B’io

Gianluca Vernizzi was born on August 12, 1964 in Italy, educated in UK and USA, and resident in Thailand since 2014. Son of late twentieth century industrial entrepreneur and poet, Giorgio Gionata Vernizzi, and grandchild of painter and decorator Giuseppe Vernizzi.

His family household in Modena was a lively social and cultural meeting point for some of the most celebrated figures among Italian postwar design and art circles, perhaps most notables among them the furniture fabricator and design entrepreneur Dino Gavina, artists Pier Luigi Testi, Gian Marco Montesano, and visionary art collector Carlo Cattelani. He lived and worked in California, North Carolina, New York, Boston, London, Bologna and travelled the world to come in contact with a wide variety of cultures and contemporary art influences as to develop his own conceptual language to redefine environmental ‘beauty”.

With his lifelong passion for radical approaches to innovation, Gianluca Vernizzi effortlessly combines the worlds of art, design and technology-driven humanistic research; he sees art as the creative catalyst, cultural legacy as the resilience binder, and technology as the betterment accelerator.
