7 NAME TO WATCH JONATHAN MIZZI

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style The Britlist -

Who is he?

A Bri­tish- Mal­tese de­signer who stud­ied set de­sign and vis­ual ef­fects through­out Europe and Amer­ica, Mizzi qual­i­fied as an ar­chi­tect at the Bartlett School of Ar­chi­tec­ture, UCL in 2008. He worked for Foster + Part­ners and de­sign stu­dio Cin­i­mod be­fore found­ing Mizzi Stu­dio in 2011.

What’s his style?

He calls it ‘neo-fu­tur­is­tic’, which we’re trans­lat­ing as build­ings and prod­ucts de­fined by mod­ern, grav­ity- de­fy­ing shapes and slick ma­te­ri­als. Mizzi is a huge sci-fi fan, which comes through in his stu­dio’s tech­no­log­i­cal de­signs – they strive to ‘trans­form ideas and fan­tasy into re­al­ity’.

Where can I see his de­signs?

Head to West­field Strat­ford City to ad­mire the cop­per curves of the stu­dio’s de­sign for Colicci cafe (right). You’ll also find Mizzi at this year’s Decorex de­sign fair, where he’s ex­hibit­ing the ‘Awk­ward Ta­ble’ se­ries (right; mizzi.co).
