Francesco Librizzi Studio was founded in Milan in 2005 with a focus on architecture, interior design and outfitting. The studio projects explore the relationship between the existing architectural heritage and the construction of new spaces inside it. In this view, it's worth mentioning the Italy Pavillion at the 2010 Venice Biennale and the Bahrain Pavillion for the 2012 Biennale.

Among the numeruous awards received, Prix Émile Hermès (2008), the Honorable Mention at the Compasso d'Oro (2014), “AZ Awards 2015 Best Residential Interior" and “Premio Archmarathon 2015 Private Housing”. He is currently Guest Professor at the Master Urban Vision and Architectural Design, the Master Interior and Living Design by Domus Academy and the Faculty of Architecture in Genoa.
Bioforest is an association originated from the will to foster a productive culture and raise the awareness of the environment, as well as concretely contributing to restore and preserve the natural resources. With this in mind, it aims at making the industry aware of the environmental problems.
The association's primary goal is grouping together all those who want to commit themselves to rehabilitate and rebuild the destroyed and consumed forest ecosystems, both in Italy and worldwide, by financing reforestation projects in compliance with the original natural ecosystems.
The designers Stefano Citi, Maurizio Lai, Francesco Librizzi, Raffaella Mangiarotti, Philippe Nigro, Lorenzo Palmeri, Federico Peri and Ilkka Suppanen challenged people to imagine a fragile, transparent and precious object like the glass as the wishes keeper for Another World. A world that should be more sustainable for the future of the Planet.
