With over 30 years of experience, Oswaldo Mellone has become a reference due to his contribution to Brazilian design. Throughout his career, he has received a series of national and international awards.
He graduated in Industrial Design from the Armando Alvares Penteado Higher School of Art, FAAP, and subsequently obtained a specialization from the School of Propaganda and Marketing, ESPM. Invited by the Japanese government, he studied at the University of Tokyo, where he worked as a project manager.
Right after graduating, Mellone worked as an assistant to the iconic Jorge Zalszupin, an architect, designer, and creative director of L’Atelier Móveis. Together, they developed many products that are recognized and valued to this day.
Upon returning to Brazil, he set up his own studio, Mellone + Associados. Known for his involvement in various design fields, he was the first Brazilian to receive the IF Design Prize twice. He designed furniture for Probjeto and Teperman, both benchmarks in modern design. Now, he is designing his first collection for Tora Brasil.
