Silvio Piattelli - The Midmodernist

Strada Fillinelle, 5
Tavarnelle Val di Pesa (FI) 50028
          I’m Silvio Piattelli, the owner of The Midmodernist, I was born in Florence and now live in the Chianti countryside just outside the city. I was raised in a loving art family. My parents were close to artists like Oskar Kokoschka, Darius Milhaud, Jacques Lecoq and Betty Woodman. Much of my career has been devoted to working with Italian artists and artisans who make simply exquisite pieces. I love scouting for pieces in odd corners and making them accessible to mid-century modern buyers all around the world. In the early ’80s, I started working with wood carvings and marble for Sarreid Ltd, then expanded into shaded lamps for Paul Hanson and glass accessories at Dolbi Cashier and several others. In the ’90s I represented Murano glass maker Sergio Rossi and a partner of the Zero Company for high-end furniture in marble and wood. At the end of the '90s I became the exclusive Italian agent for Oggetti, the leading importer of Murano glass. I was in charge of product development and sourcing and launched lighting and furniture at the company. I find many of the pieces I exported decades ago now on the best mid-century modern stores. I had the privilege to know the maker and sometimes seeing the piece made. I started building my own catalog with unique pieces for true collectors and cosmopolitan interior designers. Follow my account to see my new discoveries. I am honored to be friend of artisans, glass Maestro and designers who build the Italian home furnishing reputation. Carlo Nason, Livio Seguso, Giulio Lazzotti and many others. I make my own production of lighting and furniture that is available to the same customers.
