In 1999 he opened Studio28 GinoCarollo, trying to create a qualified team to support the companies of the branch. The design of products, connected to the engineering and the realization of models and prototypes, turned out to be useful tools, which let the studio have important results and establish long-term collaborations. The industrial design activity of Studio 28 have been developed and expanded in the last years, with the introduction of other sectors, in particular covering the field of architectural planning of exposition spaces, showrooms and corporate identity.
