Achille Salvagni was born in Rome in 1970. In 2002, he founded Achille Salvagni Architetti and has gained worldwide recognition for his award-winning luxury residences and super-yachts.
In 2013, alongside his architectural practice, he founded Achille Salvagni Atelier, a studio devoted to the production of his limited-edition furniture and lighting. Following the success of the Atelier in both Italy and the USA, Salvagni opened Achille Salvagni Atelier at 1a Grafton Street in London and 817 Madison Avenue in New York to showcase his latest creations.
The London Atelier draws from a selection of Salvagni’s iconic pieces and places them in an intimate domestic environment allowing collectors and design aficionados to experience in person the uncompromising craftsmanship that goes into each work. Using only the noblest materials; mahogany, rosewood, royal oak, laurel, onyx, bronze and gold to name just some, the works are realised by Rome’s rich collection of skilled artisans renowned for their traditional techniques found in the Vatican City and amongst the cabinet makers of the Quirinal Palace. Continuing this legacy, even the smallest details of the Atelier’s works are the result of an exacting attention to detail, scrupulous craftsmanship and historical reflection, from the patina selection through to custom door handles and hinges. With a couturier’s approach to design, Salvagni is dedicated to retaining authentic touches in his contemporary offering, bringing the decorative grandeur of the Roman Empire into wholly modern pieces.
