Achille Salvagni was born in Rome in 1970 and founded his architectural and interior design firm, Salvagni Architetti in 2002. Having established himself as a leading voice in contemporary design he opened Achille Salvagni Atelier in 2013, a studio devoted to the research, development and production of his limited edition furniture and lighting. In 2015, he further expanded his practice to a London flagship Atelier at 12 Grafton Street, Mayfair before moving to a larger space at 1A Grafton Street in 2020. Salvagni has received critical acclaim for his designs which are at once boldly contemporary and evocative of his Roman heritage, taking inspiration from classical mythology and the timeless elegance of the art-deco period. His award-winning works grace luxury residences and superyachts across the globe. Salvagni’s iconic work has been shown at PAD London in 2018 and 2019; PAD Genève in 2018 and 2019; PAD Monaco in 2019. He additionally held a solo show with Galleria O. Giustini Stagetti, Rome in 2017. Salvagni was listed by AD Collector in 2015 as one of the 100 best designers of the year and was also included in the Elle Decor USA A-list from 2015-2018. Key works by Salvagni have achieved notable results in recent auctions at Sotheby’s and Piasa, and have been acquired by luminaries from the worlds of business, fashion, art and music. The first monograph dedicated to his work was published by Rizzoli New York in October 2019.
