Mirko’s short bio:
Mirko was born and raised on the Amiata Mountain, a unique natural enclave in Southern Tuscany, Italy. Once a natural volcano, now a green protected area and homeland of visionary and anarchic personalities, the mountain preserves the charm of an ancestral world now keen on sustainable development. In the ‘80s experienced the thrills of professional alpine ski racing all over Europe and practiced athletics on the 100 and 200m sprint (10,60 personal best on 100m) before undertaking his design studies. He’s now off-road motorbike racer in international rallies.
After graduating at ISIA Florence Mirko studied at Minneapolis College of Art and Design – USA and at the Hochschule der Bildenden Kunst in Saarbrucken, Germany.
He has taught courses at ISIA in Florence since 1998 and he’s now professor of “Strategic Design” at the Master Degree in Design.
Mirko Tattarini travelled and worked over 50 countries, as Lagos CEO and as expert of International Development, such as Western Europe, Americas, Middle East, Nord Africa, the whole Balkan region, Arabic Peninsula, China and Japan.
His works have been broadcasted and published in several media worldwide and he frequently travels for lectures and symposiums throughout the world.
He’s been repeatedly awarded at international level in product design, graphics, interiors and architecture.

An inseparable, incompatible according to many of our sector, part of being MRK.
Once the alpine skiing, some tennis tournaments, sprint race on 100m dash, and now the rallies on motorbike. In between, running, mushroom search, trail, bicycle. But with ping pong I accept bets.

The obsession for protecting privacy and confidentiality against the contemporary search for consensus. And the repulsion for grotesque, artificial, mannerist appearance modes as too often happens in the design system today.
