C'è qualcosa di più grande delle differenze tra noi due: la stessa
sul fare e pensare il design italiano.

Il mondo del progetto indagato attraverso un approccio creativo in cui l’immaginazione conta quanto il rigore funzionale ed il controllo in tutte le fasi realizzative. Così dal 2006 Fabio Calvi e Paolo Brambilla lavorano insieme ad architetture d’interni (residenze private, uffici e negozi), allestimenti e
design del prodotto.
In un panorama creativo in cui le tendenze portano all’uniformità del senso estetico, la personalità dello studio Calvi Brambilla si esprime sempre a sorpresa, ponendo al centro il racconto e comunicando con la massima efficacia i prodotti. Dal 2019 Fabio Calvi e Paolo Brambilla sono stati nominati Design Curator di Flos, azienda di illuminazione di design. Dal 2023 ricoprono il ruolo di Art Director del brand storico Zanotta.
