He is professor of Industrial Design at Milan Polytechnic, as Director of CIRIS (the Interdepartmental Centre for Research on Innovation for Sustainability), where he focuses on innovative processes in the system of production and consumption and, in particular, on the relationship between product strategies and environmental policies in the perspective of sustainable development.

Manzini is the author of several design books, including The Material of Invention, Artifacts: Towards a New Ecology of the Artificial Environment, and Solid Side: The Search for Consistency in a Changing World (with Marco Susani). His recent book, Sustainable Everyday envisions what life might be like in a sustainable society, putting forth possible scenarios and workable alternatives.
