Tiziano Vudafieri obtained his degree in Architecture in 1985 at the University of Venice, under the scholarship of Aldo Rossi, one of the world’s 20th century architectural masters. Immediately after university he moved to Milan, where he entered the Ettore Sottsass studio, Sottsass Associati. At that time design master Ettore Sottsass’ fame was at its peak and the Sottsass Associati studio was one of the hottest spots in furniture design, interior design and architecture worldwide. In the office of who is considered to be the most influential designer in the second half of the 20th century, Vudafieri started as assistant, ending his experience in 1989 as project leader.During those 4 years, he had been collaborating or leading challenging and cutting-edge projects in Europe and the United States, from private houses to retail spaces. In this period, he started experiencing the design of fashion retail spaces, managing the designs of the Esprit (U.S.A. sportswear brand) stores in Switzerland, Germany and Denmark. During those years, his projects had been widely published in international design magazines. His name and his contribution to the Esprit store design is also included in “Esprit, the Corporate Image”, the milestone book on corporate store design printed in 1989. In 1989, he joined designer Aldo Cibic (former partner at Sottsass Associati) at Cibic & Partners. From 1989 to 1994, he had been partner of Aldo Cibic in this office where, beyond architectural, private interior and hotel designs, he continued his experience in fashion store design. During those 5 years, he was responsible for the Pepe Jeans London headquarters and store concepts (U.S.A. and United Kingdom), and David People Stores (Turkey). In late 1994 he founded his own company, Studio Vudafieri, later to become Vudafieri Saverino Partners.
