Luxurious simplicity
Dubai-based, Italian-born Marianna Piccolo fuses cultures with luxurious simplicity in an unmistakably Parisian apartment.

Marianna Piccolo, an avid reader of identity, is an architect and interior designer who in 2014 founded My Pick One Studio Design in Dubai Design District (d3). Her aesthetics were moulded by the beauty, culture, music, and art of her childhood home in southern Italy, and her skills were developed at the legendary Polytechnic University of Milan. Under the esteemed tutelage of identity Design Awards juror Marco Piva, Piccolo honed her philosophy of discovering the beauty of luxurious simplicity. Piva taught her a rational approach to design and encouraged her to listen to her inner creative voice and think beyond the established norms. Her love for imperial Italian architecture, as well as the beauty of the simple and rustic, makes all her designs pleasingly elegant and workable.

In February this year, the 38-eight-year-old creative entrepreneur was named as one of the ‘Top 50 Most Influential Designers in the Middle East’, a major accomplishment for the head of a young boutique firm. In each of its 50 high-end commercial, hospitality, residential and retail projects in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Italy, and France, My One Pick has always been mindful of each client’s requirements, budgets, and timelines in their bespoke designs.
