Product Service System

Fabrizio Pierandrei graduated in Architecture in Genoa and began his career with Renzo Piano in 1987, where he worked on international projects until 1994. In 1997 he founded Pierandrei Associati promoting a holistic approach to the Architecture which disregards the boundaries between design fields, gathers methodologies and tools from different disciplines and fosters the necessity of cutting edge research on technological, social and behavioral features. His skills range from metadesign, to behavioral research, from concept design to detail in architecture, interiors, product, service and strategic design. Since 1997 he collaborates with the Politecnico di Milano, where he is actually in charge of the Final Design Studio in the PSSD Master Course. In 2012 he founded PACO Design Collaborative, an innovative network of professionals whose projects explore the potential of Design and Education in fostering social innovation, sustainable behaviors and business opportunities, recently granted by the European Commission for a four year international project on tools for human empowerment.
