modern italian kitchen designer Michele Marcon

Michele Marcon

Born in 1970, Michele Marcon first focused his studies on graphic arts, graduating as Maestro d'Arte and then as Advertising Designer. It wasn’t until later that he specialized in industrial, furniture and interior design, perfecting his craft at the design studio of Lino Codato for twenty years before turning freelance in 2008.

In 2013, Marcon began his relationship with Snaidero by designing “Code Evolution” and “Orange Evolution”, two modern kitchens that would be very well-received at the 2014 Eurocucina trade show in Milan.

Both designs served as updates to two of Snaidero’s most popular kitchen styles and were studied to satisfy the demands of a younger clientele looking for quality, customization and trend appeal. Both concepts afford homeowners the luxury of creating a tailor-made look by playing with a wide range of materials and modular elements – which is what modern kitchen design should be all about.

Marcon’s 2015 designs for Snaidero continue to explore this concept in new ways.  “Loft” presents a mix and match effect of industrial (cement, iron) and raw natural materials (wood), clean lines and improved technology for a kitchen that speaks the language of trendy urban dwellers.

On the other hand, “Opera” is a luxury modern kitchen aimed at a more mature audience. The design gives homage to more traditional handles, while experimenting with austere volume and sizing. Opera’s 120 possible configurations open the door to endless design solutions.
