Marco Acerbis graduated in architecture from Politecnico di Milano in 1998. On graduation he moved to London to work in the offices of Lord Norman Foster and then established his own practice in Italy in 2004. Fascinated by designing at very different scales he quickly moves on to explore with a constant cross over of skills, ideas, tools and technologies all sorts of subjects to achieve a globally designed space. The Vertigo floor lamp, designed for Fontana Arte in 2004, was immediately acknowledged as a best seller and is now included in the Vitra Design Museum's permanent collection. Marco's interest for contemporary issues focuses on sustainable architecture. His studio has completed the design and construction management of two major buildings including the Xeliox Energy Lab and Polins. The Xeliox Energy Lab was the first industrial building to be certified Class A in Italy, while the Polins project received Italy's highest building standard, the CasaClima Class A+.
