Over the course of the years, Pinaffos projects have encompassed architecture, interior design and furnishing and graphic design. Since the mid-1990s, however, he has mainly worked as a freelancer in the area of industrial design. In time, Pinaffo developed a strong specialisation for office, community, business and home seating solutions, collaborating with leading organisations in the various sectors. His critical approach to solving technical problems results in original solutions that are often so innovative they become patented trademarks.
Pinaffo's work with its unerring pursuit of simplicity and meticulous attention to detail looks to achieve aesthetic and technical originality whilst maintaining a constant state of equilibrium between form, function and production requirements.
