About Us

Mercedes-Benz Italia Advanced Design was founded in 1998 to evolve the design activities within Mercedes-Benz and that of the Daimler Group.

Our studio benefits from the Daimler know-how and worldwide knowledge in the many disciplines connected to automotive design. We take our title very seriously and believe, the only way to create truly sophisticated advanced design is to be inspired by living and working right in the heart of it.

For this reason Mercedes-Benz. Italia Advanced Design is located in Como, Italy in close contact with Milan, the design capital of Europe, allowing us to draw experiences and inspiration from Italian sensitivity and taste.

Advanced design is first of all our philosophy applied to the automotive industry. Sharing this philosophy with our clients is a natural step toward the creation of products with the same passion for design that has made Mercedes what it is today.

Mercedes-Benz Italia Advanced Design is a studio of highly trained, truly international specialists in various design disciplines including transportation, product, C&T, strategic designers, trend analysts, engineers and model makers.

The wide specialization and competence of our team provides a tailored support service from initial concepts through product realization, allowing flexibility and innovation, together with experience and networking that makes us highly confident in the creative and technical quality of our work.
