Valerio Cometti works in partnership with many international brands and is the designer of the FIAM desk in glass called Bright.
He earned his degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1975 at the Politecnico University in Milan and in 2005 he came back from Australia and established the Cometti+V12 Design Studio.

In 2008 Valerio Cometti took the baton from Castiglioni, Bonetto and Sottsass and became the designer of the renowned LaCimbali and Faema coffee machines.
In 2010 he started new prestigious collaborations in the design industry, from furniture design with Riva1920 to outdoor design with Corradi SpA.
Toward the end of 2011, Mediaset put Valerio Cometti in charge of the styling and development of its first and ambitious project in the consumer electronics field. Always in 2011 he launched on the market as art director the brand FEB31ST: innovative brand in luxury eyewear.
In 2012, Valerio Cometti, together with the architect Paolo Balzanelli, unveiled the MuMaC project, the largest museum of the history of coffee machines in the world in Milan: an imposing architecture to celebrate the 100th anniversary of LaCimbali and the prestigious historical collection of Enrico Maltoni.
