Francesco Meneghello

Francesco Meneghello is a 27-year-old Italian designer native of Bassano del Grappa, a small city in the North-East of Italy. He graduated in Industrial Design at IAAD, in Turin, completing his academic path with a thesis developed with Gessi and focused on the contamination between an object and its context. The same year he moved to Copenhagen, where he started a partnership with Mikal Harrsen and worked for MA/U Studio, one of the most progressive Danish brands, now part of the Boffi group. The year after he came back to Italy to present Atelier12, a new Italian brand for bathroom furniture, and launch the first award-winning collection Abisso. He collaborated for a few years with Davide Lanfranco, developing several projects. In 2016 he founded WE DON’T DESIGN, a new design studio with the aim of proposing alternative and original solutions. In 2017 he moved the studio to Milan, gathering a team of young and international designers to expand the business abroad. He’s now the Creative Director of Atelier12 and works for many Italian and European brands within a wide range of design fields. He is sensible to modern art and inspired by whatever is unrestrictedly expressed. Affected by the Peter Pan syndrome, he balances his methodic and rigorous approach with a romantic and childish attitude, which provides him with unexpected and innovative ideas.


For Atelier12 the continuous dialogue between designers, artisans and entrepreneurs is founded on a free planning and strong synergic approach. This guarantees the excellence of our bathroom furniture. Every piece of furniture is created primarily using Italian raw materials, selected considering their long lasting, total reliability and first quality. Atelier12 invests day by day resources and passion in order to improve the handmade and intellectual work of people who are part of an antique tradition, well known as made in Italy, which right in this historical period represents the key for a turning point. We strongly believe in rebel young minds, nonconformists and all the people able to change the world.
