Creative Founder

Marianna Piccolo, an exceptionally original and creative Italian luxury interior designer, has been based in Dubai since 2009, where she has been recognized twice as one of the most powerful and influential Middle East designers by CID magazine. She is a regular speaker at architectural conferences and interior design forums including Women in Construction Summit 2019, inspiring her peers and a whole new generation of young designers.


Born in Puglia in Southern Italy, her sense of aesthetics was shaped at a very young age by the rural beauty, culture, folk music, art, and architecture of her homeland. Her passion for design led her to pursue a degree in interior design at the prestigious Polytechnic University of Milan. After her graduation in 2007, she came under the mentorship of legendary Italian interior designer and architect, Marco Piva. Under his guidance, she developed a rational approach to design combined with the creative freedom to think out of the box.


Inspired by Piva’s provocation to think big, she moved to Dubai in 2009 to work as a design consultant for high profile companies including RW Armstrong, Sinergo S.P.A, and Al Tayer Group. Six years down the line, in 2014, she founded her eponymous studio called MyPickOne and became one of the most notable women entrepreneurs in UAE’s luxury interior design industry.


As the Principal designer of MyPickOne studio, she brings 15 years of enviable experience in luxury design to lead her team of talented creatives. Her signature Residential and Commercial projects in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Puglia, and Paris stand testament to her incredible skill and vision. Her successful collaborations with great Italian masters including celebrated architect Piero Lissoni and artisans like Domenico, make her projects stand head and shoulders above many. Marianna’s passion for interior design is complimented by twin loves: Photography and Fashion. This gives her an edge and a natural eye when it comes to composition, colour palettes, fabrics, and textures.
