The works of Simone Micheli are very diverse. He does architecture and interior works, visual design and integrated communication. The buildings that Micheli designs have a futuristic aesthetic and usually have more rectilinear lines in the outside. Inside, he thinks a lot about the use the final user will give to the building and creates the spaces and rooms according to that. In addition, he usually uses curvilinear lines, the white color and light to make a division more peaceful and quiet and uses a few colors that stand out to give a strong accent so typically of Micheli. He also thinks about sustainability and the environment with the materials he uses, but his great characteristic is that he makes his work and design with his heart. He never stops thinking about his projects and he even had some great ideas dreaming.
