A conversation with Clara Bona

"Luxury is about simplicity."

I am an architect and a journalist, and I have always been both at the same time. After graduating from an art secondary school, I studied Architecture at the Politecnico di Milano. Meanwhile, I also attended an advertising graphics evening school, and one year after finishing university, in 1989, I graduated from the evening school too. In those years, no IT programs were used for design, which was mostly manual.

Sometimes, I used to think that it was a waste of time to draw in that traditional, persnickety way. Today, however, I appreciate this method, which has given me so much. Writing was another passion of mine, so I started visiting editorial offices (this is how we used to do at that time!) and offering to write design and lifestyle features. I managed to become a contributor, and thus to join the National Order of Journalists. In my first jobs at architecture studios, my role was more about technical tasks, like bureaucratic procedures for construction sites. I also took care of the interior styling of residences for photo shootings.
