Elisa Gargan is the wife and business partner of Stefano Giovannoni, who was defined by Eugenio Perazza, owner of Magis, as ‘the most bankable designer' of our times.

How it is possible to ignore the fact that the success of Giovannoni Design is also due to Elisa Gargan’s skills as a designer, promoter, and organizer?


Born in Pordenone in 1960, Elisa Gargan Giovannoni studied at the Polytechnic School of Design in Milan where she found her personal and professional dimension. From 1986 to 1991 she collaborated with Michele De Lucchi and then joined Giovannoni Design, becoming an active part in designing countless successful products.
