About

The entire production is made in Italy, in the Milan area, using the great potential of the well-known crafts and industrial workers as well as expressing the historical-design characteristics of the territory.

Nicola Gisonda

Born in Milan, he graduated at the Polytechnic University of Milan.
His activity ranges from architecture projects in the redevelopment of the building heritage mainly into Milan area to industrial design, from the concept for public places to interior furnishings.
In the last few years, he has devoted himself in particular to the redevelopment of disused industrial areas, seizing the needs of Milan, a city in constant transformation. Among the best known projects there is: Officine del Volo.
The desire to be able to better express his design thought without constraints, flows into the creation of Mentemano.
Clear and rigorous lines are his distinctive trait, the file rouge that makes all his projects recognizable.
The decoration is replaced by carefully studied details that enhance and highlight an experimental approach in the choice of techniques and materials. His works thus acquire a considerable expressive force that supports furnishings with a well-defined character.
Structure and matter are the protagonists and the interest in the properties and the potential of every material are at the center of its design, which always combines aesthetics and functionality.

Concept

The products of Mentemano, with a strong and easily recognizable character, are expressed through minimal lines with a strong attention to detail, finishes and materials.
A continuous research aimed at experimentation leads to the union of different materials for each furniture, emphasizing its aesthetics and functionality.
The products realization is deliberately entrusted to artisanal and industrial workers in the Lombardy region, which in every product guarantee quality and the unique Made in Italy.
The furnishings, being attentive to trends, have an own identity that lasts over time.
