Montreal-based art director Stefano Giacomello creates sophisticated three-dimensional renderings of interior spaces; his photo-realistic rooms feature interpretations of real objects and furniture made by a variety of well-known designers.
Giacomello uses vivid coloring in his geometric spaces, creating compositions that focus on a specific palette for each room. Characterized by light, shadow, and space, each architecturally-inspired render features curved archways, minimal furniture, low-hanging neon lights, and contrasting textures from the walls to the floors. Giacomello places sculpted vases, sinuous lamps, curved chairs and side tables in each room, based on real objects and furniture pieces by designers we have previously featured on IGNANT: vases by Valeria Vasi, a glass chair by Nendo, and lighting by Lambert & Fils, among others. The art director’s interest in light and space extends beyond digital illustration: much of Giacomello’s career involves set design, scenography, and lighting for clients such as Japanese fashion house Comme des Garçons and Milanese shoe designer Angela Mitchell.
