  • denis guidone

    Denis Guidone is a design and architecture studio based in Milan and Tokyo.
    Fascinated by the contrasts between the East and the West, he merges the aesthetics of these two extremes with unconventional and strict precision into an elegant, eye-catching appearance.
    He has won international awards, including the IDA Design Award in Los Angeles.
    He was also given the Bruno Munari Prize by Gillo Dorfles in 2009 at the Triennale di Milano and was selected for the ADI index 2010.
    In 2018 was elected by Triennale of Milan and by Ministry of Foreign Affairs as ambassador of Italian design in the world.
    He has designed for FontanaArte, MAGIS, Roche Bobois, Hidetoshi Nakata, Nava Design, Bolia, MIngardo, Ichendorf, Serax, Projects Watches, Shuji Nakagawa, Shinji Terauchi, Hands on Design, Arita Risogama and other companies in Italy and abroad.
    To me, beauty is something that arises in between the different cultures – this is where I find my inspiration.


    Event Space

    JASMAC AOYAMA was designed by Aldo Rossi, an Italian architect and a winner of the Pritzker Prize which is referred to as “the Nobel of architecture”. Exterior walls use marbles of Bianco Carrara from Italy and Azul Macaubas from Brazil. Yellow side walls and red lattice windows give the building its distinctive look. The authentic Italian architecture also features the entrance with a 12-meter high open ceiling and a dramatic spiral staircase. With its spacious basement floor, the building can be rented out for various events and parties, or a galley/photo studio.
