His studio works on numerous projects in a range of design spheres such as product design, interior arrangement and architecture (designing homes, stores, showrooms and exhibition stands).

In 2013, alongside his collaborations with renowned companies, he created his own brand, Seminato Mercadente, to self-produce products characterised by vigorous research, experimentation and innovation. The brand takes its name from its head office, an evocative space restored by Roberto Paoli, in an historic building (early 1900s) in Milan.
