Massimo Zaniboni graduated in 1994 with honors in Architecture at the Politecnico di Milano with 3-wheeled vehicle design, with an electric-powered aluminum space frame, developed in collaboration with Pininfarina and the Fiat Research Center.
The project is exhibited at the National Motorcycle Museum and puts the author to the attention of the Piaggio-Gilera of Pontedera, where he matures his first professional experiences as a designer employed by the Style Center.
Soon, Aprilia, Italjet, and Kymco gave him the opportunity to pursue a free profession by involving him in several innovative scooter and motorbike projects and in advanced design activities.
In 1996 Arkema Studio was founded, a workshop able to produce in a few years different prototypes of scooters, accessories, and concept bikes characterized by innovative technical and stylistic solutions that always stand out for their strong formal personality.
Receives several awards including the \”Ducati R & D Special Award\” and is named by the magazine Ottagono among the Best Italian Designers under 30.
In the 2000s, he designed the style of several highly successful products for Kymco, continuing the experimental activity in parallel, developing prototypes for Moto Guzzi, Italjet, Mondial Moto, and vehicles with the low environmental impact on 3 and 4 wheels, exhibited in museums and international events.
In September 2009 Kymco Agility became the best-selling scooter ever in Italy.
Today he continues to design vehicles and accessories for the most prestigious motorcycle companies and, thanks to the Diploma Master in Innovation Management, he has diversified his activity into new sectors, inaugurating prestigious collaborations with product and furniture design companies that involve him for the development of projects that stand out for technological innovations that the author always manages to propose in a rational and refined way, even when ironic.
