A design vision inspired by the
concepts of proportion, aesthetics
and attention to detail, along with
a deep understanding of materials,
guides the Robertopamio+partners’
business philosophy and finds its
fullest expression in the lighting
and furniture designs. Characterized
by the ideas of eco-sustainability
and harmony with the surrounding
environment, the company’s numerous
urban projects make use of new
technologies, like photovoltaic
systems and eco-friendly products.
The company has collaborated
on projects in the fields of lighting
(Artemide, Fabbian, iGuzzini, Leucos
and Oty Light), furniture (Arc Linea,
Arflex and Matteograssi) and street
furniture (Metalco, Calzavara).
Fully respecting the principles of
sustainability and health, the new
collection of eco-furniture created
for Staygreen aims to extol the
virtues of cardboard a material that
offers excellent technical properties.

Alfonso was born in Taurianova in 1966. He graduated from the University of Genoa – School of Architecture in 1992. In 1995, Alfonso Femia founded 5+1 where the research on the contemporary city has been carried along with the requalification of urban spaces and significant buildings. The studio, that became 5+1AA agenzia di architettura in 2005, is based on an interdisciplinary relationship that develops itself between the studios of Genoa, Milan (2006) and Paris (2007), creating a triangle between cities, cultures and confrontation. In 2015, Alfonso Femia created 500×100 and 500x100Talk. 500×100 is a place where dialog occurs through physical encounter, in the search of glances and words that generate reflections, connections and thoughts when they meet. A way to confront each other on the city, become aware of it and discuss different visions.
Alfonso Femia works on the research of matter as a dialog tool with space and light. This research lead him to develop new concepts and products with Castaldi Lighiting, I Guzzini, Martinelli Luci, Erco, Staygreen, Atanor, Casalgrande Padana, Poltrona Frau, XIlo1934, ... He developed, with Staygreen, the products “cube magique”, 3se, and “Millesfoglie”... In 2017, Alfonso Femia starts the dialog “L’entre-deux” with international writers and architects on the issue of the city and the Mediterreanean area. He lives and spends his time between Genoa, Milan and Paris.
