural initiatives in the fields of design, fashion, furnishing and art from which to draw new energy and information from day to day.
The Studio provides consulting on analysis, definition and development of product aesthetics and morphology and many other aspects of product design, generating ideas, new proposals or styling and helping the client with the multiple issues involved in organizing and implementing a project. 3D CAD is constantly integrated in this process to provide clear visualization of work in the various development stages, down to the exporting of surfaces or solids for prototyping and for detailed engineering refined by producers. The Studio also acts as a link between Marketing and Research & Development, often providing graphics and other technical material useful for communication between a company’s management and its production or product development departments in different geographical zones, thus simplifying the process.
Photorealistic rendering or sketches are also used by clients for marketing tests or studies in the initial, intermediate or final phases of the project. The Studio has also provided real-time sketching services in the project definition phases, with work groups organized by marketing departments.
The Studio has worked on projects for a vast range of product categories in various sectors, mainly with industries in Germany, the United States and Italy and their partners in other countries.
To back up its industrial design work, the Studio also offers design services for interfaces, graphics, illustrations and packaging, as well as product rendering services. It has also done research for clients planning to produce sample collections in specific contexts.
A key priority is absolute confidentiality on every project, a fundamental requisite which, along with professionalism, dedication and creativity, has enabled the Studio to develop collaborative relationships lasting for over 20 years with major international industrial groups and contribute to the success of many projects.
