Born in 1974, Stefano Bigi grew up in France and Italy. The two different cultures left him with a taste for the chic and the beautiful. After studying Art in France, he started a career in graphic and web design. However, in almost 10 years in the field he never stopped drawing sofas, chairs and decorative objects. It was not until he turned 31 that he decided to embrace his great passion and start designing furniture and decorative objects. In 2005 he moved to Milan and started his own firm: Helldesign by Stefano Bigi.
