Swedish-Italian architect and artist Duilio Forte studied architecture at the Politechno di Milano whereafter he founded Atelier FORTE, an architecture and sculpture research laboratory. Forte’s work explores natural and man-made places. By transposing and actualizing the power of myth he constructs timeless events from a new era: the ArkiZoic. In 2008 Forte began an artistic enquiry into the multi-faceted identity of the mythical horse Sleipnir.
Forte has been a guest at the Venice Architectural Biennale and his works has shown in Italy, Sweden, Greece, and USA.
As a furniture designer Forte works in limited edition pieces such as the Freya chairs, inspired by Norse mythology and goddess of love. The chairs are almost skeletal in design but are made of iron and wood. The Museum of Furniture Studies hold one of piece by Duilio Forte, the Dvivlius chair made of solid steel and plywood.
