Company: Pininfarina of America
Global icon of Italian style, Pininfarina is the prestigious 360° design powerhouse recognized for the unparalleled ability to create timeless beauty.
The design house was founded in Turin-Italy in 1930 by Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina, one of the most legendary car designers of all time.
In 1986, continuing the family design legacy, Paolo Pininfarina founded Pininfarina Extra, with the mission to expand Pininfarina design vision into other fields of design, transportation, and architecture. In 2013, the expansion of Pininfarina Extra culminated with the creation of Pininfarina of America, based in Miami, Florida. All together the Pininfarina Extra group’s activities span across Industrial Design (electronics, sporting goods, furniture, equipment and machinery, consumer products, graphic design and packaging), Architecture and Interiors (residential, hospitality, sport and commercial structures), and Transportation Design (yachts, airplanes, private jets, people movers).
Pininfarina Extra has received many awards during the years, notably the 2015 American Architecture Award for Vitra by Pininfarina, 2016 German Design Award for the Fincantieri ‘Ottantacinque’ Yacht, and the 2016 iF Design award for Cyrela by Pininfarina Architecture and Interiors, the 2017 Good Design Award for the Snaidero Aria by Pininfarina, and 2017 iF Design Award for Product Design of the E-voluzione electric bike.
