Alessandro La Spada is one of the most eclectic, daring interior designers in Italy who frequently contributes to sectors that require a significant dose of creativity: from luxury furniture to lighting, leather goods, home accessories, custom motorbikes, objects and visual design.
Curious, experimental and attracted by the merger of art, design and ancient crafts, he boasts a great professional experience along with historical furniture brands such as Visionnaire, Smania, La Murrina, Illulian rugs, Besana, Longhi and Milldue; companies specialized in natural stone processing such as Antolini and young furniture brands like Clan Milano.
Alessandro has always been fascinated by the emotional side of objects and by intense material research intended as an introspective investigation.
His projects are united by the same common thread, condensing dreamlike suggestions, attention to detail, luxury and experimental functionality.
He likes to label himself a self-taught artist, with the air of a craftsman rather than a designer, even though he has taught furniture design for years at the IDI’AC Interior Design Institute and held workshops at the Domus Academy.
La Spada boasts dozens of active collaborations with prestigious furnishing brands, for which he designs intense, passionate collections, interpreting the clients’ taste without sacrificing his creative personality and his proud Italian – Southern origins.
He has created numerous exhibition design projects, including FIAT’s London showroom in 2007, the Visionnaire, Antolini, Smania, Longhi, Milldue and Clan Milano stands at several editions of the Salone del Mobile and the windows of the Boscolo Hotel in Milan for La Murrina in 2015 and IFDM in 2016.
Alessandro knows how to seduce and impress with sophisticated, expressive arrangements in which containers and contents harmoniously interact in a crescendo of irreverent, alternative stylistic contaminations.
“Space is a challenge, not a constraint”: this is how he expresses his constant enthusiasm for design and choice of organic and industrial materials, shaping exclusive, refined living environments, ranging from the tranquil shores of Lake Garda to the social spaces of a luxury Milanese hotel, to the cold latitudes of St. Petersburg.
