Denis Santachiara, born in 1950 in Campagnola, in the province of Reggio Emilia, he began his career as a designer in 1980 attracted by the poetic-linguistic potential of the artificial world and new technologies and aesthetic processes that can arise in an industrial environment. He creates works on the border between art and design that are immediately exhibited at the Venice Biennale, Documenta 8 in Kassel, at the Milan Triennale and the Quadriennale in Rome, to name a few. In 1999 he received the Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and in April 2000 he won the Design World. He has collaborated and still collaborates with Italian and foreign companies to design and research new products. Among the many remember Artemis, Baleri Italy, Bang-Olufsen, BPT, Camping, De Padova, Fiat, Foscarini and many others. His works are exhibited at the MOMA in New York, the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in the Louvre in Paris, the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo, the Philadelphia Museum and the Vitra Museum in Berlin.
