People Duilio Forte



The work of AtelierFORTE ranges from land art to architecture, from sculpture to design, but also drawing, painting, photography and video. All these elements contribute to defining a new style: ArkiZoic. Duilio Forte is known by the Design Week visitors for his Sleipnir Troll Mini, the small mythological animals used as prize for the winners of the Milan Design Award. His studio is a magical place where one can lose himself among details and huge zoomorphic sculptures.



At Fuorisalone I discovered the amazing abundance of hidden places inside Milan.
