Markus Benesch is a self-taught designer, inventor, and artist. Among other works he also works on interior decoration with a very distinguished style.
His first creation—a wooden submarine that he built and sank when he was 9 years old—ultimately led him to his first commercial project at age 18: the design of two stores for Benetton while he was still in school.
Markus learned Italian stucco techniques and tromp l’oeil painting from Italian and Belgian masters. His creative ideas combined with his ability for flawless execution has earned him a strong reputation in the creative and commercial industries.
The creation of immersive experiences, including the physical space (walls, ceiling and floor) as well as the objects and clothing of the participants has become his studio’s unique identity. “With each project, our experience, knowledge and curiosity grow.”
Today, Markus lives between Munich, Milan and New York and holds lectures and workshops as a guest professor at L´ESAD Reims, NABA Milano, IED Milano and Politecnico di Milano, in the field of interior, product and innovative design.
