Profile
Andrea Ponti is a Hong Kong based Italian designer specializing in industrial design, branding and art direction who has developed hundreds of products currently on the market. Born in Cagliari, Italy, in 1985, he has lived in Japan from 2006 to 2013. Fascinated by the artful simplicity yet sophisticated rationality of Japanese industrial design, he left his home country to carry out innovative stylistic research in Japan, after graduating in product design from the Politecnico in Milan, Italy.

A researcher and freelance designer at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan, he has been on numerous internship programs with leading transportation and consumer electronics companies (Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi Electric). For several years, he has worked in renowned design firms in Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto, learning directly from contemporary Japanese design leaders. Andrea has also organized many exhibits and events for the Salone del Mobile Milan, a leading international furniture and design show in Italy.

In 2012 he has established Ponti Design Studio Ltd. and moved to Hong Kong on May 2013. Currently Art Director and Chief Designer with Pineway Asia Ltd and Innopocket, he collaborates with several Italian and international design companies and fashion houses. His creations are published in the major trade media.
